The business world can be a daunting place to navigate. And it is growing bigger and more competitive every day. Every business leader in one way or the other is continuously looking for new ways to push forward faster. Often times this means pushing the envelope. Always finding new ideas.

The ability and the courage to think outside of the box are required qualities for entrepreneurs.

But executing new ideas can also require careful choreography. There are rules we all have to play by – even as “idea” people. And most certainly as employers. 14 West’s Legal Dept. knows the rules well.

The expert services we provide have proven to be critical components in everything from building a business plan, to protecting products for the wide portfolio of companies we support.

Communications

Communication is crucial to the success of any business. But for 14 West, having been founded by some of the most innovative minds in direct marketing, communication is also an important part of our heritage.

We believe in creating real and meaningful relationships with people through the power of language. But we know better than anyone that real communication requires trust – that the better we can understand the audiences we want to capture, the more effective we can be. We know that with every message we have an opportunity to reach someone. And in the same moment, we run the risk of being rejected.

We need to get every message right.

  • Media & Community Relations
  • Internal Communications & Marketing
