We engaged Lauren to assist us in adding a new stockholder to our corporation who will ultimately become the majority shareholder. Like many small companies, we knew what we wanted to do, but also understood that a change in ownership encompasses a broad variety of issues of which we may or may not be aware. We prepared an initial purchase and sale agreement and then sat down with Lauren to see what we really needed. Lauren spent about 90 minutes asking a lot of probing questions so she could understand the specifics of our situation. She then told us that we needed 2 documents - a purchase and sale agreement and a shareholders agreement - to address the issues unique to our situation. She then quoted a fee to create each of these documents. I agreed to the reasonable fee and asked her to proceed. Within a few days she produced a purchase and sale agreement and within another week a shareholder's agreement came through. Lauren addressed all of our issues and added others which were pertinent not only to our immediate needs, but to the long term consequences of the present agreement. Of course we had questions which were quickly addressed and final documents were soon ready for signing. The fee charged was less than quoted and the overall experience was better than imagined. The most impressive part of our relationship was Lauren's knowledge of business and how it works beyond the legal issues involved. I have had good and bad interactions with legal professionals before this time and thus had mixed feelings about the legal profession in general. Working with Lauren, however, has raised my perception of the value and importance of legal assistance. I am sure I will request her help in future transactions associated with our business.

Lauren had my business license and contract done in a very short time. She was up to date on what I needed to do and was a pleasure to work with.

I engaged Lauren to represent me in a dispute with a former employer who was violating the terms of my employment contract. Lauren always responded quickly to calls and emails, and provided me with sound, no-nonsense legal advice. Her calm and business-like approach helped cool off what could have been an emotionally explosive situation, had I tried to handle it alone. Best of all, due largely to Lauren's guidance, the issue was settled for the full amount that had been due on the contract.

Atty. Burgon has proven time and again to be invaluable in steering her clients towards the most cost effective and viable legal options. Her attention to detail and complicated contract wording makes paying for the services she provides a very wise investment.

During the purchase of my business I have been fortunate to have Lauren Burgon represent me as the legal counsel on my acquisition team. Lauren’s firm was recommended to me by an advisor who had recommended her firm to many other business owners.
During the process of acquiring the business I found Lauren to be extremely knowledgeable and patient and always making sure that I understood all of the legal details that a new business owner needed to be aware of. I have been impressed with her high degree of integrity and positive attitude. I always felt confident that she was protecting both the opportunities and interests of me while making sure that I was aware of any risks that may exist and whether it should or could be addressed.
At the completion of the transaction there was not any surprise in the fees and I found their costs to be very reasonable. I still use Lauren as legal counsel for my business and will continue to do so. Lauren gave me the confidence that my legal documents would always benefit my business. I highly recommend Lauren and Equinox Law to anyone that has the need for a quality business law group that will protect their interests at all times.

I appreciated Lauren's input to an employment contract I had for another engagement. She kept my companies interests protected and inserted several provisions to support them. It was money well spent.
