Exceeding the standard is our standard.

About Us


Overwhelm with professional excellence and efficiency.

Whether in a court case or business transaction, a client is only represented effectively when the judge, jury, or transactional counterparty is firmly convinced of the expertise and competence of that client’s legal representation. A position that is well thought-out, commercially reasonable and grounded in fact and law is difficult to dispute.

This commitment to excellence – delivered at a reasonable cost – was the mission of MSF’s founding partners. The firm’s unwavering dedication to that mission has enabled MSF to grow to a 70-lawyer business-law powerhouse, respected by the bar and judiciary alike.

MSF is a business run by businessmen and women. We understand entrepreneurship because we are entrepreneurs. We have built our firm by creating a collegial and enjoyable work environment, while maintaining an unflagging commitment to excellence. Our practical business approach to solving problems has enabled us to build a community of clients spanning all walks of business.

The interconnectedness of our client networks and the firm’s unparalleled ability to win cases, close deals, and build client businesses is a natural extension of our deep understanding of how businesses launch, operate, and flourish. MSF’s own history is proof that we understand how to run a thriving business, and we put those skills to work for our clients every day.
