Fast-growing companies need both expert legal service and strategic business advice. We created Tandem so that business and legal minds could work together like gears on a bicycle, providing integrated service that is far greater than the sum of its parts.

“We will challenge the way

- Michael McDevitt, CEO

WE SUCCEED by being selective

We combine the best minds from law and business to work with clients that we can help the most: innovative young companies that have booked revenue and are looking to scale up their business.
