About NY Business Lawyer Nina Kaufman

What Makes Nina Tick?

Nina Kaufman is a small business champion—not just your ordinary business attorney. Forbes Magazine calls her “One of the 25 Most Influential Women Tweeting about Entrepreneurship.”  The U.S. Small Business Administration named her their regional Women in Business Champion of the Year for her creative approaches to educating and advocating for small businesses.  In over 15 years in business, Kaufman has helped thousands of entrepreneurs in the generation of tens of millions of dollars by working diligently to help her clients save time, money and aggravation with business law issues. As a trusted thought leader, Kaufman reaches over 2 million readers each month on Entrepreneur.com.

Nina says:

I’m often asked, “Why did you become a lawyer?” And I’ll quip, “Because I saw “To Kill a Mockingbird” at an impressionable age.” There’s truth behind the (attempted) humor. I wanted to be Atticus Finch when I grew up. Still do. Someone wise, trusted, and decent who helped solve people’s legal problems with integrity.

Couple that with the fact that I’m a bookworm, a ham, and an avid writer—it’s no surprise my practice has evolved as it has. I’m an educator at heart, and my beat is small business law. My mission is to demystify legal mumbo-jumbo for entrepreneurs and business owners. I want you to have the legal bedrock you need to build a sustainable company that supports you, your family, and your community. That’s reflected in my multi-faceted approach to legal services, my writing, my professional speaking, and the resources I’ve created for entrepreneurs. I wear many hats, but then, so do my business clients.

When I was young and green and had just passed the bar exam, a mentor gave me a dog-eared, hand-written copy of Ralph Waldo Emerson’s “Success.” He had been carrying it in his wallet for years, eager for the right opportunity to share it. It reminds me that success has many wonderful dimensions in addition to financial ones. Click to expand/collapse the poem

Why do we love working with these clients so much?

“Creative and professional services companies are optimistic, creative (no surprise), and team-oriented. They’re on a constant quest for improvement–whether it’s productivity, revenue, or self-growth as leaders. They understand what it means to roll up your sleeves and get in the muck. They love what they do and want to delegate what they don’t to a trusted team of advisors and staff. They enjoy a good laugh. They put in the long hours, months, and years to realize a vision and make a difference in the world. They’re my kind of people.”- Nina Kaufman
