My company is a small business that specializes in training, certification and auditing services for government, military and aerospace applications. As a new business with significant exposure to risk, we have much to learn about legal agreements and contracts. To protect the future of our business, we hired Lisa Pomerantz based on her combination of practice areas and years of experience. Upon meeting her the professionalism she displayed gave us an immediate feeling of security when we discussed our business needs.
In December 2017, we hired Attorney Pomerantz to review a contract for our company to develop training materials and to provide online training services for a larger training company. Lisa reviewed the contract and quickly identified hidden partnerships we were not aware of, copyright agreements that were not established for our training materials and she helped us realize that that our compensation was not clearly defined.
My company's intellectual property could have been captured without my knowledge and we could have lost critical trade secrets specific to our company's unique skills. The agreement was loaded with many hidden traps that would have paralyzed our small company without our knowledge.
Our "near miss" is a perfect example of how small businesses can be taken advantage of by larger businesses and it is imperative to seek the "best" attorney for the specific business model.
I am grateful that my husband researched Attorney Pomerantz's profile and found that several of her practice areas were perfect for our business: consulting, training, computer and internet law.
Her expertise in early assessment, negotiation and business law has certainly keep our company from making critical mistakes when developing new relationships with our clients. She has protected us thus far and we look forward to a long profitable relationship!
