Committed to Helping You Achieve Your Goals
MendenFreiman LLP is a boutique law firm located in Atlanta, Georgia, with a focus on business law, estate planning and estate administration. Founded in 1997 by George D. Menden and Lawrence H. Freiman, the firm’s attorneys specialize in helping businesses and individuals plan for the future. At MendenFreiman, we understand business and life can be complicated. For over 20 years, we have made it our mission to identify and simplify complex business, wealth and life-planning issues for our clients.
Legal, Tax, Accounting and Financial Expertise
Highly specialized and skilled problem-solvers, MendenFreiman attorneys are consistently recognized for excellence and competence by their peers and others within the industry. In addition to law degrees, most have earned advanced degrees in business, accounting or tax; and several are certified public accountants. This diverse combination of legal, management, tax and financial expertise sets our firm apart. Our clients trust us to help them solve complicated business planning, transactional, wealth transfer and estate planning matters.
Who We Serve
MendenFreiman clients hire us because we are uniquely qualified to navigate highly complex matters that have a long-term impact on both businesses and estates. The majority of the firm’s clients include:
- Family-owned and closely held businesses
- Business owners
- Successful entrepreneurs, executives and business leaders
- Multigenerational families
Our business clients include companies with both domestic and international operations from a range of sectors including manufacturing, distribution, services, technology, real estate, construction and McDonald’s franchisees.
Statement of Strategic Purpose
We help individuals and businesses work through and resolve legal issues one at a time. Individually, these shared experiences forge strong personal and long-lasting relationships between and among our clients, attorneys, and staff. Each individual experience with our firm leaves our client better off, in some small way, than at the start. Taken together, these experiences comprise a profoundly important body of work which has been well-done, having a positive impact on our clients and providing an excellent and stable platform for the professional growth of our employees. We add value to all of our client relationships. We strive to achieve for our clients: order from disorder, sense from complexity, and confidence from apprehension.
We practice in complex areas of the law. We counsel and assist individual clients and their families with projects involving estate planning and estate administration (including wills, trusts, charitable planning and probate), and federal and state taxation. We help our business clients with projects involving business sales and acquisitions, business planning, management and ownership succession planning, business law (including commercial business contracts), and federal and state taxation. We guide our clients through complex legal problems and transactions efficiently, using as our tools the expertise, resources and communication skills we have acquired through our decades of collective experience.
Employees of our law practice are bright people who share our compassion for our clients and our commitment to uncompromising quality legal services. We will be professionally challenged and intellectually stimulated by remaining at the forefront of our complex practice areas. We will be personally rewarded by the relationship of trust and confidence that we share with every client. We will constantly improve our delivery “systems” so that our clients receive consistently excellent legal work for a fair price and with a personal touch. And we will keep our offices beautiful, orderly, productive, and positive – creating a nurturing and accepting environment where our employees enjoy working, and where clients are comfortable and well served through exceptional teamwork.
We will remember that our firm and the work we do are important, but they are not the only reasons we exist. We will support our employees in their other life roles and activities: As parents, spouses, members of families, and as contributors to communities and churches/synagogues.
At the end of our practices we wish it to be said that we were valued advisors and good businesspeople. We lived balanced lives. We nurtured and maintained warm relationships with our clients and co-workers. We created and maintained a law firm which contributed significantly to the personal and business success of its clients and where employees became better, more successful people.
