Albuquerque Business Law, P.C.

Albuquerque Business Law, P.C. is an Albuquerque law firm that understands how business law can make your business better.

Albuquerque Business Law, P.C. is tailored to the needs of businesses.  Our focus is a little different that most firms.   We believe that legal services should serve the larger business objectives.

“if the only tool in your toolbox is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail.”
–Baruch’s Observation

While we do have several lovely hammers in our toolbox, we believe in using as many of the other tools in the toolbox before reaching for the hammer!   From governing documents like bylaws or operating agreements, to business planning assistance  that ensures your company is run in a way that actually fits what your business does, we have learned that sound legal documents and business plans keep you focused on running your business, and help you avoid costly, stressful distractions.

If you are a business owner who is willing to invest in a quality legal foundation and proper legal systems, we can help you create the legal framework to avoid the vast majority of disputes with vendors, customers, sub-contractors, and also help you avoid internal disputes that often destroy otherwise sound businesses. If your business revenue depends on ideas, inventions, innovative approaches , marketing, logos, or trade names that you have invested time and money to develop (all of which make up “intellectual property”) then you need to invest in protecting those ideas. This forward-looking focus helps us to help you avoid disputes and distractions.

Most business disputes, regardless of the type, are almost always the result of poorly drafted documents, inadequate communication, or letting problems worsen before finally calling legal counsel.   All of these things detract from focusing on whatever it is your business does. Why wait until expensive problems arise? To modify an old saying, “a few hundred dollars of prevention is worth tens of thousands of dollars of cure.” If it is too late to avoid a dispute, we will handle it with efficiency, confidence, and we will keep you constantly informed, and try to bring it to an end as quickly and cost-effectively as possible. We are an Albuquerque law firm that has represented hundreds of clients in a wide variety of practice areas.  We are lawyers who have started businesses, run businesses, and who also want to see our business clients succeed.

We have jury trial experience, as well as extensive arbitration experience, hearings before various administrative agencies, and hearings before the New Mexico Public Regulation Commission. In addition to this litigation experience, we have successfully achieved clients’ goals in countless informal negotiations, mediation and other creative solutions to avoid litigation in the first place.

Problem Solving Focus

Clients look for lawyers, not because they want a new buddy or because they loved watching Perry Mason episodes growing up, but because they need to solve problems, something we always keep in focus. Our approach to any legal issue is to assess the situation, then lay out the viable options for the client as we see them, give the client a sense of the pros and cons of each option, including the likely costs and timeframes, and thereby arm the client with as much information as possible to make informed decisions. We have a very unique background and wide breadth of life experience, all of which we bring to the practice of law in a way that provides clients with confidence and comfort, often in difficult situations.

Litigation Process Overview

The process of any litigation is not one that is the same for any two cases. A general overview is helpful, however, to understanding the process as it generally occurs, keeping in mind that most cases will vary from this process in one way or another.

The Bottom Line

Perhaps the greatest value our attorneys have is that we approach every legal challenge in the most organized fashion possible. In many instances, legal disputes arise because of poor communication and poor organization. It is more common than not that when we are engaged by a client, we first spend the time necessary to understand all of the issues at play and the personalities involved. We next reach out to the other side (in litigation matters) and attempt to establish a dialogue, no matter how acrimonious the prior history has been. We usually take control of the litigation and suggest a procedure for all of the parties aimed at resolving a dispute in the most efficient and advantageous manner possible. Often we find that others involved in a dispute do not possess the same skills of communication, organization, and an ability to efficiently and effectively find solutions that are acceptable to all the parties and often more beneficial than protracted litigation. With respect to less contentious matters such as intellectual property, business planning, real-estate transactions, and foreclosure, we use the same communication and organization skills to most efficiently understand the client’s goals and turn those goals into competent, well-drafted and effective legal documents that will serve their needs for years to come.
