Who I Am


I am a former Big Law and Tesla attorney now with my own firm

I have 25 years of experience helping companies negotiate their equipment, services and licensing contracts.  I have the experience and expertise to advise you on what really matters to protect and grow your business.  

I help energy companies with equipment, operations and technology contracts and issues

I get so much joy from working with clients to develop strategy and craft the words to achieve their goals for the deal.

I find contract drafting and negotiation to be so much fun.

You'll receive cost-efficient legal advice for your commercial contracts and operations. whether I'm working on a deal that is simple or complex, routine or strategic, valued at a thousand dollars or a billion. 


"Patience and Clarity of a Teacher"

"Ms. Frederick provided excellent guidance on a contract I was having difficulty understanding.  She took me through the document with the patience and clarity of a teacher.  I felt like I had an advocate in the process and would definitely recommend her as well as use her services again myself."

"Any Client Will Be in Good Hands"

"I've had the pleasure of working with Laura as a colleague in Tesla's Supply Chain. She is professional, well-spoken and courteous in negotiations, and has the experience and skills to close business deals quickly with advantageous terms. I'm sure with her new company any client will be in good hands."

"Thoroughly Explains What Is Important"

"Laura understands contracts in depth without making them over complicated. She thoroughly explains what is important and how best to negotiate the details. I gained valuable experience from working with her and would recommend her to any individual or company considering engaging her for their assistance."
