We’ve been in your shoes

The team at Media Law Group has started and run a number of businesses. This allows us to bring a real-world approach to helping your business get off the ground and flourish. It also means that we understand the practical implications of the advice we offer.

We’re in it with you for the long haul

We offer more than a quick in and out engagement. Our goal is to fuel your long-term growth plan. This means we are part of the consequences of the work we take on together.

We take your success seriously

We put together a comprehensive execution plan that forces us to look at your new business strategically. We start from the position of wanting to know what the result is that you are looking for and we work back from there. With Media Law Group, there are no cookie-cutter solutions because we invest the time in understanding your business from the inside out.

We take away the fear-factor

The bottom line is, we work to solve problems and create opportunities so you can focus on your passion. And we do it in a straight-forward, everyday language kind of way. We take the time to listen to you. As a deal-making firm, we also give you the straight talk which means we will tell you when we think you could go down a better path.

We are thankful to all the entrepreneurs we work with on Upcounsel for their kinds words.

“I spoke with Lara for a startup business consultation and was very impressed with her knowledge and her friendly conversational delivery. Lara brought to light things I didn’t even consider.”

“Lara has been such a great asset & resource for me. I’m incredibly thankful for her knowledge & insights.”

“Lara is fabulous – she clearly cares about her clients and helped give me clear direction in a short amount of time.”

“Lara responded quickly, knowledgeably, and spoke to me like a human being. So appreciated!”
