what we do best
Axia Law was built to serve as your corporate counsel. In a traditional sense, we strive to meet your legal needs by structuring transactions, and recognizing risk. We’ve designed our firm to be proactive, not reactive. We see our attorneys as an extension of your business. Our goal is to understand the nuances surrounding your industry, customers, and employees to help you achieve your company’s growth and vision.
The acquisition of a business presents many complicated legal issues. Experienced counsel can make sure that these issues are navigated properly via thorough diligence and strategic negotiation. Our goal is to facilitate and structure your transaction in a manner that protects our clients from risk and exposure, without unnecessary time or expense. The experience and knowledge we bring to each acquisition, allows Axia Law to do both.
We understand that time is of essence. We also understand the necessity of obtaining the appropriate clearances, business licenses, and zoning approvals as early as possible. Our goal is the same as yours—to open your business as soon as possible. Our knowledge and history with local and state administrative and regulatory bodies has assisted countless businesses navigate the red tape.
Axia Law’s Real Estate, Land Use, and Zoning practice groups focus on a wide range of deals. Our attorneys have experience with commercial, industrial, and multifamily property issues, to zoning amendments and special use permits, and even with helping you buy your next home. Our typical clients are owners, investors, developers, lenders, and receivers. Our focus is in getting the deal to the finish line quickly and with a cost effective mindset, all while advocating and promoting the best interests of our clients.
Chicago is one of the country’s most competitive and fast paced commercial and retail leasing markets. Whether initially negotiating the terms of a lease or considering exit strategies to terminate a lease, we, at Axia Law, are able to help. Most leases and contracts contain antiquated, overbearing language, which most often does not serve the best interest of both parties. By gaining insight into your objectives, we are able to focus the lease negotiation on what matters most to you.
Raising capital for a quickly growing business is exciting, exhausting and complicated. We’ve counseled some of Chicago’s fastest growing companies through their early and mid-stage growth stage financing rounds. We work with founders to balance the goals of founder equity preservation, balanced growth, and strategic partnerships. Our experience as an active investor through our partnerships with Breakpoint Ventures and The Cultivator give our attorneys unique perspective and ultimately, great strategic value to clients.
