About Us

Harpst-Ross LTD - About Us

Harpst Ross represents business people. Our clients get the benefit of our partners’ large firm and in-house corporate experience, with the value of a small firm delivery system that allows us to focus on our clients’ business exclusively.  Most lawyers have never been in business, or worked in the industries they represent.  We have.  We know what it’s like to make a payroll, to manage employees, negotiate a contract, defend against competition, and collect money that is owed.  We understand the business side of the legal system, and we will give you the best representation you can get anywhere.

Each member of Harpst Ross’ legal team has a core area of practice, supported by specialized paralegals who each have 20 years or more of experience. Our collaborative system of client service means you will get the best lawyer for your specific legal need.  We don’t compete on price so don’t ask.  We make arrangements with each client to staff and service each matter in the best way for the client to deliver the highest value to the client.  Our clients always know who is accountable to them for the work, the fees, and the results.

Our strength comes from our clients. We learn their business so we know how to best help them with the legal challenges they face.  Our objective with each client is to continually represent them in every aspect of their business – not just once, but forever.  By learning your business, we can give you faster answers with better information, which leads to more informed choices and a lower total legal cost over time.  Our clients trust us, because we trust them.  Almost all of our business comes from the long-standing clients we have been privileged to represent, and those colleagues they refer to us.

If you are looking for a new business lawyer, we encourage you to talk with some of our clients about their experiences working with us. Most people know who they are.  If you are not familiar with us, please look over our individual lawyer profiles and feel free to call or e-mail any one of our lawyers for more information about what we do and how we might be of service to you and your business.
