Douglas E. Singer

Partner

Doug Singer focuses his practice in the areas of corporate law, estate planning and social enterprise law. On the corporate side, he works with privately held businesses and their owners, and has worked extensively with women and minority business owners. His work includes matters ranging from setting up entities to negotiating and drafting contracts to the purchase and sale of companies. Clients particularly value Mr. Singer’s ongoing legal advice in the context of business and strategic considerations. His relationship-based approach enables him to understand the history, direction and goals of his clients. 

In estate planning, the hallmark of Mr. Singer’s approach is effective communication – active and careful listening, and explaining complex concepts in plain English, not legalese. 

In his social enterprise practice, Mr. Singer works with companies that are as much about making a difference in the world as making money – in other words, companies pursuing significant initiatives designed to have social or environmental impact. He creates and works with benefit corporations and benefit limited liability companies, works with clients seeking to become Certified B Corporations, and advises clients in their development of programs designed to further their mission and impact. Mr. Singer is a frequent author and speaker on the topic of social enterprise, impact investing, social entrepreneurship and corporate social responsibility.

Prior to joining Hollis Laidlaw & Simon, Mr. Singer worked with Webster & Sheffield and Stroock & Stroock & Lavan in New York City. Thereafter, he was a co-founder and principal of Falcon & Singer P.C. and later the founder and Managing Member of Singer Law PLLC. 

Mr. Singer has an AVⓇ Peer review rating from Martindale-Hubbell.
