One of the most common frustrations that businesses have with their lawyers is that the lawyers don’t understand their business. Or that lawyers usually don’t understand the risks, the fears, the emotions, the personalities, the dynamics and the politics of business in general. But Herrick is different.
We’re business people ourselves. Herrick founded, raised the capital for (including investing our own money), formed and became general counsel to two banks, the 10th largest SBIC lender in the U.S., a specialty lender in the health care industry, and several companies engaged in activities ranging from coffee to biotech to real estate. Sure, plenty of our lawyers have been in-house counsel as well, but a lot of firms can boast that. Not many can say that they created their own businesses, and still own and manage a few.
