For Immediate Release
J. Nicholas Rozsman, a Georgia lawyer with over thirty years of business and legal experience announced today the formation of Rozsman Business Law, a firm dedicated to addressing the needs of startup businesses in Georgia.
Rozsman, who went from practicing law with a nationally-recognized securities law firm to serving as Deputy Director of Municipal Finance and Managing Director in charge of the Municipal Bond New Products and Derivatives Departments at Lehman Brothers, has spent the last decade and a half of his career involved in both the business and legal aspects of startup companies. He was a Founder and legal counsel for Procuri, Inc., an On-Demand SaaS Supply Management Solutions company and served as part of the legal services transition team after Procuri’s acquisition by Ariba, Inc in 2007. Rozsman also served as General Counsel for Whoop, Inc., a SaaS Mobile Content Delivery System company, and has spent much of the past decade providing legal services for startup and early stage tech companies.
Rozsman Business Law has been formed specifically to address the needs of startups and early stage companies. Mr. Rozsman explains, “As a participant in the business cycles of start-up and early stage companies, I know where their priorities lie. Entrepreneurs put their heart and soul into growing their companies. Money is always tight. The most valuable asset is capital and it has to be deployed wisely. Because of the financial requirements of staffing, office space, transportation, etc., legal services often take a back seat at this stage of a company’s development; not because legal services are not needed, but because often these services are too expensive. But legal services are very much needed to grow a company properly and most importantly, to protect the company.”
Mr. Rozsman goes on to explain that a start-up or early stage company’s number one priority is generating revenues and closing transactions. Often these companies are intimidated by and given low priority from legal counsel, who are more focused on their large company clients. He explains that his hands-on experience with start-up and early stage companies allows him to establish a personal working relationship with key personnel to help advance the company’s goals.
Recognizing the tension that exists between a company’s need for quality legal services and the lack of capital in the early stages of a company’s development, Rozsman indicates that he is formulating innovative fee structures for clients and plans to announce additional details in the near future. He explains that such fee structures can only be achieved by eliminating the overhead associated with maintaining the law office environment. Accordingly, Rozsman Business Law has been established as a virtual law office thereby eliminating bricks and mortar costs and excessive personnel costs.
