VISION

Founded in 2010 by Wendy Pizarro, a Harvard Law, Oxford and Yale alumna with extensive private practice experience with top-tier businesses and high net worth families, our boutique law firm is dedicated to serving the long-term legal and business demands as well as unique personal challenges of our high net worth, entrepreneurial, corporate and entertainment clients as trusted fiduciaries.

 

We cater to high-value clientele requiring us to be strategic advisors, creative problem solvers and crisis managers available 24/7 for our clients.

We are the "go-to" outside general counsel for our clients establishing a long-term relationship with each of them with the goal of growing with our clients and sharing in their personal, family and business successes. On average, our clients stay with us for at least 5+ years and become our extended friends and family, so that we are able to service their legal needs over time and be a gatekeeper to other service providers that we will refer and coordinate with in a collaborative process.

 

One example of a typical client engagement is a Rancho Santa Fe-based, high net worth family office who has been our friend and client for 8 years. The net worth of this family exceeds $50 million with over 85% of the asset portfolio in private business interests and real estate.  Here is a sample of the work that we have completed for this single client:

  • Crisis Management

    • Collaborations with private investigators on opposition research 

    • Negotiations with third parties to bolster offensive and defensive positions

  • Asset Protection and Family 

    • Asset protection strategy to protect certain assets from the ex-spouse as a creditor in a high-conflict divorce

    • Post-divorce implementation of continued asset protection strategies

  • Estate and Legacy Planning 

    • Will and trust planning and guardianship strategies

    • Modifications and amendments to the estate plan as assets are acquired

  • Corporate / Start-up 

    • Start-up and incorporation of the client's consulting business and holding companies

    • Maintenance of corporate entities

  • Real Estate 

    •  Real estate sales transactions of California based investment properties and primary residences outside of MLS

    • Negotiation of easement agreements for common space use with neighbors

    • Adjustment of boundary lines in collaboration with adjoining property owners

  • Landlord-Tenant

    • Drafting and negotiation of short-term and long-term LOIs, term sheets, & leases for client's investment properties

    • Lease compliance with short-term local ordinances related to anti-AirBnB provisions

 

To meet our client's pressing needs, our law firm culture is focused on the following abiding principals in our day-to-day practice of law:

 

  • Team-based collaboration and open communication

  • Creative problem solving of complex legal problems

  • Value added, full service and client-centric mindset
