About Ben Lambert
Ben Lambert is the founder of Lambert Worldwide and part of a network of attorneys who believe the legal profession is broken. Most firms take a one-size-fits-all approach to their clients and focus on each issue separately, instead of looking at the big picture – all while racking up massive invoices based on hourly billing. Ben, a proud member of the LGBTQ community raised by musicians and small business owners, knows that the business and personal needs of each individual client are unique and must be treated as such. He and his team have created special legal planning systems for entrepreneurs, individuals and families that adapt to the rapidly changing business environment, proactively support future growth and protect against loss.
After law school, Ben took his legal degree and family business background into the world of international business operations. His experience building an entire division of a successful, now venture capital funded, startup was both eye opening and transformative. Though challenging and at times scary, diving in and getting his hands dirty was the best way to learn truly come to understand the needs and challenges businesses and entrepreneurs face every day. He subsequently returned the legal profession and, prior to founding Lambert Worldwide, worked for some of the most prestigious organizations in the world. Now, his daily practices include counseling business owners on legal, insurance, financial and tax foundations, serving as Outside General Counsel and helping individuals and families protect their loved ones and estates.
Ben met his partner while working in Vietnam, one of the five countries he has lived in (in addition to various US states). Together, they spend most of their free time traveling, exploring other cultures and hunting for the best eats in town. Ben also hosts workshops and webinars on business law issues for the modern manager/owner and estate planning for the LGBTQ community.
