Happy Independence Day from Burton Law!

On this patriotic day, we would like to celebrate and give thanks for America’s hard earned and defended independence. Independence that gives our clients the ability to bring their hopes into fruition, to create jobs, and to contribute to the growing world around us.

Starting a business is a true American privilege. Entrepreneurialism is embraced, and exalted not only as a sign of achievement but of courage, boldness and integrity. We are fortunate enough to witness America’s unwavering desire to build, create, and dream everyday in the startups that we work with.

“I look forward to a great future for America. A future in which our country will match its strength with our moral restraint, its wealth with our wisdom, and its power with our purpose.” John F. Kennedy

Endless Opportunity

America is such a unique market for starting businesses because we have a diverse culture combined with the economic power and the intelligence to demand top notch products and services. There’s a reason why this country attracts so much diversity from all over the globe, and that is because of innovation and progress. It may sound like a pipe dream, but the people who have the drive to succeed will find it here in some shape or form.

People from all over the world have come to the states hoping to realize this dream. They bring their ambitions but they also bring their culture. Imagine what the United States would look like without our diversity in language, food, holidays, or music. This opens the door for an endless amount of opportunity to create products, services, and build companies to meet the ever changing needs of our nation.

From giants like Microsoft, Apple, IPG, Google, to smaller companies like LinkedIn and Solarwinds, our businesses change the way we live in the world around us — each of which started with just an idea, and ambition. These three startups below are aiming to do the same, and continue to motivate us to help every entrepreneur build their dream too.

Happy Fourth of July from Burton Law, wishing you a great holiday weekend!
