Tim approaches client advising from a practical standpoint, balancing proven strategies with creative opportunity. He provides proactive legal guidance in plain terms. Throughout deal-making and transaction execution, it’s easier to keep what you already have than to recover it after it’s lost. His services are tailored to meet the needs of each client in terms of timing, complexity and budget.
Tim merged the Schirmang Law Practice into CMRS in 2020 after a decade operating independently, in partnership under Berre, Schirmang, Schmid, and again independently after starting a family. His experience includes hundreds of small business clients, transactions and matters as outside general counsel. Building a legal practice from scratch provided hands on experience of the challenges that many business owners face, including brand creation + marketing, sales, service delivery, operations + cash flow oversight, client/customer management, and government + tax compliance. Throughout the evolution, the core focus has remained unchanged: practical, modern guidance for small businesses and their owners.
Personal and community
When away from the desk, Tim spends most of the time chasing kids and projecting around the house, tinkering in his workshop, or pursuing one of his myriad hobbies. He stays active in the Hyde Park East business association, including leading the effort to rebuild unique, century-old masonry piers as a labor of love of architecture and history.
