Our Approach

Our Approach

Understanding the Business and Legal Needs of Our Clients

Clients often come to us seeking help with a specific legal need or problem.  This initial engagement is usually a spring board for a more comprehensive relationship, one based on mutual trust, commitment, responsiveness and, ultimately, results.  We strive to be a resource clients turn to first when they need seasoned legal advice coupled with cutting-edge business strategy.

In this increasingly complex world, legal issues and business issues often intertwine and clients need comprehensive solutions. By carefully balancing both the legal necessities and business realities faced by clients, we provide value beyond that of legal representation. Clients gain a legal and business confidante, someone who is focused both on the bigger picture and all the nuanced details along the path.

We advise, we strategize, we advocate and we negotiate, but most importantly we collaborate to help clients solve problems, navigate roadblocks and realize their business vision.

Client Oriented, Client Focused, Innovative

Hutner Klarish LLP combines big firm experience and skills with the personal attention, thoughtful service and beneficial cost structure of a boutique law firm.  We help clients with all aspects of their corporate life, from formation and capital raising, to employment matters, strategic relationships and contracts, trademarks, office and store leases, compliance with laws and regulations, litigation, dispute resolution and exit strategy.  We continually strive to help your company build and realize value.

Our clients do not present “cookie cutter” issues, nor do we provide cookie cutter solutions.  We are not merely problem spotters who tell clients all the reasons they cannot accomplish their objectives.  Instead, we strive to find paths to “yes” by developing innovative solutions to enable clients to work around or through obstacles.

Clients also have access to our well-developed and extensive network of contacts and working relationships.  By making strategic introductions ranging from angel investors to service providers, all the way to investment banking relationships and the like, we help ensure that clients get value from our extensive network.

General Counsel

We provide a full range of legal services targeted to the needs of mid-sized, start-up and evolving companies, the entrepreneurs who create them, the investors who fund them, and the people who work for them.

Many companies cannot afford, or choose not to have, in-house counsel.  We fill this role on demand.  You can feel assured that our lawyers know your business and are there whenever a situation arises for which you need counsel.  By serving as general outside counsel to a wide variety of clients, we are the first place they turn whenever a legal issue arises.  We know our strengths and our limits; if a specialist is called for, we also know the right ones to tap.
