Lawyers as Service Providers

Renne Law was formed to address the individual and business client’s needs and to focus on the client's objectives in delivering quality legal work.  As service providers lawyers should be talking about timeliness, efficiency, cost effectiveness, and quality as factors in the practice of law and the delivery of solid legal advice.   Chris Renne will work for you and focus on turn-around times, expectations, potential risks, and results to align the legal advice with your business goals and objectives.   

Background and Goals

Chris Renne has been licensed in Texas and California for 20+ years working as a civil litigator and has worked in law firms in both states.    Her practice areas have included complex commercial litigation, shareholder disputes, transportation, construction, oil field services, legal and professional malpractice, property, maritime, scuba diving and equine related litigation and consulting. Chris has seen first hand the evolution in the emerging business models, structure, client needs and is innovating her legal practice to keep up with these changes, which was the motivation for opening Renne Law. Today’s law practice needs to be responsive and streamlined.  Clients want the attorney they hire to be the one that provides them the answer in a timely efficient manner.  There will always be a place for standard hierarchical law firms; however, there are many businesses emerging and growing today in which the law firm is an outdated and inefficient mechanism for providing the necessary legal advice.  Renne Law is ready to align the practice of law to achieve your business objectives.

Chris developed her respect and interest in the judicial system and passion for justice and hard work from growing up in a household where various aspects of the law were everyday topics of conversation.   Her mother, Louise Renne, served as San Francisco City Attorney for 12 years, was a member of the Board of Supervisors, and now has a public law practice.  Her father, Paul Renne, was  a litigation partner at a large national law firm.   He now sits on the Ethics Commission is an arbitrator, mediator and visitng judge.   Both parents continue to work and enjoy reputations as dedicated, concerned and eithical legal practitioners whose passion is serving those in need.  Chris gained knowledge, respect, a stong work ethic, passion for justice and for serving and giving all to every case from these role models.
