Staying Current in a Changing World

From the economy over which we have little control to our local markets in which we influence, change is inevitable.  Suppliers, contractors and employees change.  Technology, processes and environments change.  Accordingly, this firm must also change.  Here we highlight our beginnings and the intelligent design for our future.  

Legal Concept for Hampton Roads

The Law Firm of Robert Nutt, MBA, JD serves not only in litigation but also in business advisory (pro-actively avoiding conflict) on subjects such as: business formation, business ownership, employment law, business contracts and corporate transactions. We work with entrepreneurial law; act as registered agents, both at company formation and throughout the lifecycle of an organization; and, offer many types of business and legal advice. We advise companies in numerous areas of business and commercial law. We begin at the formation stages with choice of entity (Sole Proprietor, Partnership, LLC, S-Corporation, C-Corporation, Non-Stock Corporation). We draft essential agreements (Non-Compete, Non-Disclose, Non-Solicitation, Independent Contractor, Hourly Employee, Salaried Employee, Joint Venture, Partnership, Operating, Shareholder, Buy/Sell, Asset Sale, Stock Sale, Limited Release, General Release, Settlement, etc.) We serve the Virginia market, focusing on the Southside Hampton Roads cities of: Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth and Suffolk.

Founding Attorney, Robert Nutt, practiced management consulting for over 15-years before attending law-school.  His employers included KPMG, Booz•Allen & Hamilton, META Group (now part of Gartner Group) and other leaders in strategy, business and technology.  His clients included: American Express, FedEx, Prudential, Sprint, United Rentals, Xerox and the United States Navy.  His responsibilities progressed from Consultant and Senior Consultant to Project Leader and Regional Manager to Director and Senior Vice President.  His background epitomizes business acumen with proven success.  From this experience, he envisioned a Law Firm different from traditional models.  

A Business Law Firm should be pro-active with clients to save them money, providing timely advice before problems become expensive.  

A Business Law Firm should preserve long-term relationships of clients with suppliers, customers, contractors and employees.  Litigation should follow negotiation in the same way military action follows diplomacy.  

A Business Law Firm should consistently focus on the needs of business and not practice conflicting areas of law such as divorce and criminal defense representation.  Business is about sustainable growth and integrity not destruction of relationships and getting away with inherently wrong actions.  

The Law Firm of Robert Nutt, MBA, JD is a pro-active, relationship-oriented firm that focuses on profitable, sustainable growth of clients through quality representation of business and legal needs.

A Business Law Firm helps the community; and, a Business Attorney is a valued member of Client Leadership Teams.
