Equinox Business Law Group PLLC | Equinox.Law
Equinox Business Law Group grew from an idea – Business Law the Way It SHOULD Be. Business law should work for the business owner through value, knowledge, and strategy to make smart decisions for their company. This idea requires the lawyer to understand business and entrepreneurship, appreciate the balance of risk-reward for the business, and empathize with the personal, emotional, and financial risk-reward for the business owner.
We began in 2004 as Small Business Legal Services (SBLS), a firm focused on eliminating the barriers that businesses feel when they need a lawyer. The fear of high costs, added complexity, long turn-around times, and not feeling the value-add of competent counsel was the starting point for changing how legal works for businesses. SBLS started with a modern approach to legal services with flat-fee pricing, complimentary consultations, and meaningful check-ins to develop more in-depth, frequent conversations between the lawyer and the business owner. Our clients gave us in-depth insight and trust in their businesses, and we were able to provide business and legal counsel that made sense for the company’s unique needs.
Over time, we found that our collaborative approach with our clients created value, ease, and confidence within our client’s businesses. In response, we launched innovative General Counsel Solutions, offering inclusive strategy & advisory solutions made to fit any business’ needs. We also relaunched under our new brand Equinox Business Law Group. The “equinox” represents the balancing of light and darkness when both hemispheres of the Earth are equally illuminated. Similarly, our clients look to our team to balance the risks and the opportunities they face. We continue to value and celebrate the Equinox and use it to guide the solutions we offer and how we build our team.
