Our Approach

CLG is primarily a business transactional law firm, geared to privately held companies –

We serve as general counsel for clients for whom full time general counsel is not feasible or needed. As your general counsel, we provide ongoing legal advice and negotiate and document your business transactions; for needs beyond our areas of practice, we refer clients to lawyers we know, have worked with and trust. Our lawyers have extensive experience in a wide range of business transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, venture capital and other financing, taxation and real estate.

CLG’s job is to make sure you get a great return on your investment in legal services –

We take a fresh approach to add value to each of your business transactions by starting with the answers to two questions:
1. Can we structure the transaction to improve the economics for you?
2. Can we strengthen your negotiating position by improving the economics for the other party?

Our retainer based fee structure makes legal services affordable –

In response to growing client concerns about traditional, premium hourly billing, we use a retainer based fee structure whenever possible. This structure features prepaid legal services at more reasonable effective rates and fixed fees for specific projects.
