They Really Care About Your Business

“The Calkins Law Firm represented us in the recent acquisition of our company. Ben and his staff provided us with excellent legal counsel and advice. Not only are they knowledgeable, they are easy to talk to, very responsive and really care about your business. They were constantly looking out for our best interests and identified numerous areas where documents needed to be amended to better protect our interests.”

Rod

Small Business Owner

“I recently needed some legal business advice with a situation involving a former partner. The Calkins Law Firm were of great assistance to me. They gave me strong advice which ended up clearing up what seemed like a messy legal situation quickly. As a small business owner, I’m glad to that I found Calkins Law Firm. They will be my first call the next time I need legal help.”

Chris

Establishing a Distribution Company

“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.”

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. Ben has been my go to during some of my darkest times. He’s affordable, he’s professional, and always on his game. Good luck finding another law firm as reliable as this one. I would recommend Ben 1000x over. You won’t find a better lawyer.”

I had the better lawyer

“Ben Calkins of the Calkins Law Firm has been my corporate attorney since 1993. Ben has always been responsive to my needs, and has great knowledge of the pertinent subject matter. I’ll never forget when I had some tough negotiations on a contract in 1993. The other party said, “You had the better lawyer”.”

Expert Legal Counsel

“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.”

We have repeatedly engaged Ben Calkins

“We have repeatedly engaged Ben Calkins as expert counsel over the past 30 years; to help us address a veritable host of diverse legal matters; personal, as well as involving business acquisitions, real estate transactions, contract and other dispute resolution, various and difficult litigation matters, strategic corporate advice, and on occasion, to guide us through exceptionally complex and legally challenging corporate ‘issues’. In every instance Ben has Consistently and Confidentially exhibited well-honed skill sets and sound judgment, strong technical expertise, and an expansive breadth of core competencies accumulated from successfully serving a range of client industries. But most important of all; he has two (2) rare skills: The First; to actually ‘listen’, coupled with The Second; an equally superb core capacity to be able to then also distill viable ‘options’ from a quagmire of prerogatives and a cacophony of competing demands, with a stunning clarity of focus.”

Roy

Very Pleased, Highly Recommended

“As a business owner I have known Ben for years as a man of integrity, passion for people, and able to get the job done. He has helped me with legal matters and I have been very pleased with the work he has done for me. He comes highly recommended for any legal need you may have as a business.”

Cindy Sladek

Real Estate Transaction

“I found the Calkins law firm to be very responsive. I appreciated being able to talk directly to Ben without going through any “gate guards.” He provided a lot of great advice before I even actually hired the firm. Ben also provided contact information and recommendations for non-legal folks who could assist us with other needs we had in preparing the real property for sale. He always responded to my messages quickly–as did Doug, the other Calkins attorney that worked with me. They were very flexible in meeting the desires of our buyer. In summary, I highly recommend this firm if you need help with a real estate transaction.”

Anita

A Blessing

“Tom had to listen to, and understand, a complex business dispute. It was quite technical. But he was able to use his legal knowledge and skill to respond clearly and provide excellent representation. I could not possibly have done this myself. So it was a blessing to find a professional of Tom’s standing to represent me in this dispute.”

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.

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.

I have had the opportunity to work with Mr. Calkins' firm on multiple occasions. In 2018, and 2019 Pars Capital hired the Calkins Law Firm to handle the legal aspects of merger transaction. I have found the staff to be very knowledgeable in performing the transaction details and offering valuable advice when constructing the transaction structure. The firm performs within timelines that are sometime very aggressive due to nature of the work we do. I will certainly not hesitate to hire the firm on future transactions.

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.

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!
