Responsiveness, Results & Value.

That is our business philosophy in a nutshell and that is precisely why the vast majority of our business clients have been with us for years. The primary objective of our lawyers is to find the best route to success for each of our clients. That route is rarely the same and cannot always be effectively achieved by a “cookie cutter” approach offered all too frequently by many attorneys these days. We take great pride in the cost-effective advice and legal representation we routinely provide to our business clients regarding corporate, employment, succession and strategic issues confronting their operations.

Lee Tieman serves as outside general counsel to many of our business clients, protecting their interests in everyday issues that may arise involving contracts, financing, compliance, government regulations, employment matters and a wide-variety of other types of disputes. By developing a thorough understanding of our client’s business operations, objectives and unique needs, we are able to provide proactive counsel to help each client achieve their personal goals. It is for this reason alone, that we are privileged to have so many long-term clients that form the basis of our business practice by referring their friends, family and colleagues to our law firm.

At Tieman, Spencer & Hicks, individuals and businesses of all types and sizes benefit from our sophisticated, yet practical advice and legal services on a local, regional and national level.  The role our attorneys serve with your business is tailored to your specific needs. For some clients, we serve as general counsel, actively involved in the regular operations of their company.  For others, we are more project-specific, taking the lead in negotiating a particular transaction or handling a lawsuit. Still for other clients, our involvement may primarily be limited to the initial organization of the company (and sending an annual Christmas card).

When you work with our firm, you will quickly notice our close-knit team of experienced professionals who are focused on cost-effective and efficient legal representation.  Our clients appreciate that we are experienced and highly qualified in handling virtually every type of legal issue their business may face and rarely need to refer clients to another law firm.   Tieman, Spencer & Hicks is large enough to specialize in providing superior legal services in a wide variety of business areas, yet small enough to maintain personal relationships with each of our clients.  However, if certain specialized representation is needed outside our areas of practice, you can rest assured that we will do everything necessary to utilize our vast networking amongst our peers to make sure that outside co-counsel is retained to sufficiently protect your vital interests.

At TS&H, we create and utilize a wide variety of business structures depending on each client’s particular needs.  As part of our comprehensive services, we draft all requisite paperwork, make all necessary governmental filings, prepare all governing documents and provide each client with a “corporate book” containing all relevant papers and an instructional letter relating to their newly created business entity.  Such entities include:

  • Corporations
    • C-Corps and S-Corps
  • Limited Liability Companies (LLC’s)
    • Single Member and Multi-Member
    • Member managed and Manager managed
  • Professional Corporations (PC’s)
