Corporate Acquisition Counsel

“I engaged Ben Calkins as our lead attorney when acquiring the Automotive Components Remanufacturing Division from TRW. This was an exceptionally involved acquisition. Throughout this tedious, tenuous, and at times frustrating ordeal he remained cool, calm and a decisive asset. He is adroit, technically astute, and professional in every instance.”

Roy

Enjoyed the Process

“I really enjoyed the process of using this firm. They explained the whole process and were very responsive to any questions I had.”

Westley

Satisfied Client

“Ben Calkins represented our firm with a very difficult business asset purchase. The seller was not motivated, difficult to work with and changed the agreement quite a few times adding two or three extra months to close the deal. Ben remained calm but more important kept me calm and balanced throughout the entire process. I will enlist Ben’s help for our next acquisition.”

Ken

Highly Recommended for New Business Owners

“I would highly recommend Ben Calkins to anyone starting their own business. I knew it was important to have my business set up properly from a legal perspective, but I wasn’t sure where to start. Ben is clearly knowledgeable and experienced with law, but beyond that you can tell he is passionate about business and entrepreneurs. He took a genuine interest in setting up my business for success, providing quality legal expertise at an affordable price.”

Katy

Ben Calkins Authors Exceptional Agreements

“Some lawyers just understand the nuances of employment and partnership agreements. I trust Ben Calkins to provide exceptional contract agreements, and I have worked with his firm on multiple occasions to safeguard my assets and intellectual property in complex ventures. I continue to recommend and turn to Mr. Calkins for both entrepreneurial and legal counsel. He sets the bar for how more lawyers should practice law… truly for the good of all.”

David

CLF vs Specialty and Prominent Old Style Law Firms

“I was sued by a former employer a year ago and engaged a prominent old style law firm to defend me. Was very frustrated by the cost of the old style law firm and the poor client service and the overall lack of progress towards a resolution. Was referred to Calkins Law Firm by a neighbor and retained CLF to defend me. CLF’s team has supplied genuine expertise, excellence in client service and at relatively affordable cost. CLF has been attentive and aggressive and has the case headed in the right direction.”

David

I Strongly Recommend this Firm

“I recommend Calkins Law Firm to any business person in need of excellent business counsel and can say, after working with Ben and members of his team, that they provide genuine expertise, excellent client service, and cost-effective representation for their clients.”

Al

Excellent Business and Real Estate Attorney

“I live in Pennsylvania, and I needed to retain an Ohio lawyer to assist with my Ohio real estate transactions. I chose Calkins Law Form because of its top rating, well educated and highly experienced business attorneys. Both of our transactions closed timely and on favorable terms. I would highly recommend Ben Calkins and the Calkins Law Firm. I look forward to using them again for our Ohio business attorney needs.”

Anthony

An Entrepreneur’s Attorney

“We use Ben for contracts because he understands our business needs quickly. Ben has helped us with countless mergers, acquisitions, and formation of either “C” corporations or limited liability companies. Ben “specializes in small businesses”, and forms a close working relationship with our management team.”

Terry

Landlord Dispute

“Ben was very engaging and attentive to a dispute we were having with our commercial landlord. In the end, Ben was very effective and insightful for us, and we were glad to chosen him. We would recommend him without hesitation.”

John

Corporate Business & Contract Issues

“Ben’s acumen in both legal and business issues is always on point and his calm, professional demeanor, even when his clients might be a bit frazzled over some issue, is a definite plus. I highly recommend Ben as legal counsel to help with any business transaction.”

Corporate Business & Contract Issues

I would highly recommend Ben Calkins to anyone starting their own business. I knew it was important to have my business set up properly from a legal perspective, but I wasn’t sure where to start. Ben provided excellent advice and direction to avoid future pitfalls. He was very responsive and flexible with scheduling, making himself available for in-person consultations as well as by phone and email. He is clearly knowledgeable and experienced with law, but beyond that you can tell he is passionate about business and entrepreneurs. He took a genuine interest in setting up my business for success, providing quality legal expertise at an affordable price.

Our group of about 30 independent dealers was recently asked by our common vendor to establish a distribution company to fit their new approach to the market. CLF worked with us to design a MMLLC tailored to our group, helped us to negotiate a favorable distribution agreement with our primary vendor, including IP issues, and name and logo rights. CLF provided excellent service and results at a rate that fit our start-up budget.

Ben and his staff represented us in the recent sale of our small business. Not only did they represent us in the sale, but they helped us navigate a very delicate issue that arose in the middle of the sale. With Ben's guidance, we were able to negotiate that issue and continue with the sale. The staff was very thorough, knowledgeable, responsive and easy to talk to. I would definitely recommend Ben for anyone that needed legal support.

Ben has been my lawyer now for 5 + years. He's the only lawyer I've ever had because he is, in my opinion, a unicorn in the world of law. Reliable, trustworthy, empathetic and always works with what I have in my wallet. I have never come out of a situation with Ben and lost. He will fight tooth and nail for you. He knows how to talk to people. He knows how to put you at ease in what is likely a scary, uncomfortable situation. I would recommend Ben 1000x over. You won't find a better lawyer.

I approached Ben with an issue I encountered with my recent house closing. Ben listened to the issue and then provided me a few options. While I wasn't able to proceed after researching in more detail, I greatly appreciate Ben spending his time with me and providing direction. If I ever need a law firm in this area, I will certainly contact Ben. Kudos.

Ben Calkins was wonderful to work with. He was immediately available via phone and email and all hours of the day. With his advice, I was able to get what was owed to me by my ex-partners without ever having to file a lawsuit or go to court! Highly professional, personable, and recommended!

We have utilized the Calkins law firm several times for expert legal counsel with regard to acquisitions, real estate, asset dispositions, and general advice. At all times they were responsive, professional, attentive, and exceptionally efficient, in every regard. The firm has a remarkable national outreach, with C-suite level networks in numerous industries, and an accumulated spectrum of subject matter experts to augment their own experiences, referent data bases, and demonstrated expertise.
