Why Us

West Hill provides proactive and practical legal advice to facilitate smart business decision-making at IP-focused companies. From startups to established businesses, West Hill will help you navigate all things legal.

Expertise

West Hill Attorneys have worked for large law firms or as in-house counsel and have extensive experience in their practice areas.  This background allows us to spot legal issues before they arise and provide the context you need to make smart business decisions.

IP-Focused

Business lawyers are a dime a dozen. It’s not hard to find a lawyer who will set up your company, draft an agreement, or review an NDA. West Hill, however, provides all of its services through the lens of protecting and maximizing the value of your intellectual property. With deep knowledge in technology-focused industries (and the issues that arise during due diligence) our attorneys put you on the path to a successful exit.

Simple and straightforward legal advice

West Hill simplifies complex legal issues to help you understand risks and protect your business. West Hill attorneys draft easy to understand agreements that protect your key business interests. By reducing jargon and staying laser-focused on your business goals, we help clients grow their businesses with  confidence.

Reasonable Rates

West Hill is not a virtual law firm, but our unique business model means that we don’t have the overhead of traditional large firms. Our approach to pricing is transparent and provides the peace of mind that you won’t receive undecipherable or unexpected invoices for legal services. There are no automatic ¼ hour billing entries every time we think about your matter. Instead, we are focused on creating real value for your business with every entry on an invoice. Refreshing, don’t you think?

A Unique Approach

West Hill attorneys love what they do and are passionate about helping entrepreneurs and growth oriented businesses succeed. West Hill attorneys take the time to get to know our client’s business, industry and goals. We promptly field questions, celebrate successes and, over time, become a member of your team. Our theory is that happy lawyers = happy clients. We honestly love what we do and our clients report that they actually enjoy speaking with us. Imagine that!

Next, a bit about what we don’t do . . .

If you are looking for a law firm that will take you to the ball game, get you an incredible tee time, or wine and dine you at the hottest new restaurant, you are in the wrong place. We are lawyers, not cruise directors. We put your legal services budget to work with reasonable fees for the highest quality services, not box seats and country club memberships. We like it that way; we think you will too.
