Philosophy

The Naggiar Law Firm is a law firm that is focused on providing high-quality legal assistance to startups, small- & medium-sized businesses, and investors. We believe in using our training to empower people who are building, growing and investing in great companies. Our goal is to help entrepreneurs and business owners create entities, structures and contractual arrangements that reduce their risks, protect their work, maximize their profits, recruit and retain great team members, develop wise compensation packages, raise funds, and sell and acquire assets necessary to power their companies’ growth.

Business law isn’t just a bunch of contract templates that you can find online — it consists of conscious thought and planning about how companies should organize themselves, develop governance structures and design relationships with their owners, employees, vendors, customers, and employees, all to maximize their chances of success. We’ve done that thinking and planning for other companies and, if you’ve got a great company, we’d love to apply it to help you.
