Where we started
We are a full-service Ohio business law firm that began in 2012 with one lawyer. We have grown to be a team of exceptional lawyers who are well-respected by their peers and their clients for their proactive and creative approach to business litigation and transactions. Our attorneys saw an opportunity to use our prior business law experience to create a law firm unique in its business background. We have first-hand business experience through our work with CEOs, CFOs, Boards of Directors, corporate officers, and outside counsel.
While working as the first General Counsel for Broadvox, a leading Cleveland-based, next-generation telecommunications company, firm founder Alex Gertsburg developed an acute appreciation for what matters most to businesses: practical advice and cost-effective results. From 2006-2015, he has led the company’s legal department through numerous and varied legal matters, including corporate restructurings; real estate deals and mergers and acquisitions; negotiations and transactions involving commercial, lender, and investor parties; and employment matters and creditors’ rights. He also spearheaded the company’s litigation strategy, personally litigating most of its cases himself. That same sense of results-driven pragmatism and leadership now dominates his firm’s governing philosophy.
How we fight for our business clients
Client engagement begins and ends with the following two questions: What is the expectation? And how do we go beyond it? We achieve this through zealous representation and passionate commitment to our clients’ best interests. Our clients do not get pushed around; we will not allow it. They have rights, whether under a contract or otherwise under the law, and we identify and enforce those rights with all the considerable legal tools at our disposal.
Each client’s case is as personalized as a fingerprint, and it receives that same degree of personalized attention, analysis, and care from our staff. Our Cleveland and Chagrin Falls business lawyers approach every matter recognizing that, for our clients, it may be the most important thing in their business. It may very well be the most important thing in their lives. We also recognize that our business clients have human beings as owners and employees, and that the fate of those businesses is often inseparable from that of the people involved in them.
Finally, we understand that for many of our clients, time is money. To that end, we offer our clients a non-billable alternative On every matter we handle for them – an opt-out of the billable hour. We are the first Ohio business law firm to provide this service. We want our clients to feel confident in their choices, and to help them resolve any issues or potential problems quickly and efficiently, so they can get back to what they love: running their businesses.
