During the pandemic response, Lakelaw remains fully operational with our lawyers and staff working both at the office and from home. We are consulting with our clients daily, negotiating and executing transactions, and counseling businesses who are formulating a plan for survival in the future. We are also participating in virtual court proceedings to the extent the same are conducted.
Lakelaw’s lawyers have represented clients through commercial and business transactions for decades. Transactional work, unlike other areas of law practice, requires that attorneys maximize, within the efficiencies of the transaction, the agreed solutions to problems that do not yet and may never exist. Once you factor in that the terms of the deal need to be negotiated with other persons, the process is a form of art.
The core of American business is contract law. Contract law is about consensual undertakings. However, in these days, some societal forces, legislation, and even some lines of court decisions are all designed to force people, consumers and businesses alike, into obligations that they did not voluntarily undertake and are depriving them of opportunities and rights that were previously available.
We are fighting to preserve the freedom of contract law in America. We believe in the freedom of contract and strive to deliver negotiated transactions that fulfill your needs in an efficient manner.
