Fathom Law Is Here

By December 20, 2013Business, Legal, News, Technology

We are excited and proud to officially launch Fathom Law.  As experienced business and technology lawyers specializing in the representation of emerging and growth companies, we recognized that the large law firm model was increasingly misaligned with the needs of our clients.  While all law firms tout their excellence, innovation and value proposition for clients, the reality is that the cost structure, IT systems and lowest common denominator procedures of the largest firms just don’t serve the emerging growth market particularly well.

Our mission at Fathom Law was simple – to build a law firm that would allow us to be as effective and efficient as possible, in full alignment with our clients.  We understand technology and use it to enable seamless communication, collaboration and sharing, both internally and externally.  While we are not another “virtual firm” (we believe in community, personal relationships and real world connections, and they require bricks and mortar!), we do maintain significantly lower overhead per lawyer than most large firms, which allows us to invest in the best tools and technology, and keep our fee structures flexible and value-based.  We have employed a “multi-sourcing” strategy, building a partner network of the best speciality legal and non-legal service providers, which allows us to provide a range of expertise and services that can match the largest firms, without the enormous carrying cost associated with a global platform.

Our people are all ex-big firm partners and senior lawyers, with extensive legal and business experience. In addition to our legal expertise, we have built and sold technology companies, we are active investors, and are frequent speakers and panelists at industry events.  Our attorneys are SuperLawyers, Rising Stars and recipients of many other awards and recognitions. But, mostly, we are good lawyers and good people who genuinely like working with our clients and take pride of ownership in our clients’ success.

Thanks for welcoming Fathom Law into the Bay Area legal and tech communities.  We look forward to telling you more about us and learning about you.

Happy Holidays!
