Vested brings a diverse skill set to the table that lets us understand who you are, what you do, and how you do it.  As lawyers, we are increasingly called upon to provide counsel on issues requiring knowledge that is generally considered to be beyond the scope of a traditional legal education and practice.

In addition to being world-class transactional and litigation attorneys, we also have deep expertise and experience in entrepreneurship, technology, finance and business strategy.

Additionally we have formed alliances with diverse non-legal allies to assist in areas outside of our own skill sets.

Vested understands that good communication between a business’ principals and their legal counsel is just as important as the knowledge base that the counsel brings to bear.
