Among business people, lawyers have earned a reputation as ungrounded problem spotters who are often viewed as part of the business problem instead of part of the solution. Against those broad perceptions of our industry, Gesmer Updegrove takes pride in being, well, un-lawyer-like. Clients say we think and act like entrepreneurs. We see the business context of the law. We aim to help clients make and implement smart decisions and achieve optimal outcomes with an approach that makes the most business sense.
