In addition to our corporate and technology practice, Smart Start Law has broad litigation and dispute resolution capabilities, handling a variety of high-stakes disputes, litigation and trials for financial institutions, businesses and individuals via Parker Pohl LLP (Super Lawyers Magazine “Rising Stars” and 2017 honor recipients), where Paula Glass serves as Special Counsel.  Practice additionally includes acting as expert witness in corporate law matters for comprehensive insurance and risk management companies.

As COO of a world-renown boutique digital design shop, The Wonderfactory, it was my job to make sure that we had the best legal representation in the business.  Paula Glass was that and more;  she understood the legal challenges faced by a small company, the IP issues we needed to address, often before we even knew they were issues. She was invaluable to our success.
