We exist to drive growth

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
law is practiced”

- 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.

We Help with individualized service

Growing businesses need more than cookie-cutter legal documents. We begin by using our legal and business experience to fully understand a new client’s unique challenges and goals, and then engage in an interactive process to create a coordinated plan to address the challenges and achieve the goals.
