Every professional choice I make has a direct impact on the relationship with my clients. Those relationships mean everything to me and to the success of my practice. My commitment is that I will listen carefully and work to help grow their businesses by leveraging the knowledge I’ve gained over 20 years of experience practicing law. In addition, I will use valuable business knowledge, which really sank in when I opened Aimee B. Davis Law P.C.
After listening and giving careful consideration to the business concerns of my clients and their counterparties, Aimee B. Davis Law P.C. seeks straight-forward, simple solutions to complex legal and business issues. Since opening my own practice, I am focused more than ever on pleasing my clients and maintaining good relationships with them.
Clients want their deals done as quickly and efficiently as possible. They prefer to avoid wrangling over legal verbiage, which increases transaction costs, unless the issue at hand has a significant economic consequence or practical business impact on the deal. Not every contract and not every issue within a contract is worth sustaining a protracted negotiation.
One of the most valuable lessons I learned in BIG LAW is that when the business people are ready to close a deal, regardless of the open legal issues, I acknowledge my role as a facilitator, and strive to avoid being an obstacle in getting the deal done. At a certain point, after framing the assumption of risk issues, the lawyer should step down and recognize that sometimes you can’t win every point.
