We aspire to achieve a law firm’s highest calling: to be our clients’ trusted advisor in navigating today’s business legal environment. We have designed Protorae Law around the needs of businesses and business men and women. To serve those needs, we formed the following practice teams: Corporate Law, Business Transactions, Employment Law, Government Contracts, Commercial Lending, Real Estate, Construction Law, and Trusts and Estates. For handling dispute resolution, we created our Business Litigation, Unfair Business Practices, and Business Breakups practice teams.
To realize our firm’s objectives, we embrace the basic principle that more can be accomplished through teamwork than by a collection of individuals. Thus, our team approach focuses on two levels of relationships. First, we cultivate a collaborative effort among our attorneys and staff. Many of our lawyers have known or worked with one another for years, and we chose to practice together because of our collective team-first attitudes.
The second level of teamwork is ensuring that we are working with our clients. This means understanding the client’s strategic objectives, and risk and expense tolerance; and then working with the client to identify which tactics to employ. It also allows us to align the strategy for each legal matter with the client’s overarching goals, and provide the client with strategies to minimize the client’s future risks.
Our lawyers also understand the importance of controlling legal costs. For new matters, we consider and discuss with our clients which fee structure would be most appropriate. In addition, as a matter progresses, our firm monitors the amount of our legal bills, and will regularly discuss with our clients the expected costs of a given course of action. Our fee structures discussion can be found here.
Finally, we are willing to invest in the technology and infrastructure required to provide effective coordination with our clients. For example, this website’s architecture allows our firm to set up client extranet pages that enable our clients to sign-in and edit their documents or track a matter.
In short, we have tried to design a law firm around the needs of businesses and business men and women. If you have any questions about our firm’s team approach, our services in general or a specific legal matter, we welcome the chance to speak with you.
