Legal Services Redefined

We have created a new law firm model that provides our clients with hands-on, big-firm corporate legal services at fixed fees that make business sense.

  • Since the firm’s founding in the beginning of 2000, we have been singularly focused on providing corporate legal services to entrepreneurial growth companies (whether start-up, emerging-growth or middle-market) and the investors that finance them.
  • We provide blue chip legal services. Our founder, Michael Horten is a US and European educated lawyer with over 40 years’ experience as a practicing attorney. Michael began his legal career with Sullivan & Cromwell in New York and Paris. He then spent 25 years with King & Spalding in Atlanta.
  • We believe law firms don’t need to be in the marble and mahogany clad environment typically associated with a superior legal firm. We understand that clients are tired of paying for needless overhead and overstaffed transactions. We wind-tested the traditional corporate law firm model and removed everything that created drag. As a result, our fees are considerably lower than those charged by firms of comparable ability and quality.
  • We believe our clients need predictable fees and our services are provided on a fixed-fee basis. The time-based billing metric discourages efficiencies and it encourages firms to overstaff matters. Clients deserve flat-out expertise, skill and service without worrying that we’re just clocking minutes. Our clients purchase our skill; not our time.
