“... The business lawyer should be as enterprising as her or his clients, and view the attorney-client relationship as collaborative and value-added, not cost-centric.”~Thaddeus Wojcik
I am a business lawyer for small businesses, entrepreneurs, and investors. After years practicing under the monolithic New York City big-firm model, I saw that the "Big Law" approach to working with small-business clients and charging big-client fees just did not serve so many of them. So, in 2010, I launched WLF to protect the interests of small businesses, startups, and non-institutional investors in a way they can understand and feel good about, at a cost they can live with.
Businesses today operate on shifting legal, technology, and financial landscapes. Disruptions to outmoded ways occur with increasing frequency. To protect and represent the interests of business clients, the modern business lawyer must be nimble, flexible, efficient. WLF's approach, therefore, is intended to add value. To provide an "ROI" on the client's investment in legal fees. To be cooperative and alliance-based. To offer innovative solutions to problems, not adhere rigidly to passé traditions of a once stodgy profession.

Licensed as a New York lawyer and California lawyer, and having a footprint in Manhattan and in Los Angeles and Ventura Counties in CA, I keep my fingers on the pulse of two of the most important legal and finance markets in the country.

WLF endeavors to be sustainable and cost-efficient, as well as safe and health conscious. Efforts include electronic payment policy, paperless documents, recycled paper products (when paper is needed), digital signatures, overhead efficiency, and mindful travel practices, and remote meetings by Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, Skype, WhatsApp, FaceTime, Signal, Facebook video chat and, soon, Facebook Portal.
For business owners, sole proprietors, and budding entrepreneurs not quite ready to formally retain a business attorney, I am working on an online document e-Store. It will include a library of simple, common business documents. Some will be downloadable for free, and others available for purchase. They will be fillable contract templates.
