Business

On demand, real-time advice is our watchword -- no "it depends" or memos here. We bleed for our clients and we love startups!

What are your firm's strengths and style?

At ParadigmShift Law, our mission is finding creative and efficient ways for entrepreneurial, Web and emerging growth companies to validate their business models and to navigate the labyrinth of legal and regulatory barriers impacting innovation. Our differentiation is real-time, proactive advice for small and large clients alike. We often handle sophisticated work for sophisticated companies, operating close to our business principals, bridging the too-often wide gap between outside counsel and corporate strategic objectives. Many clients serve highly regulated industries including financial services, life sciences, telecommunications, media and consumer services, requiring complex compliance regimes across several different legal and regulatory domains -- work that doesn"t lend itself to in-house hiring.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

We absolutely love DIY clients and are always happy to assist self-help businesses to increase efficiency and keep legal costs low. An informed client is our best customer.
