We know business. We’ve been there. Several of WSMB’s attorneys have held senior management positions with entertainment and technology-driven companies. From raising capital to employee disputes, our lawyers have dealt with all the issues businesses routinely face.
We know start-ups. WSMB has unique expertise in representing growth-oriented companies, both start-ups and established businesses. Because our lawyers were founders of start-ups or have served as senior managers of venture capital-funded businesses, we have first-hand knowledge of the legal and business issues involved in starting and growing a successful business.
We know IP. All businesses today have significant technology and IP issues, whether it’s their own product or it’s licensed from others. In addition to our extensive corporate and litigation expertise, WSMB lawyers have the hands-on knowledge of intellectual property, technology and new media that can only be gained from having worked in those fields. WSMB attorneys have the multi-disciplinary experience in both law and business that makes us unique in our representation of clients who have harnessed the power of digital media and distribution.
We solve problems. While our litigators prosecute and defend all kinds of business disputes, many of our transactional lawyers also have extensive litigation experience, enabling our clients to avoid issues that often end up in litigation or arbitration proceedings. We use our decades of experience to find the right solution for every matter we handle.
We know the bottom line. WSMB attorneys have the breadth of legal knowledge and experience, as well as rich entrepreneurial pasts that makes the firm an ideal provider of “general counsel” services. Because several of our attorneys held general counsel positions in privately held companies before joining the firm, WSMB brings a business owner’s mentality to the practice of law. Our attorneys combine their vast legal expertise with practical, “insider” advice to give our clients real-world, cost-effective solutions.
