About Blue Maven Law

About Blue Maven Law, LLC

Blue Maven Law, LLC was founded to bring a new legal services approach to building business. Founder Brian Rogers understands that your business is not just a financial commitment but represents a real part of you. With a particular focus on business acquisition, Blue Maven Law is committed to first understanding your business and its objectives and then applying the highest standard of legal services to support those goals.

The name Blue Maven is derived from Brian’s vision of a truly effective and relevant business law practice. Maven describes Brian’s expertise in business law and his commitment to delivering top-notch legal services to every client and project. Blue is inspired by the book Blue Ocean Strategy written by Chan Kim and Renee Mauborgne.

Blue Maven Law is narrowly focused on doing deals. The firm is highly focused on helping small business owners – and future small business owners – achieve their dreams by safely buying or selling their business.

This is who Blue Maven Law is:

  • User-friendly, accessible, and responsive to the firm’s clients;
  • Speaking real English, not legalese;
  • Charging Fees that are straightforward and fair;
  • Focusing on clients’ business priorities and on important legal issues;
  • Not getting bogged down in unimportant small stuff – in other words, keeping an eye on overarching business goals and getting deals done; and
  • Seeking to continuously improve clients’ user experience and actively engage technology to serve the firm’s clients faster, better, and for a more-rational fee.

Also, Blue Maven Law values its vendors and view them as partners.
