Who We Are

J&O re-imagined the legal industry to make a meaningful impact on the companies and people we work with.

“Many of our clients have had disappointing experiences with a legal team — either it felt too big and impersonal, or too small and novice. It’s been extremely fulfilling to provide the perfect blend of seasoned expertise and effective support, and witness the success that comes from our involvement.”

– Founders & Managing Partners, Rachel Johnson and Christina Oshan.

Our Team

Our team is our power. J&O is a place where talented and passionate lawyers come together to work on challenging legal matters and offer innovative solutions. J&O team members are not just the best in their respective fields but also share an uncompromising commitment to our core values.

The J&O Way

J&O combines big-law experience with a genuine and personal approach. We are proud to make all operating decisions based on the following core values:

Relationships matter.

Maximum attention is given to cultivating personal and continuing relationships – with our clients, team members, and our community.

Because we care.

We truly care about the companies we represent and the people we work with. Relationships and institutional knowledge of our clients are key to our ability to offer top-tier legal services.

The Right Focus

We represent companies, not investors. We provide thoughtful legal counsel with the growth and success of our clients in mind, understanding that their success is intertwined with our own.

Simplicity is Key

Our job is to synthesize complicated legal issues and formalities in a user-friendly way for our clients. It’s essential that our attorneys are not only gifted in their legal work, but in verbal and written communication– our solutions have little value if our explanations are not actionable. All communications should be concise and end with an achievable next action.

People First

Life is short (and a lot of it is spent at work) and should be enjoyable on a daily basis. We implement various practices to keep our employees happy, challenged, and refueled. The development and well-being of our team members and their families will always come before profit.

Growth Through Collaboration

We encourage open communication and a collaborative atmosphere with colleagues and clients. We seek to improve the way people view their legal team – from a utility to a key partner.

We are constantly engaging in personal and professional development that enable us to offer creative solutions to everyday problems and prepares us for complex client matters.

Sustainable Practices

All of our decisions are made with the best interests of our employees, clients, and community in mind. We aim for sustainability by building a healthy workplace and meaningful, trusting relationships with our clients. We’re paperless, give back to charities that are meaningful to our team, and always welcome socially-responsible ideas to our work model.
