About Company:
Our firm is the outside legal department for growing Small Businesses. We focus on proactively representing businesses and protecting them from the wide variety of risks they face. This includes succession and tax planning, equity structures, intellectual property such as trademarks, drafting and reviewing contracts, resolving disputes and litigation, hiring and firing employees, and all the non-legal issues that come up along the way.

We sell our services on a subscription basis, and when clients need work outside those carefully defined scopes, we create value-priced proposals so our clients know what they're paying before we actually do the work. We're not selling services by the hour.

Our employees typically work from home using systems that were in place well before COVID. We still need to meet each other and clients in person though, so we maintain a professional office. New Orleans candidates are preferred, but not required.
