Law Firm of the Week
The Denney Law Group

The Denney Law Group is proud to represent start-up companies in various stages of life. Our Nose-to-Tail Law Practice® counsels clients from founding, through growth, to exit, providing high-quality legal services to various industries. We don’t focus on singular problems; rather, we seek to build lasting relationships with our clients so we may grow together. We are exceptionally proud of our nationally-recognized Restaurant, Bar, Alcohol & Hospitality practice. Whether you’re a single-unit restaurant, growing regional chain, seasoned multi-unit operator, hotel, bar, nightclub, brewery, winery, distillery, spirits company, caterer, or private chef, we can address the unique issues your business will face. Some of the clients with whom we have been privileged to work over the years have been in industries as diverse as bespoke letterpress printing, commercial landscaping, member-based private air travel, turn-key retail development, medical, and non-profit, as well as myriad restaurants, bars, private chefs, caterers, breweries, wineries and distilleries. Our small firm is agile: an efficient ninja strike force, capable of adapting and turning on a dime – not a battleship that is impossibly slow to turn. This firm, like your business, is a start-up. We understand what you need and why. We also know that, despite your individuality, you will likely face many of the same challenges faced by those who preceded you.

Company of the Week

We believe that we’re only as good as the good we do. All the facts and figures that talk to our size and diversity and years of history, as notable and important as they may be, are secondary to the truest measure of Deloitte: The impact we make in the world. So, when people ask, “What’s different about Deloitte?” the answer resides in the many specific examples of where we have helped Deloitte member firm clients, our people, and sections of society to achieve remarkable goals, solve complex problems, or make meaningful progress. Deeper still, it’s in the beliefs, behaviors, and fundamental sense of purpose that underpin all that we do. With more than 150 years of hard work and commitment to making a real difference, our organization has grown in scale and diversity—approximately 245,000 people in 150 countries and territories, providing audit & assurance, tax, legal, risk and financial advisory and consulting services—yet our shared culture remains the same. For us, good isn’t good enough. We aim to be the best at all that we do—to help clients realize their ambitions, to make a positive difference in society, and to maximize the success of our people. This drive fuels the commitment and humanity that run deep through our every action. That’s what makes us truly different at Deloitte. Not how big we are, where we are, nor what services we offer. What really defines us is our drive to make an impact that matters in the world.
