Starting your business is the first step to a lifelong dream. During the early stages, your time, energy, and focus must be exclusively on executing your idea, not getting bogged down in the details. That's where we come in.

We've been there.

We are "second act" attorneys - a group of CMU grads who formed a company the day after graduation. We almost didn't make it. We were on a shoestring budget, and decided to handle the legal side ourselves. We were smart kids, how hard could it be?

Pretty hard, it turns out. We made a mistake- one that cost us dearly. It was one of the darkest times of our early growth period, and our company almost didn't survive. We realize how much is on the line at this phase of the business lifecycle. That's why we've made it our specialty.

We'll be there for you.

We want to be there from Day One. We know that a great idea needs more- you need investors, you need market research, you need a business plan, you need the legal and physical infrastructure to be set up for success. We can help- with all of it. We secured investment for our first software company in 2001 and we've maintained our tight connections with local investment groups to this day. We've watched the local scene evolve - Pittsburgh wasn't on the map as far as the tech world was involved when we started, and now we've seen companies such as Uber and Google bring offices here. We've played an instrumental role in fostering the tech community here. We know what a young startup needs to do to be successful, and we're passionate about sharing that knowledge with you.  

We'll be everything you need. Nothing you don't.

Not all problems look the same. Not all solutions look the same. Not all startups look the same. We get this, and we firmly believe there is no "one size fits all" approach to startup legal services. We get a feel for where you are in the process, what your budget is, what your needs are, and how we can fit in. We don't move forward until we feel we have a full and true 'meeting of the minds', where we have a shared vision with you of what success is and how we can work together to achieve it.
