Steve Becker is an accomplished Georgia business, contracts, and intellectual property attorney with more than three decades of experience. Now, as the owner of Becker Law LLC, Steve uses his comprehensive knowledge of the legal system and business world to help Metro Atlanta freelancers, startups, and small and medium businesses achieve their goals.
Extensive Knowledge, Skills, and Experience
Having gotten his feet wet working in a general practice firm, Steve soon found his niche as an attorney and general counsel for major corporations—including a $10 billion-plus subsidiary of a well-known conglomerate that boasts more than $45 billion in annual revenue.
In his more than 35 years of practice, Steve has consistently demonstrated adept negotiation, organization, and leadership skills. He’s earned a well-deserved reputation for delivering innovative legal and business solutions that are tailored to his client's specific needs and resources.
Steve possesses in-depth and wide-ranging knowledge of the complex legal issues businesses can face regarding matters such as:
- Entity formation
- Contract drafting, review, and negotiation
- Intellectual property licensing and development
- Regulatory compliance
- Trade practices
- Commercial transactions and agreements
- Risk management
- Franchising and distribution
- Manufacturing and product liability
- Consumer protection
- Antitrust and competition
- Advertising and marketing
- e-Commerce and Internet law
Committed to Providing Superior Solutions, Strategies, and Client Support
In his role as in-house counsel for large corporations, Steve was frequently disappointed in the legal services and customer support he received as a client of a big law firm. He found that attorneys at traditional firms tended to needlessly complicate things, both in communicating advice and in billing.
They also often failed to make the effort to truly understand the businesses, corporate cultures, and budgeting constraints of the corporations Steve was representing. Without that understanding, it was next to impossible for them to provide what Steve and his corporate clients expected and deserved: legal advice customized to their businesses, with transparent pricing and billing.
After more than three decades, Steve decided to move to the other side of the table and open up his own practice. His vision was simple: to provide creatives, startups, and small and medium businesses the same high-quality business law, contracts, and intellectual property legal services as the big law firms he'd worked with, but with a client-focused and cost-effective approach they'd lacked.
This unparalleled dedication to ensuring “frictionless” customer service is part of what set Steve and Becker Law LLC apart from the competition. And it's more than just empty promises—this commitment is backed by a Client Bill of Rights that gives clients the right to make an up or down “satisfaction adjustment” to their bill. Few other firms are this confident in the value of their services.
Steve is admitted to practice in the following jurisdictions/courts:
- New York
- United States Supreme Court
- United States District Court for the Southern District of New York
- United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York
- United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia
Hobbies and Interests
When he's not busy helping creatives and businesses succeed, Steve enjoys playing the guitar and traveling with his family. He also practices Aikido: a modern Japanese martial art that focuses on harmonization and finding peaceful solutions to situations involving conflict.
