My approach to the practice of law is based on over 25 years of experience in the field. The role of an attorney in a law firm is very different from the role of in-house counsel. A law firm attorney must balance the needs of the firm with the needs of the client. An attorney who serves as in-house counsel does not have the administrative demands of a law firm, but must learn to understand what business risks its client is willing to take.
I try to treat my law firm clients as if I am their in-house attorney. I need a good understanding of how the business works so that I can draft and analyze documents that protect the business and meet its goals. My clients appreciate the customized attention they receive. For them, it is not sufficient to just check a box by plugging their business information into a template and calling it a day.
One of the advantages of customized corporate documents for businesses with multiple owners is that the documents spell out the roles and expectations of the owners.
