Year 1

This week marks the one-year anniversary of the firm.  Charting our own path as lawyers and entrepreneurs has been one of the most rewarding experiences in our careers and our lives.  There are too many thoughts about Year 1 to put into this post, but one thing stands out: we wouldn't have gotten here without our clients.  To the 50+ clients that we've served in Year 1, thanks for giving us the opportunity to join you in chasing ambitions.

SWERVE Fitness
30 W 18th Street (Flatiron studio)
Buy Rides

A favorite in the boutique fitness scene, SWERVE brings team competition to indoor cycling.  Expect 45 minutes of fun, sweat, teamwork, and tunes.  We'll be riding on the red team.

You'll need to sign up online at the links provided for ticketed events.  Attendance is at your own cost and subject to limited availability.  No need to RSVP to us for any of these events, but let us know if you'd like to be kept in the loop on any last-minute scheduling changes.  Also, keep in mind that these events are not firm-hosted or sponsored events, so we have no control over availability, pricing or any other matters associated with these events.  This is just our attempt at cultivating community by giving us all a chance to connect outside of the office.

About our Newsletter

We decided to launch a weekly newsletter with the simple goal of cultivating community.  Our newsletter covers (1) content relating to the startup industry that we liked from the previous week, giving you something to read, listen to, and watch; (2) content we created during the previous week, keeping you up to date on news and insight from our team; and (3) events and activities we plan to host or attend in the upcoming week, providing our community of clients, partners, and friends an opportunity to share, support, and connect with each other.
