As the founder and CEO of Jaburg Wilk for the past 30 years, Gary has been instrumental in growing the firm from two attorneys to 34 attorneys and 75 employees. He is not only a business attorney but also a business owner, actively working in his business.
Having represented hundreds of entrepreneurs and businesses, he understands both the legal and business issues that they encounter. Many entrepreneurs only contact their attorney when they have a problem. It could be a contract dispute with a customer or supplier; an employment related issue with one of their employees; or a conflict with a partner or shareholder. Often the conflict is a result of one or both of the parties having underlying financial difficulty and the entrepreneur is looking for a time and cost efficient way to resolve it. Gary’s expertise rests in combining the facts, with the law and assessing the emotions/human aspects of the situation. He then develops strategies and tactics that maximize the business owner’s probability of obtaining the desired result.
In representing clients in transactional matters, Gary has the entrepreneurial mindset to evaluate risk/reward tradeoffs in the negotiating process, and not fall into the usual attorney mindset of only seeing the risks. In short, Gary’s expertise is in providing business and entrepreneurial clients with both common sense business and strategic legal advice to create practical, cost effective solutions.
