Kenneth Obel / goodcounsel
goodcounsel is a law practice of innovators for innovators. In a tradition-bound profession, we stand out by continuously seeking ways to deliver efficient, inventive, technology-enabled legal counsel to our entrepreneurial clients.
We represent privately-held companies of all sizes, from fledgling startups to established, profitable operating businesses. We also serve individuals occupying various roles across a variety of situations: from company co-founders starting a business, to investors funding one, to an executive wishing to arrange a smooth exit.
A lawyer by training and an innovator by temperament, goodcounsel’s principal, Ken Obel, came to understand the needs of growing businesses in the most direct way possible: by starting one himself. Having experienced the thrills and challenges of being an entrepreneur, and working in business and legal roles at other entrepreneurs’ companies for a decade after exiting his own startup, Ken developed a firsthand perspective and some strong opinions about how legal services could be delivered in a way that better fits the needs of the new enterprise.
goodcounsel’s investments in efficiency mean that for most matters, we prefer to handle client work on a fixed-fee basis, charging for the value of what we deliver instead of the time it takes us to deliver. We spend time up front to understand a prospective client’s requirements in detail, and then we commit to a price.
We look forward to learning how we can help your business.
