About Us

Attorneys. Partners. Peers.

At McGovern Law, our philosophy is simple: deliver experienced, practical legal counsel, efficiently and effectively, while keeping ourselves accessible and responsive to our clients. Our attorneys bring a unique set of skills and experience to the practice of law because not only have we counseled countless startups, established businesses, investors, and funds, but each of us has also been involved first-hand in starting and running startups and other businesses. As a result, we understand the impact legal counsel and representation has on the way your business operates and succeeds because we’ve been there ourselves. We understand how unpredictable professional expenses can strain your bottom line and wreak havoc on your budget because we’ve dealt with it first-hand. We understand the critical importance of working closely with you and your investors and partners because we’ve been there.

We aim to redefine the way firms and attorneys provide legal counsel to startups and established businesses, funds and venture capitalists, investors, real estate developers, and industry professionals. Our goal is to provide a comprehensive, no-nonsense, one-stop shop solution for our clients.
