Our Approach

We have learned — through 15+ years of serving our clients and our own entrepreneurial experiences — that starting and scaling, or successfully investing in, a profitable mission-driven business is a challenging endeavor. Social entrepreneurs and impact investors must navigate a gauntlet of business, legal, and cultural hurdles while also simultaneously attempting to generate positive financial, social, and environmental returns. In the context of this exciting, multifaceted sector, we are uniquely positioned to serve as invaluable advocates, translators, protectors, and connectors.

Known for our collaborative approach, we deliver legal and consulting solutions that break new ground, providing advice and support specifically tailored to organizations acting in and contributing to the impact economy.
