Cowden Humphrey provides value-added legal services to business enterprises at all stages of development, from global enterprises to entrepreneurial start-ups. Our attorneys represent and advise clients on a broad array of legal matters, including corporate law and governance, corporate finance, intellectual property, employment law, taxation, employee benefits, mergers and acquisitions, and litigation. Our experience counseling on a wide range of issues spanning a variety of industries has given us an exceptional understanding of our clients' business environments, uniquely positioning us to provide the most responsive, efficient, and effective legal solutions available.



We're business people ourselves. Many of our partners have owned and operated their own businesses, so we've sat in your chair as the business owner. We've personally faced and dealt with the same business challenges and opportunities that you face every day. We've also worked with and advised many entrepreneurial clients. We know how to communicate with the owners and managers of growing businesses so they're more comfortable. Rather than simply offering legal advice (or even legal solutions), we focus on working with you to navigate your business challenges toward achieving your business goals.

How do we add value to you and your business?

  • We work with you as your strategic general counsel. Your primary contact is an attorney with significant legal and business experience who is also adept at working with entrepreneurial clients. His or her job is to ensure that everything we do serves your immediate and long-term legal and business goals.
  • We recruit and hire lawyers with business training and experience, not just legal experience.
  • We offer fee options suited to the needs of your business, including retainer arrangements that let you know (up front) the amount of your investment in your legal counsel and allow you to work with your counsel without the billing clock ticking in your ear, creating a true collaborative working environment.
  • We know what we don't know, and we'll refer you to proven outside specialists when it best serves your need. For example, we are not patent attorneys, but know from experience where your patent needs will be best served. We are your resource for the advice and services you need for your business.

In short, we help businesses grow by providing you with the advice, counsel, direction, ideas, and guidance you need to achieve your short and long-term goals.
