“As a cloud software startup company based out of Glenview, Illinois, we – Kokomo Solutions, Inc. – desperately needed guidance, not just explanations, of the law and not leaving me with a blank “it’s up to you.” Insightful and real world-based help was crucial, especially for a startup entrepreneur during the most crucial phases of the company; to handle the growth as well as the incorporation. As a startup based out of the Midwest (vs. the valley), it had been a daunting journey to find the right law partner to work with in this software industry. After interviewing multiple local law firms, and the subpar experience with a Silicon Valley firm, I was referred to Navigant. What a breeze in the air that was! The Navigant business law team, including Attorney Natasha Adler, helped to-the-point of deciphering the legal jargons for someone like me, a geek, to understand. Navigant helped me not only with cleaning up the mess but also set our company on the right track.

I’d highly recommend Navigant to any aspiring software venture and startup business owner in the Chicagoland area in a heartbeat.”
