In today’s litigious business environment, most emerging small to mid-size businesses would greatly benefit from routine general legal services. They would have a strategic business advantage to having counsel who understands their business and is truly aligned with the corporate goals and strategy. The traditional multidisciplinary law firm fee for hourly service, while appropriate in many instances, is unworkable for many emerging companies for a variety of reasons.As an entrepreneur business executive, and as an attorney/business counselor, Manfred Sternberg has founded several companies, managed the day-to-day operations of publicly reporting companies, worked for and represented a broad spectrum of enterprises, including businesses in technology, software and website development, data communications, land development, financial institutions, oil and gas, professional services, healthcare, and insurance.
