We deliver creative, cost-effective and practical legal and business solutions.
Trust. Commitment. Character. We pride ourselves on having those qualities, and they are continually reflected in how we serve our clients. Our mission is to provide each of our clients with quality legal services and counsel that are personable, cost-effective and results oriented. In adhering to this philosophy, we abide by the following guidelines that are often de-prioritized by larger firms:
- We are entrepreneurial in character. We are flexible in our billing practices and are committed to working with our clients to establish a reasonable fee structure, including, as the case may permit, fixed-fee and hybrid fee arrangements.
- We are counselors at law in addition to being lawyers. Our clients frequently ask us to render advice on the business terms of particular deals, and we are able to use the vast number and variety of deals we have been involved in to assist our clients in formulating new business deals and in evaluating business terms.
- We make it a point to know the deal principals. We know most of the real estate representatives of most of the active commercial/retail tenants, title companies, and lenders, and maintain cordial working relationships with them so as to encourage the use of prior documentation to complete new transactions as quickly as possible. We are active in many local, regional and national real estate associations, including the International Council of Shopping Centers (“ICSC”) , the Association of Corporate Real Estate Executives of Southern California (“ACRE So Cal”), and the Institute of Real Estate Management (“IREM”)
- We make it a point to know our clients. Our clients often require last-minute attention and quick responses from attorneys, thus our attorneys are always available to respond and answer questions.
