About Craig Lauchner

Practicing law at large and mid-sized firms, I noticed a recurring theme—entrepreneurs and growing businesses are often priced out of the legal services market. Small and middle market companies have many of the same needs as large corporations; but high (and increasing) legal fees can dissuade business owners from getting the counsel they need. I started Lauchner PLLC to address that problem.


Other firms provide these services, but rarely with a business model designed for growing businesses. I understand the capital constraints of startups and small businesses. I also know my wheelhouse. So when I am not the right lawyer for the job, I connect clients with one of my many trusted attorneys in my network with the right expertise.
