Fractional General Counsel & 
Business and Corporate Representation



25 Years Of Unraveling The Most Complicated Knots

Leveraging decades of legal and business experience, The Gordian Knot offers business and corporate clients efficient, cost-effective access to services typically associated with larger traditional law firms.


The Gordian Knot Commitment


Your Needs Should Drive the Representation.

At The Gordian Knot, the client comes first. Always. The Gordian Knot can represent you independently or partner with your existing counsel. The Gordian Knot never interferes with your existing counsel relationships.


Your Lawyer Should Be a Skilled Storyteller.

There is a story behind every transaction – your story. We simply don't live in a one size fits all world. The Gordian Knot leverages its business and financial services experience to tell your story in a way your lender or transaction partner will understand.


Your Lawyer Should Work for You. You Shouldn't Work for Your Lawyer.

The Gordian Knot pursues a business-centric, not a lawyer-centric, approach to your transaction. After all, its your deal – not ours. The tail should never wag the dog.


You Shouldn't Pay for Training Junior Lawyers or Fancy Offices.

As our billing rates reflect, The Gordian Knot doesn't hire associates or rent expensive office space. Use the savings on legal fees to grow your business.
