about us

 

Kohler Law’s mission has always been to provide experienced former in-house General Counsel/Senior Counsel attorneys for the same hourly rate as a first year associate at other firms – we’ve nailed the model and our clients save over 50% on legal fees.

Approximately 20% of our clients have in-house counsel and use Kohler Law as-needed for overflow support.

Our objective is not to displace a client’s big firm that handles financing, M&A transactions and complex litigation, but to save money on day-to-day legal functions that support a business. For example sales, licensing and commercial agreements, IP, HR/employment and real estate.

Our virtual law firm model and low overhead benefits our clients thru cost control, responsiveness and access to senior-level attorneys who integrate with your team and ramp up quickly for any type of project.

“We’ve been doing the same thing for our clients for 20 years, technology is making it easier and easier for us to continually improve our service to our clients and provide lower costs.” –Robert Kohler, JD, founder Kohler Law Group, a Professional Corporation

Robert Kohler

Owner / Founder / Entrepreneur / Advisor / Investor

I founded Kohler Law Group over 15 years ago and my firm has represented 1000’s of venture-backed and publicly traded technology companies worldwide. In addition to being involved in the legal field I have real-world business experience as a successful entrepreneur and have founded and sold several technology companies. My primary residence is in San Francisco and for the occasional getaway I go to my second home in Santa Barbara. During the winter, you’ll catch me skiing and boarding in Tahoe and this summer ’15 you’ll find me mountain biking, rock climbing and wind surfing (and wine tasting). I’ve been involved in a number of companies: notably in 2005, I co-founded Castfire – a video publishing platform for clients such as Google/Next New Networks, CBS Interactive, ESPN/Disney, Comcast, CNET, PBS and NPR stations, and hundreds more – that was acquired by Alphabird a few years back in ’12.
