Since 2005, we have counseled hundreds of social enterprises, nonprofits, & cooperatives. Let's see what we can accomplish together.
Our specialty is working with clients to design their enterprise to be ready to tackle the challenge of raising capital in alignment with their values and from the right types of investors. We do this in partnership with our consulting firm, Cutting Edge Capital.
Beyond capital raise services, we work with clients to choose the right entity structure (benefit corporation, limited liability company, cooperative, nonprofit and hybrid structuring, among others), protect their trade secrets, license their intellectual property, design their best business contracts (leases, finance agreements, contractor arrangements, etc.), understand employment laws, and mediate disputes.
With our low overhead and competitive hourly rates, we help our clients spend more of their resources on what they do best—generating impact.
Our mission is to provide professional and trusted legal services that assist impact enterprises in operating to meet their missions and reach their full potential. We provide expert legal counsel in combination with our own business backgrounds, and deliver valuable services in a timely and cost-effective way. We also live by what we preach—both inside our firm and in our community—by implementing sustainable business practices in every possible way, to help us, and our clients, to become driving forces toward a more democratic economy.
