Specialized. Personalized. Quality.
Winston Churchill once remarked that “a pessimist sees the difficulties in every opportunity and an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.” Since 1993, we’ve been helping clients turn obstacles into new business opportunities. When a small startup was willing to stand up to a multinational corporation in an intellectual property dispute, we helped the startup obtain a multi-million dollar recovery. When a real estate investor saw the profit potential in an over-leveraged property with a troubled tenant, we helped structure the redevelopment of the property with a new tenancy that yielded substantial cash flow to our investor client. From high stakes litigation to complex transactions, we provide winning legal strategies for growing businesses – like yours.
ABOUT GORMAN & MILLER, A LAW CORPORATION
We have a sophisticated business law practice, with an emphasis on commercial real estate transactions, probate litigation and elder abuse, commercial and real estate litigation, international and domestic business transactions, venture capital transactions, intellectual property/trade secrets, employment law, and estate planning. Our clients are private equity real estate funds, affluent individuals, family offices investing in commercial real estate, technology firms, and their principals. We maintain offices in San Jose and Santa Monica to serve the needs of clients in both Northern and Southern California.
By choice, we have remained a small law firm that has established an excellent reputation for providing the highest quality legal services to its clients. Founded in 1993, all of the founding partners are graduates of Stanford Law School with substantial experience handling major legal transactions and disputes. While all of our partners have large law firm backgrounds, they have chosen to practice in a setting that allows them to personally oversee client matters. When clients hire us, they can be assured that experienced, highly professional attorneys will be directly responsible for handling their legal matters.
We are committed to providing the very highest quality legal services while responding quickly and efficiently to the needs of our clients. Our attorneys understand the problems often encountered by clients in specialized industries, and our attorneys maintain a high degree of awareness of, and sensitivity to, the business and economic environment in which clients operate. Our attorneys are strongly encouraged to participate in local, regional and national continuing legal education seminars to enhance our ability to respond to the latest legal developments.
We offer our clients the opportunity to have seasoned business attorneys manage their legal affairs in consultation with senior management. Our attorneys are highly proficient in guiding a company through both complex litigation and business transactions. Our attorneys particularly emphasize preventative law. By special arrangement, we also can be retained to serve as in-house general counsel on a part-time, cost effective basis.
We use technology in our practice wherever we can gain efficiency or make it easier for our clients to use our services. For example, in transactional matters where appropriate (and at no charge to our clients) we use an online document management system called the Closing Table® which enables our clients to easily and securely access, approve and sign transaction documents at any time wherever they have an Internet connection. By enabling the online negotiation, approval, tracking and signing of closing documents, the Closing Table helps us efficiently close deals which involve a large number of documents. For more information on this technology, go to www.closingtable.com.
In litigated matters, where available and appropriate we file and serve our pleadings and other court documents electronically, saving mailing and delivery costs for our clients.
