Our founding partners Marbet and Robert “Rob” Lewis worked together for over a decade before committing their efforts to creating a cutting-edge law firm focused on a progressive approach to client representation and employee engagement. Spiritus Law combines core legal disciplines with niche expertise in high risk industries. We take pride in providing our clients with comprehensive representation and collaborative project management.
Whether working with foreign or domestic alcohol manufacturers and retailers or real estate developers on new hotels, bars, nightclubs and restaurants, Marbet and Rob have fostered industry innovation and helped shape many of the regulations governing their clients’ businesses. While the firm has expanded to include core legal disciplines in litigation defense and business transactions, the spirit of the firm remains well defined by its collaborative culture and progressive energy.
Aside from their legal practices, Marbet and Rob also dedicate their efforts to promoting an innovative work place engaged in fostering team diversity and inclusion through collective problem solving and employee engagement in project management and community service. The true spirit of the firm is best defined by its team effort in facilitating client communication, promoting transparency in representation and advancing work-place improvement initiatives.
Built on our founding partners’ commitment to pioneering a novel approach to legal representation, Spiritus Law offers an immersive experience in client representation and team collaboration.
