Our Approach

O+Z was created with a vision for a different kind of practice. Matt Oppenheim and Scott Zebrak worked in “big law,” as well as side-by-side with some of the country’s most prestigious firms while in-house. They launched O+Z to combine the best of their previous experiences with a dynamic, new approach.

O+Z is a boutique firm built around these core principles:

  • We concentrate on practice areas where we have deep experience, we provide exceptional lawyering, and we are among the leaders in our areas of expertise nationwide. We do not try to be all things for all clients.
  • We emphasize real collaboration among colleagues to provide clients with the best representation possible. Our culture of teamwork, integrity, and strategic thinking leads to better outcomes and advice. We check our egos at the door and work together to solve problems and win.
  • We develop deep relationships with our clients. We understand their industries, business models, and challenges. We listen and bring to bear intense effort, focus, and judgment both in the day-to-day and in the strategic long-term.
  • We care enormously about achieving the best results and want to best align our interests and incentives with our clients. Our management structure enables us to make decisions promptly and gives us the flexibility to consider alternative fee arrangements.

We believe our success speaks for itself. We stand out because of our passion for what we do and how we do it.
