Highly Recommended for New Business Owners
I would highly recommend Ben Calkins to anyone starting their own business. I knew it was important to have my business set up properly from a legal perspective, but I wasn’t sure where to start. Ben provided excellent advice and direction to avoid future pitfalls. He was very responsive and flexible with scheduling, making himself available for in-person consultations as well as by phone and email. He is clearly knowledgeable and experienced with law, but beyond that you can tell he is passionate about business and entrepreneurs. He took a genuine interest in setting up my business for success, providing quality legal expertise at an affordable price.
Exceptional Business Contract Agreements
Some lawyers just understand the nuances of employment and partnership agreements. I trust Ben Calkins to provide exceptional contract agreements, and I have worked with his firm on multiple occasions to safeguard my assets and intellectual property in complex ventures.
Most notably, Ben orchestrated a partnership agreement that protected my book of clients, livelihood, and equity as part of a three-thirds partnership. This agreement brought together three unique design firms and their LLC’s together, operating under one new brand moniker.
As things go, I elected to move on with my own firm, after a number of high growth and volatile years for the joint venture. Ben’s foresight not only guaranteed I could clearly navigate a buyout and settlement with my partners — it set the stage for future prosperity and integrity in the marketplace.
For good reason, I continue to recommend and turn to Mr. Calkins for both entrepreneurial and legal counsel. What’s even better? Ben treats you like an important member of the community, like family — with respect, kindness and patience. He sets the bar for how more lawyers should practice law… truly for the good of all. – David M.
CLF vs Specialty and Prominent Old Style Law Firms
“I was sued by a former employer a year ago and engaged a prominent old style law firm to defend me. Was very frustrated by the cost of the old style law firm and the poor client service and the overall lack of progress towards a resolution. Was referred to Calkins Law Firm by a neighbor and retained CLF to defend me initially based on the quality education and top ratings and tremendous experience of their attorneys. My experience with CLF has been most favorable and I recommend CLF without reservation. CLF’s team has supplied genuine expertise, excellence in client service and at a relatively affordable cost. CLF has been attentive and aggressive and has the case headed in the right direction after months of inactivity with the prior firm.” – David
I Strongly Recommend This Firm for International Legal Matters
“I live in Canada and needed counsel to defend my real estate management business against a lawsuit brought in Ohio. What initially drew my attention to Calkins Law Firm was the excellent education, top ratings and hands on experience of the attorneys. Something I need to point out is that Ben was the only attorney that picked up the phone (I had called three or four more). Our first conversation was very cordial and that´s when I realized that I wanted to work with this firm. I recommend Calkins Law Firm to any business person in need of excellent business counsel and can say, after working with Ben and members of his team, that they provide genuine expertise, excellent client service and cost effective representation for their clients.” – Al
Excellent Business and Real Estate Attorney
I live in Pennsylvania, and I needed to retain an Ohio lawyer to assist with my Ohio real estate transactions. I chose Calkins Law Firm because of its top rating, well-educated and highly experienced business attorneys. Both of our transactions closed timely and on favorable terms. I would highly recommend Ben Calkins and the Calkins Law Firm. I look forward to using them again for our Ohio business attorney needs. – Anthony
Corporate Business & Contract Issues
“I’ve engaged Ben a number of times over the past several years to provide advice on business and contract issues. When I recently sold my business, I relied on Ben’s excellent legal advice re the technicalities of the deal. Just as importantly, his astute business advice re available options and alternatives enabled us to resolve the differences between the parties, while ensuring my needs were met. Ben’s acumen in both legal and business issues is always on point and his calm, professional demeanor, even when his clients might be a bit frazzled over some issue, is a definite plus. I highly recommend Ben as legal counsel to help with any business transaction.” – Barry
An Entrepreneur’s Attorney
“We use Ben for contracts because he understands our business needs quickly; he prepares contracts we need with customers, clients and suppliers; and, helps us respond to contracts that other people want us to sign. Ben has helped us with countless number of mergers, acquisitions, a formation of either “C” corporations or limited liability companies. Ben has also helps with leases of industrial space–such as offices and manufacturing space. Ben “specializes in small businesses,” and forms a close working relationship our management team.” – Terry
“My brother and I sought Ben’s help in a landlord dispute and were glad we did. For starters, we were a little reticent about how our case was going to be handled by Ben, only because we knew very little about him. Our nerves were immediately put to rest as Ben turned out to be very engaging and attentive to a dispute we were having with our commercial landlord. In the end, Ben was very effective and insightful for us, and we were glad to chosen him. We would recommend him without hesitation.” – John
Corporate Acquisition Counsel
“I engaged Ben Calkins as our lead attorney when acquiring the Automotive Components Remanufacturing Division from TRW. This was an exceptionally involved acquisition; requiring a fairly rapid yet seamless transition: financially, administratively, legal documentation-wise, and functionally. Extricating and then transitioning the working operations of a multi-national corporation, with facilities and separate unions in Mexico and Texas, into private hands was a formidable and complicated task; accomplished with Ben assisting us to mitigate every major issue. Throughout this tedious, tenuous, and at times frustrating ordeal he remained cool, calm, and a decisive asset. He is adroit, technically astute, and professional in every instance. Ben’s major quality is that he truly “listens”; and only then responds. Ben kept us fully informed; and always followed up. He is an excellent attorney; a very knowledgeable practitioner to a wide range of client industries; and at all times, a gentleman.” – Roy
Ben provides extraordinary representation and always delighted with the results of his work
“Regardless of the context, whether representing my NYSE listed employer or me personally, Ben Calkins has provided extraordinary representation. I have always been delighted with the results of his work! Beyond that, Ben Calkins was responsive to a fault! He kept me fully informed at all times and welcomed my questions, my comments. Having Ben Calkins in my corner has always made me safe, secure and well represented. I always know things will work out right with Ben Calkins’ help.
Finally, re cost, Ben Calkins is very fair and very reasonable and I’ve always considered him an excellent value. I recommend Ben Calkins wholeheartedly and without reservation.” – Michael
