Chairman’s Letter

Client experiences matter. We practice law from a business point of view that allows us to get to know our clients individually. We strive to understand their business goals and concerns because we consider ourselves partners in their business. That means we complement the delivery of crucial legal strategies with sound business advice to provide innovative solutions.

One way we demonstrate the commitment to be partners with our clients is by hosting informative events with presentations from business leaders across a variety of sectors. Our Breakfast Forums have become a popular series and we will host another Forum the second half of the year.

C-Suite Conversations

New to our event lineup is the BoyarMiller C-Suite Conversations, an exclusive series of unscripted discussions with business leaders. A small and engaging event by design, it provides an opportunity for candid conversations about business challenges, changes and opportunities.

Last month, two executives of Savage Brands shared their insights with our small group. Let me thank Bethany Andell, President, and Paula Savage Hansen, Founder and Chairman, who discussed leadership transition, commoditization of an industry, and the power of purpose in transforming a business. Savage Brands recently launched a business book to help executives drive performance and ultimately profits through a commitment to purpose. Bethany is co-author of the book titled “Get Your Head Out of Your Bottom Line And Build Your Brand on Purpose.” I highly recommend it.


Our attorneys have several new posts on some of the business and legal issues they are discussing with clients. The topics include: one way to reduce litigation costs; how to protect information at your business; arbitration provisions in employment agreements; and protecting trademarks. We invite you to read these and let us know if you have any questions.

Summer Associates on the go

We have put our summer associates to work! Matthew Callison and Jay Zhang work on actual client matters with our attorneys. The Summer Associate Program gives them an opportunity to learn about our firm, our people and our culture. We are proud that several of our lawyers first joined BoyarMiller as summer associates. Read why Matthew and Jay joined the program.

As always…

The driving force of our firm is to help clients succeed. We are here when you need us as your business partners and lawyers. Enjoy the summer!

My best,


Chris Hanslik
