Chad Burton

Let's start with this: I am a lawyer and the Principal of Burton Law. I primarily work with businesses as outside corporate counsel, including start-ups to large, multi-national companies. Our law firm's use of technology -- combined with an experienced team of lawyers working under an innovative business model -- allows us to provide efficient and sophisticated services to our clients. Technology does not replace substantive legal knowledge and experience, but it helps introduce creative solutions to provide clients with more access to information and cost control measures. This is where I spend a lot of my time -- developing and implementing better ways to deliver legal services. Not only do I actually use the improved delivery methods with our clients, I also learn and share these ideas with other lawyers through writing and speaking engagements. I also teach a law practice management course as an adjunct law professor. I am also the CEO/co-founder of Curo Legal, a venture helping lawyers move their practices forward with practice management needs, including operations, virtual assistance, business development, bookkeeping and CFO work, among others. We also have partnered with the leading technology and service providers in this space. Finally, bar association work is a passion because these groups play a critical role in the future of the profession by helping lawyers understand changes in the legal services landscape. I have been fortunate to serve in leadership positions and committee roles at the local, state and national levels.
