Clients often ask us to provide a legal opinion or similar evaluation to aide in the decision-making process associated with a transaction, regulatory issue or dispute. In rendering legal opinions, often in the form of a letter comprised of tailored legal research, analysis and commentary, we seek to provide limited-basis counsel and professional judgments as to how the respective legal question addressed in the legal opinion would be decided by courts or regulators in the jurisdiction as of the date of the evaluation. In guiding our clients through opinion practice, we seek to provide frank expressions of our informed and reason judgment, based upon an analysis of the facts, laws, assumptions and other matters relevant to the issue at bar. In most circumstances, we seek to provide an answer as to how the highest court in the land should decide the legal issues considered in the opinion if the court were presented with that issue.
Our lawyers go to great lengths to provide business-friendly legal opinions that are written in plain English, free from legalese, jargon and the repetition of terms that stray from common business parlance. In answering the pressing questions of our clients, we provide opinions that are clear and understandable. When clients obtain an opinion from Jimerson Birr, they will have a better understanding of their legal ability to engage in the contemplated conduct or transaction, and the legal and business risks that they should consider further and evaluate. Our lawyers provide high-quality legal work, high-touch service, and do so cost-effectively with a wealth of talent and success that our historical results have shown. If you need to understand how to satisfy contractual agreements, comply with governing law, or answer questions based upon authoritative analysis and professional judgment, Jimerson Birr lawyers can provide tailored and timely legal opinion counsel.
