A Year of Innovation and Nimbleness
By: Megan Lopp Mathias, Founding Partner and Nikki Gensmer, Marketing Manager
At Lopp Mathias Law, we are finishing the year out strong and taking a moment to celebrate our accomplishments, despite unprecedented challenges and changes brought on by the pandemic.
Lopp Mathias Law was founded on principles of innovation and nimbleness, so while the impact on the legal industry was still a challenge, we were quick and agile to adapt. The legal industry generally has been slow and reluctant to change, even before the pandemic. That resistance to change and innovation is one of the reasons Lopp Mathias Law was established. Because of COVID-19, courtroom trials were replaced with virtual trials, stay-at-home orders closed courthouses, and we met with our clients virtually for most of the year. We rolled with the punches and implemented virtual systems – read our recent article on virtual mediation.
The shock was less deleterious to the clients of Lopp Mathias Law as it could have been because entrepreneurial spirit is marbled throughout our practice; we understand how to pivot and we utilize cutting edge technology. We are proud of our clients and of our accomplishments in 2020. We look forward to serving you with Purpose, Principle, and Power in 2021. We promise the same drive and determination that our clients have come to know and expect.
Accessibility, promptness, relationship-building, nimbleness, passion, realness, honesty and trust are all core values and principles Lopp Mathias Law was founded upon. We pledge our commitment to them in the coming year. With that, we take a moment to celebrate our accomplishments.
