Joseph M. Campos currently lead Ashbaugh Beal’s Corporate/ Securities Law Group. My practice is focused on the formation, financing and governance of private, public and emerging growth companies, and transactions such as private placements, debt financing, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, strategic alliances and technology licensing.
I also advise my clients on matters of executive compensation, protection of intellectual property and employment law. A large component of my practice involves “strategic lawyering”.
Many clients seek my advice not only about addressing the legal aspects of particular business conflicts and litigation matters affecting their business, but also about how to handle such issues in the context of their broader, strategic business goals and important business relationships.
Although I am first and foremost a transactional lawyer, I frequently put together teams of litigators, insurance coverage lawyers, accountants and other third-party professionals and orchestrate and supervise the prosecution and defense of disputes and litigation matters to ensure that my clients’ business goals are always kept at the forefront and their critical business relationships are preserved.
In other words, I don’t follow the traditional “win at all costs” approach other law firms use in litigation or dispute resolution. Instead, I strive to understand what a “win” truly means to my client’s business and captain a team to pursue that goal. “Strategic lawyering” means that in many ways I act as my client’s outside General Counsel and their trusted advisor. And that is exactly what I aim to be.
I am not only a lawyer, but also a former entrepreneur and business owner. That business experience makes me uniquely qualified to serve as a “strategic lawyer” to my clients. I co-founded and subsequently orchestrated the $10M sale of digital media company RocketVox to Seattle software innovator thePlatform, where I served as VP of Corporate Development/General Counsel until 2001.
I am also the founder and majority owner of Eagleclaw Football Academy, a year round youth soccer school focused on teaching fundamental soccer skills and developing top youth players.
