A client-centered practice for small businesses and entrepreneurs
The practice of law is broken. Smart, talented lawyers often work day and night to support fancy offices and partner’s income. Clients know they are paying for the polished conference rooms and designer suits, while associates are missing birthdays and dance recitals to pay the rent and support lifestyles of other lawyers. None of these expenses make the world a better place for clients or lawyers.
Blackgarden Law (BGL) was founded to make the experience of law better for clients and lawyers. Our offices are simple but functional. By keeping our overhead modest our rates can remain reasonable but sustainable. Furthermore, we are focused on a few core areas of business law, which helps us provide predictable and expert counsel. Our practice is built on a foundation of strong relationships with clients.
BGL is a boutique trademark, corporate and securities firm with offices in Albuquerque and Phoenix. We work with closely held businesses of every type. While our firm has particular depth in several areas (craft beer and beverages, technology startups and emerging growth companies) we are truly experts in understanding the needs of each client and how they can best navigate their unique market challenges. No matter your stage, we can help you start, finance, grow and protect your dream.
