Industry Outlook Our clients understand that many of today’s markets move fast. We work hard to stay at the forefront of such changes and to simplify key issues for our clients to help maintain their awareness and readiness to face these challenges, to take advantage of opportunities and to make their businesses a success. Right now, the American finance industry is in a state of flux following the election and there are a lot of pitfalls but there are also a lot of opportunities out there as well. We help our clients avoid the former while taking advantage of the latter. Economic challenges continue to affect our sector. The business environment after the 2008 slowdown was challenging. That’s now turned around and there is a sense of optimism and bullishness in the economy. With respect to specific regional challenges and opportunities, Richard adds, “I find that there is less and less regionalism in the practice of law now. Today, we represent many international clients and with the internet, international borders are much less of a hindrance to getting business done. This is an exciting prospect for a small firm”. Jones & Haley provides sophisticated legal services, such as securities law and mergers and acquisitions, that are usually only found in large law firms. Yet we can provide the services much more economically, because we are a smaller firm with lower overhead. We are seeing a lot of optimism in the market, and we are currently involved in some very exciting M&A deals and securities law transactions. We hope to help our clients attain success in these deals and our reward is their success. Company: Jones & Haley, P.C.
