About Me

Ben Brickweg is a small business attorney and the author of the Do-It-Yourself Business Sales Guidebook. He has counseled numerous owners of small privately held businesses on valuation, exit strategy and other strategic transaction related matters. At a young age, Ben started a company to execute promotional marketing initiatives for outdoor sports companies. During college, Ben worked on projects for national marketing agencies on big fancy client accounts. Then he transitioned to helping small companies develop marketing, financial, and technology strategies. After earning his MBA, Ben focused on helping entrepreneurs buy and sell small businesses with a national business brokerage firm. After a few successful years of brokerage experience, Ben enrolled in law school and formed Venator Business Advisors to continue assisting entrepreneurs with exit strategies and selling businesses. In 2012 Ben formed Mercator Law Firm to help entrepreneurs and small business owners with transactional legal services. He was frustrated because the traditional law firm business model just didn’t work for small businesses. The billable hour model kept entrepreneurs from seeking the legal advice they needed for fear of generating bottom-line-killing invoices for legal fees. Ben is a licensed attorney and also holds a BS in Business Administration and an MBA in Strategic Marketing.
