J. Jakeem Lambert, MBA
Boots to Business Law
J. Jakeem Lambert wants to help Black and Brown-owned small businesses start and grow. “When I look around my community, I see so many great businesses that are on the brink of failure due to a lack of legal support and structure. Then there are the countless would-be businesses that don’t know where to begin. I want to serve as the bridge that allows these businesses to realize their full potential.”
As a future deal lawyer, Jakeem hopes to handle the complex transactional legal needs of Black and Brown small business owners, freeing those companies to focus on their day-to-day operations and continued growth.
Additionally, Jakeem would like to work with privately held and publicly traded companies focusing on strategic and financial M&A, antitrust issues, and contract negotiation and drafting.
