Are you like our clients?

You’ve never fit the corporate mold. From one adventure to the next, you’ve created a unique life and your business reflects that.

You’ve worn every hat and done every task. Worried about payroll and stressed over sales goals. Learned how to lead people and read a balance sheet. Handled challenges that came out of nowhere. First you had to trademark and copyright your precious IP. Now cybersecurity is the new thing to understand. There are always risks to manage and the shareholders or board members may not always get it. Sometimes, they make dealing with employees feel easier. 

It’s hard to imagine who you would be without your business.

The hardest part is making decisions when there is no clear answer and imperfect data. That’s when good advice from someone you trust really matters. Someone who helps you navigate risks and protect what you’ve built with a holistic understanding of your larger purpose. Someone who gets your mission.

That's who we hope to be for you.  At Dunlap Law, our North Star is to be your counsel in the truest sense of the word.

Beyond law (and we're pretty good at the law part) our life's work is to contribute wisdom and discernment to your hard decisions. We walk alongside our clients, empowering them to be and do their very best work. If this resonates with you, then we're the right law firm for you. We hope you'll get in touch. Contact Us

Our Services


Sustainability first emerged in the late 1980’s focused on environmental concerns.  Since then, it has evolved into a comprehensive business management discipline dedicated to understanding and managing all non-financial risks.  From cybersecurity to water scarcity, reputational risk, labor issues, supply chain vulnerabilities, or greenhouse gas emissions, every business has unique sustainability issues and stakeholders who care about it.

Companies that understand and measure sustainability performance outperform their traditional peers.

General Counsel

Dunlap Law serves as outside general counsel contributing experience and understanding of business risks and opportunities to help clients reach practical goals.  But, the truth is, there’s no shortage of lawyers who can fill that roll.

Our mission is bigger.

We partner with clients in consultation and deliberation toward a common cause for the common good. Because business decisions are almost never only legal issues, we seek wisdom first. When appropriate we bring that understanding to your most difficult dilemmas. We hope our work empowers you to make ethical and well-reasoned business judgments every day.

I love that Tricia operated with a high level of integrity, tenacity, and straightforward communication.
