I help startups, entrepreneurs, and business owners identify and reach goals. I assist clients with forming and structuring entities, raising capital from investors through equity and debt financings, protecting intellectual property, and drafting contracts to protect the client’s interests. I use the tools and experience I have both as an attorney and entrepreneur to create practical legal strategies for each particular client.
I work as part of a team of entrepreneurial-minded business lawyers who provide practical advice, transparent flat rates, and quick turnaround times.
We use custom technology to decrease costs, increase efficiency, and provide the highest quality legal services at competitive rates. We offer transparent flat rates, so you will know upfront what services you will receive and at what price. We remove unnecessary legalese and craft our documents so they are easier to understand. We are accessible; we keep you informed on your matter and respond promptly to your questions and concerns.
We help businesses with all aspects of startup and operation, including business formations, contracts, intellectual property protection, securities (financing), commercial real estate, and mergers and acquisitions.
Outside the office I enjoy spending time with my wife, two sons, and dog; hanging out outside: hiking, running, backpacking, fly fishing, skiing, BBQing, watching the hops in my backyard grow, and rock climbing. Experimenting with brewing beer; swimming and waterskiing at Lake Chelan; rooting for the Seattle Seahawks; and drinking good coffee and IPAs.
Hourly ($350-425/hour), Fixed (sometimes), Retainer (always), Free consultation (30 minutes)
