We are a boutique law firm that creates tailored solutions to complicated problems.
As sophisticated practitioners of intellectual property, energy, and environmental law, we have the experience necessary to craft solutions in a courtroom, a committee room, or a conference room. We ably navigate the intersections of business and government, whether that involves obtaining or defending a copyright or trademark registration or demystifying compliance with an environmental regulation.
Rivenoak Law takes its name from a method of woodworking that produced especially strong and long-lasting results, but required an experienced and talented individual focused on cutting with the grain. We approach practicing law the same way — our job is to craft good solutions that reflect the grain of both the law and the way our clients work. We have advised clients in a wide range of industries including automotive, manufacturing, internet and e-commerce, energy, chemical, health care, broadcasting and entertainment, banking and finance, telecommunications and media, fine and performing arts, and consumer goods. Our clients range from individuals and start-up entrepreneurs to large national and international corporations. They have two things in common: a thorny problem that is getting in the way of their success, and a desire to find a lawyer who can solve it while feeling like a member of their team.
Our attorneys are professionals who are regularly called upon to ply their craft in tricky situations, as their resumes show. Our partners have all held gubernatorial appointments and federal clerkships. They have all received leadership awards and been named “rising stars” or “top lawyers." They lead non-profit boards and are asked to teach students and speak on their areas of law. Our attorneys are committed to the success of their clients and their communities, and when they decide to do something, they get results.
