ABOUT LLOYD C. CHATFIELD II:
A FORTUNE 500 ATTORNEY RETURNS TO HIS SMALL-BUSINESS ROOTS
Lloyd Chatfield was practically raised in his family’s successful jewelry business, where he got an up-close view of the keys to succeeding in a small business: working harder and smarter than the competition, earning and fighting to retain your customers’ trust, and making the most of every opportunity that comes your way. Even after becoming a lawyer, Lloyd remained very close to the family business, still supporting the business’ legal, financial and marketing activities, and even showing up most Christmas breaks to work behind the counter during the busy holiday season. This life-long exposure to the challenges facing individuals and small businesses colors every aspect of Lloyd’s approach to providing legal support to his clients.
While his heart may have always been with small businesses, Lloyd’s law practice was anything but. Before opening his own firm, Lloyd spent the better part of two decades representing Fortune 500 companies, both as a big law firm associate and as a senior in-house attorney. During this time, Lloyd handled both litigation and business matters, litigating cases worth tens of millions of dollars and negotiating major contracts with such corporate stalwarts as General Electric, DuPont and Microsoft, among others.
While handling both litigation and commercial matters for big companies, Lloyd learned a basic fact of business life: big companies, and big law firms, often overpower smaller competitors with superior legal support. Forming the LAW OFFICES OF LLOYD C. CHATFIELD II is the culmination of Lloyd’s life-long desire to fashion a different kind of law practice, by developing an approach to allow individuals and small businesses to level the legal playing field. Our office is founded on the belief that individuals and small businesses deserve formidable counsel who know exactly how big companies think, how they approach legal issues, and how their practices can be adapted to support individuals and small businesses.
