Why Choose Novara Dorn?

At Novara Dorn, the majority of our business comes from referrals, either from current or former clients, or from colleagues who are familiar with our work. This is a great source of pride to us, because it's a reflection of the quality of work and level of service we strive to offer every day. Here are a few of the reasons clients have retained Novara Dorn—and referred us to others.


Quite simply, there is no substitute for skill, and skill is best gained through experience. Novara Dorn has over 20 years of experience—something that matters to our clients in practice areas where experience is critical. We don't try to do everything; we do a few things, and we strive to do them better than anyone else. Our experience with complex and challenging commercial real estate and finance matters leads colleagues to refer many cases to us that they trust we have the sophisticated skill set to resolve.


For many clients, we serve as problem-solvers, but our goal is to be much more than that. What sets Novara Dorn apart is the fact that we consciously cultivate strong working relationships with our clients. We view ourselves as partners in their success. To effectively fill that role, we commit ourselves to understanding each client's needs, and their goals for both the short and long term. This allows us to not only solve current problems, but to avoid future problems and to help our clients actively plan for growth and success.


In order to have a successful business relationship with our clients, we feel that communication is key. That includes communication about process, and how our clients can expect their legal matter to unfold, and communication about progress, or what's happening in their case or transaction at any given moment. It also means open communication about costs. Most of our clients are businesses or non-profits that need to keep an eye on expenses. Novara Dorn is committed to helping our clients understand, anticipate, and manage their legal costs, including flexible payment plans when appropriate.

Attention to Detail.

The types of work for which Novara Dorn has gained a reputation require meticulous attention to detail. In finance, real estate, estate planning, litigation, and corporate governance, every word matters. We carefully draft and review documents to ensure that our clients are placed in the most favorable position possible, and that they understand all their rights and obligations so that they don't encounter unwelcome surprises down the road.
