Jessica L. Franken, Partner

Practice Philosophy

First and foremost, Jessica likes to solve problems and takes a practical approach in working with clients. With over 10 years of experience working as in-house counsel and executive for national companies, she works with clients as a lawyer and business advisor. She understands the importance of managing the risks inherent in any transaction and works with her clients to reach an appropriate balance of risk and reward. Her clients appreciate this approach because it matches their objective of maximizing opportunities and minimizing the associated risks.

Jessica takes the time to fully understand her clients' short and long term business goals, business strategies, competitive environment and industry. She tailors her business counseling to fit with the client's situation. She helps clients get better control over their legal matters by providing training and mentoring to the staff involved in contract review and negotiations. She regularly advises start-ups, emerging companies, small to mid-size companies and large corporations.
