About the Calkins Law Firm

The Calkins Law Firm, Ltd. (“Calkins Law Firm”) is a premier boutique law firm that specializes in business law and focuses on business transactions and business disputes. Although we are focused on the Ohio and New York Markets, we have extensive international law experience.

We are committed to providing genuine expertise in business law advice, counsel and representation for our clients.

We are also deeply committed to excellence in client service.  And as a new model law firm that makes full use of technology and minimizes unnecessary overhead and other wasteful spending, we are extraordinarily cost effective when compared to comparable old-style law firms.

All of our attorneys are well educated, top rated and highly experienced, which differentiates us from most other law firms and enhances our ability to provide excellence in business law and in client service cost effectively.

We refer to our new model as value added business law. It’s not complicated but is very new and different for a law firm, and it delights our clients. Our clients see the difference!

At Calkins Law Firm, our team of legal experts have broad backgrounds in business law. Our service is comprehensive, covering every type of legal matter pertaining to client businesses. And we are happy to represent clients of all sorts, whether from a defense or prosecutorial perspective.

Working together, as a group, we regularly review matters to ensure that every client and case are being well cared for. Our team embraces technology in their practice, and we utilize a variety of communication methods to efficiently handle cases. This allows us to be responsive and act quickly on client requests.

Clients Come First

At Calkins Law Firm we are wholeheartedly committed to our clients. Providing genuine and reliable expertise in business law advice, counsel, and representation is our greatest honor.

To that end we’re driven to stay up-to-date and use our hard-earned knowledge to support and further client causes.

Technology Sets Us Apart

Calkins Law Firm is a new age, virtual law firm. Since our very beginnings we have made full use of technology, minimizing unnecessary overhead. Instead of wasteful spending, we firmly believe in delivering expert advice and high-quality client service while keeping costs to a minimum.

Our modern take on the traditional law firm is what we refer to as “value-added business law,” and our clients love us for it. The legal team also appreciates the freedom of working virtually. Because we’ve been at this work long before it became the norm, we’ve had time to perfect our approach. So we can easily gather the needed resources to effectively handle any business law case, even at a distance.
