“Working with new companies can be a much more collaborative and creative process than working with older, more established firms,” comments Jackie. “It’s exciting for us, as we have to come up with creative solutions where the law is not extremely clear and there is no settled range of approaches. But Blakes has made a commitment to innovative companies – we understand their mindset and provide an environment for their success and growth. It’s very unpredictable, and also very rewarding, to work with companies who may be standing at the precipice of greatness.”
