About Frans & Associates

WHO ARE WE AND WHY WOULD YOU DO BUSINESS WITH US?

Frans & Associates offers the best of both worlds to its clients, professional expertise at the highest level and a personal approach. The firm provides pragmatic advice to achieve top-notch results. We offer our clients personal attention and assistance, resulting in prompt and high-quality legal advice. As a consequence, we have long standing relationships with many of our clients. Clients praise our firm for our all-round one-stop-shop capabilities and our commercial expertise. The firm maintains efficient and productive contacts locally and internationally.

Frans &Associates has a new business model which is designed for entrepreneurs and startups looking for an alternative to the big law firms.  Here’s how we are different:

  • We only have senior attorneys who are responsible for your project.  Each member of our team has vast legal experience. .Your project will be assigned to an experienced attorney who will give you the hands-on, personal attention that you’re looking for. This senior attorney will be your contact person and will be the one supervising the work eventually done by junior attorneys and paralegals.
     
  • We only do one thing. Unlike the big law firms (which have many different departments and specialties), we are laser-focused on one thing: providing corporate legal services and other related to entrepreneurs and their companies.  Accordingly, we know how to get corporate projects done quickly and efficiently because that’s what we do.
     
  • We are lean by design.  We have stripped-out the huge overhead costs of the big law firms (such as expensive office space, large support staffs and highly-paid young lawyers) and are passing the savings on to our clients.  We understand that entrepreneurs and startups are tired of paying their lawyers for needless overhead and overstaffed projects.
     
  • We love helping entrepreneurs. We recognize that entrepreneurs are a special breed with special needs. That’s why our entire practice is built around helping entrepreneurs and their companies both locally and internationally— and that’s why we’re always available (via email or telephone) and pride ourselves on our responsiveness.  Indeed  we pride ourselves in helping entrepreneurs succeed. Their success is our success.
