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. We take the time to sit down with leaders and stakeholders and truly learn about your mission, your values, and where you are in the process. We never waste your time. We work at the speed of innovation, and our solutions are designed to keep you running lean.

'Second-Act' Attorneys

When we say "we've been there", we mean it. Our team is composed of lawyers who had successful careers in the tech sector, including the 2004 acquisition of our startup, before transitioning into the practice of law. When we say this separates us from the rest, we mean it. We understand the challenges that early-stage companies face, and we know that leaders have precious little time to spare during this phase. We also know that you don't want to waste that precious time on "legal nonsense". That's where we come in. 

Committed to an Inclusive Tech Community

Diversity in tech leads to better products, better companies, and a better world. We are committed to amplifying voices in the local tech community that can often go unheard. We do this by:

  • Participating in the Allegheny County GirlsCode! Program as mentors and as one of the three Keystone Donors
  • Offering no-cost workshops for women, LGBTQ+, and minority entrepreneurs
  • Sponsoring one year of space in the Pittsburgh Downtown Incubator for a startup led by member(s) of under-represented groups
