Our Purpose

Our goal is to help clients build the best companies in the world. We combine decades of legal expertise, strong values, a practical approach, and an extensive network of business experts to support entrepreneurs and investors as they start and grow successful companies.

Enduring Values

Montgomery & Hansen is built on integrity, respect, quality, and teamwork – and we encourage these traits in our client companies as well. Our guiding principles enable us to consistently build value for entrepreneurs and investors. Because our business is built on these qualities, we know they work.

The Legal Expertise You Need

Our attorneys have decades of experience at some of Silicon Valley’s premier law firms. We know what a company needs to succeed as a new business and as a growing enterprise. We also know what you don’t need: high billing rates and over-lawyering. We provide the finest legal service available at rates with which start-ups and investors are comfortable.

Engaging Others in Your Enterprise

We believe that great ideas inspire great people. We also believe that a young company surrounded by experienced, intelligent support develops faster and stronger. At Montgomery & Hansen, we connect our clients with experts in a variety of related fields, including investors and other successful entrepreneurs.

Preparing Clients for a Sustainable Future

Our attorneys were instrumental in the drafting and passage of California's benefit corporation law, and the firm was one of the first law firms to become a Certified B Corporation. As a result, M&H is actively engaged in helping clients create sustainable businesses. We prepare such clients for success in the emerging business paradigm where corporations not only optimize profit but also provide a positive impact on society and the environment.

"I've worked with Montgomery & Hansen on many projects, from venture and debt financings to complicated LLC operating agreements. M&H's service and knowledge of the market is unmatched. The team truly lives by their mantra of helping building successful companies!"
