The Harvard Business Review talks about how innovators like Uber and AirBnb became successful and disrupted global markets by ignoring laws and regulations that rapidly became obsolete in contrast to the newest societal needs, creating the so-called “spontaneous deregulation”. Cutting corners gave them a huge, but extremely risky competitive advantage over their precursors from the transportation and hotel industries, which couldn’t afford to do that even if they wanted to.

Now, if a competitor ”enters the market and ignores key regulations, it is natural to seek legal assistance—perhaps through private litigation or by urging a regulator to take action. When violations are clear-cut, this strategy can be effective, if the incumbents and those protected by the regulations unite behind it” and we can help you build a case to protect your business.

However, there are many drawbacks to filing a lawsuit in this scenario, as courts are skeptical of competitors looking to “restore justice” and the process can get lengthy and over-complicated depending on the volatility of the political climate and how a market’s stakeholders can influence lawmakers.

On the other hand, if you are inspired to innovate your area of business, navigating the best course of action within the current legal framework is something we can help you with, while also mitigating for regulations which would reflect the new reality that your innovative service or product is creating. For some people it is easier to ask for forgiveness than to get permission, but we believe we can help you grow your business the right way.

I left a voicemail for Tom late Sunday evening and received a phone call first thing the next morning.

Tom was very quick to reply to any questions I had, and if he was caught up in a meeting, he was sure to return my call promptly.

Tom provided sound and logical advice, during a very stressful and uncertain time. At times I asked him to be more aggressive and was often met with the pros and cons of that decision, allowing me to understand the approach and thought process behind his strategy.

Ultimately he provided options for several paths for us to take, worked swiftly, and got us where we needed to be.

He reached out several times to check on my sanity and make sure I was good.

As someone with very high expectations, I would highly recommend his services. He provided expertise that proved to be successful, and also took the time to make sure I was emotionally solid.

Tom assisted with me with a 50% / 50% ownership conflict.

What was thought to be a simple breach of contract turned into a nightmare. Through their tenacity and their deep knowledge of the law, we were successful. There is no reason to look any further as you will not get any better representation than this firm. I highly recommend them and strongly suggest that if you are considering starting a business or are already managing one, this firm will guide you, avoiding the troubled waters businesses sometimes find themselves in.
