Corporate Law

Cairncross & Hempelmann enjoys a long-standing reputation in Seattle for excellence in the corporate law arena. The firm has served as my company's general counsel for many years. I highly recommend them to any business seeking general corporate work or SEC counsel. They provide responsive, professional and cost effective legal services. As a lawyer by training and a former law professor, I consider myself a demanding client. Cairncross & Hempelmann has always met my expectations.

Ron Helm Pacific Biomarkers, Inc.

Corporate Law

I have used Cairncross & Hempelmann as corporate counsel for several technology companies over at least 15 years. During that time they have provided services including: Corporate structure and filings Numerous private equity financings Several corporate acquisitions, sales and spinouts Business contracts Legal counsel to the board of directors and/or board committees We have always been pleased with the expertise and service received. They are more cost-effective and more responsive than the Bay Area or New York firms, and they are more tuned in to our specific needs.

Steve Wood Perlego Systems Inc.

Corporate Law

I have used Cairncross & Hempelmann while a venture capitalist, operating a $60 million U.S. early stage fund, as our primary deal counsel and completed over 70 private equity debt and equity financing transactions with the firm. I have also dealt with highly complex senior management and board issues, litigation issues and complex transactions on a global basis with their support. The truly remarkable thing about the firm is that they are ethical, have high integrity and work with me then and now with utmost responsiveness. I have in my career unfortunately encountered some of the top firms in other major cities who do not perform with the integrity and responsiveness of this firm. I frankly can't recommend them highly enough for corporate and securities law matters, particularly in the technology venture arena. I have dealt with major firms in Silicon Valley; Los Angeles; Washington, DC; Houston; Portland, Oregon; and international firms, and Cairncross & Hempelmann stands out from the crowd.
