also known as Teresa B Sumearll
From inventors to manufacturers, from automotive business to software business, I provide legal services designed to bring real, bottom-line value to my clients. Nearly every day, I see the wisdom in the adage “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” where businesses are concerned: hire the lawyer today for preventive legal advice and you will not be struggling with a problem in the future.
With over twenty years of experience in corporate and securities law, I am passionate about working with both technology-based and traditional businesses. I work with a wide variety of clients, including: university spin-outs, medical device manufacturers, medical staffing companies, innovative energy technology firms, software and hardware development firms, automotive parts suppliers, plumbing service companies, fitness centers and restaurants.
Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer
Teresa is a top-notch knowledgeable securities and business lawyer. I handle corporate transactions including private offerings for established clients up to a certain level. When I reach the ceiling of my knowledge, Teresa is an excellent resource for assisting in the more sophisticated issues. She works very collegially and cost-effectively with other attorneys. I have also recommended her for the entire securities offering work for new or less-established clients, where I do not have the background in their business to know what the disclosure memo should cover. Teresa is very affable, pleasant to work with, and dedicated to excellent work product as a reasonable fee.
