JW Howard/Attorneys announces the formation of a legal network comprised of small firms specializing in the areas most important to business. Specialties covered by the network are corporate, business formations and securities, business and corporate litigation, employment law, copyright, trademark, patent and intellectual property, insurance coverage and real estate transactions from simple landlord/tenant disputes to the negotiation, drafting and documentation of complex real estate purchase, sale and development.

“We perceived a need in the business community for lawyers with particular skills without the overhead and bureaucracy of large firm practice.” said John Howard in announcing the legal network. “Our members are all either former partners in large law firms or in house counsel in major corporations.” he added. “Their knowledge and experience are without equal and the sensitivities they bring to the modern business environment give them the unique ability to service companies from start up through public offering.”

Each firm is separate but client representation is coordinated by one lawyer who ensures that the skills that must be brought to bear for each client are made available. The advantage is that every client is represented directly by partner level lawyers without the sublevels of associate training that often increase cost and impact quality at larger firms. “This, truly, is direct representation by some of the most experienced lawyers in the business without filtering through stages of attorney experience.” Howard said. “Every member of the network has a personal stake in efficient and cost effective representation. We believe this combination of small firm efficiency with big firm skill is a new step in legal service that recognizes current market realities and service needs. Our clients get the best of both worlds.”
