This page provides answers to common questions prospective clients may ask. Additional information is available on our website. In particular, please visit our About, Industries, and pages and contact us if you would like more information.
HOW DO I KNOW IF GAMMA LAW IS THE RIGHT FIRM FOR MY COMPANY?
We work with select companies and founders in our focused industry sectors and provide these clients with exceptional, value-added legal support. Our clients range from first-time founders to multinational corporations. However, because of our deep industry expertise, experienced professionals, and high level of client engagement, we are not the best match for all potential clients. If budget is a principal concern or your legal needs are relatively straightforward, you may find that another firm would be a better fit. If you are interested in exploring a possible partnership, please begin by completing our contact form and include basic information about your legal needs (do not include confidential information). If it appears that there may be an opportunity to work together, we will get back to you to schedule a call. This free initial consultation will not address specific information concerning your project, but it will help us and you determine if we should proceed to forming an attorney-client relationship.
HOW MUCH WILL IT COST, AND HOW ARE FEES STRUCTURED?
There is no charge for the initial consultation. Should we proceed to enter into an engagement letter, we will discuss and agree with you in advance concerning billing for your project. This may take the form of a fixed-fee per-project basis, a monthly retainer, or hourly rates. Our billing practices are transparent, and we have rarely experienced issues with invoices. Payment may be made online, and we accept credit cards, wire transfers, ACH, e-checks, and physical checks. We also accept payment in certain crypto stablecoins.
WHO WILL HANDLE MY COMPANY’S PROJECTS?
Gamma Law attorneys are experienced in a broad range of legal matters within our focused industry sectors, including corporate matters such as company formation, financing, and M&A, intellectual property and licensing. A single partner-level attorney will be designated to oversee all of your matters, and work will be allocated among members of our team based on experience level relating to your particular projects and in a manner that we believe, based on experience, will provide you with the most cost-effective support.
HOW WILL I KNOW THE STATUS OF MY PROJECTS?
In accordance with the Gamma Law 100% Commitment, we will ensure that you are promptly and fully informed of developments relevant to your projects, considering your communication preferences and the relative significance of matters that come up. In addition, we invite you to call, e-mail, or text your Gamma Law attorney at any time if you would like an update or have a question. We return calls and messages within two hours during business hours, and as soon as reasonably possible outside of business hours.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN BUSINESS?
Managing Partner David Hoppe and certain other senior lawyers have practiced for three decades, or nearly so, with large international law firms and in-house at cutting-edge companies. Gamma Law was founded in 2003 as one of the first law firms focused on the cutting-edge media/tech sectors that we support.
WHAT ARE YOUR BUSINESS HOURS?
Our lawyers are located in several time zones, and our working hours are not limited to traditional business hours.
DO YOU OFFER JAPANESE LANGUAGE SERVICES?
Gamma Law has an active practice supporting Japanese companies conducting business in the United States as well as international companies entering the Japanese market. Many of our professionals are bilingual in Japanese and English. Many of our lawyers have managed international transactions throughout their careers, and are familiar with the unique challenges that come with a cross-border practice.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM YOU?
We hold ourselves to the highest standards of client experience, quality of service, and ethics. We pride ourselves in providing proactive, value-added support to clients that goes beyond completing legal assignments. We actively support clients’ efforts to push the boundaries of what is possible and ultimately accomplish their international business objectives. We support innovation developed by established and high-growth digital media and technology businesses that push the boundaries of progress for the enrichment of people all over the world.
Relationships are the heart and the drive of Gamma Law. Our work enables people from different regions and cultures to work and succeed in harmony together.
