2020… well that was something wasn’t it?  It is amazing how much the world has changed over the past few months.  The COVID-19 pandemic has forced businesses across the globe into a balancing act – protecting the health and safety of their employees while simultaneously struggling to keep their own operations a float.  Family life has changed with entire households battling for Wi-Fi bandwidth and office space inside the home.  Suddenly “pivoting” is a dirty word and “zoom fatigue” is the latest challenge.  It has been an all hands-on deck type of year.

Well cheers to 2021!  This New Year’s Eve join us in saying goodbye to 2020 and start out 2021 with a clean slate by celebrating the launch of Navigant Law Group! That’s right, Waltz, Palmer & Dawson is starting 2021 out with a bang!  We have a new office, new logo and … hey why not just go for it – a whole new name!

“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” – Socrates

Entrepreneur says now is the time to “focus on the future”. “We mean spending time to create a vision for the future of the company, beyond the next quarter or even the next year. If your organization has already gone through the steps to define a mission and vision, this should be the focus of the top team.”

And that is what we have done.

Introducing Navigant Law Group, LLC.  Why Navigant?  The word summarizes the mission of our firm perfectly.  The traditional Latin translation means “to sail” or “to navigate”.  Urban Dictionary defines it as tool used to generate directions or assist in navigating between fixed points.  Between those two definitions… that’s where you find us.  Whether you are making plans for your estate or charting out your business plan, you need someone who knows the ropes and is a trusted source to help you navigate between where you are today and where you want to be tomorrow.

“The winds and the waves are always on the side of the ablest navigators.”      – Edward Gibbon

Introducing a new logo and name during a pandemic (not to mention moving offices too – go big or go home people!) may seem like a …. but hey, let’s not forget we started our firm in 2008 – on the eve of the worst economic disaster since the Great Depression. We passed that test with flying colors, so moving offices in the middle of a pandemic? Please… we’ve got this!

Navigant Law Group is now be located at 3030 Salt Creek Lane, Arlington Heights, Illinois. While we are still working out of our temporary space at Suite 121, we hope to be in our new home, Suite 330, in February, 2021.  We cannot wait to show off our new offices as soon as they are ready, so stay tuned for more updates on that!

“I am not afraid of storms, for I’m learning how to sail my ship.” – Louisa May Alcott


According to Success, in history books, the year 2020 will be recorded as one massive, extended global disruption where so many of us were at loose ends.  The world has been whacked with a global pandemic, prolonged economic uncertainty, profound political and social discord, and ubiquitous protests of all kinds. It felt like we were all being forced to walk the plank.  Nobody knows for sure what the future will look like. Mark Cuban thinks some small businesses have an advantage over larger companies that might tend to be more focused on protecting their legacy businesses. “They can’t be as agile as a small business can,” he’s explained. “If you’re competing with larger companies who maybe can work on smaller margins, maybe you can work on smaller margins because you’re lean and mean.”

“Everything in life has some risk, and what you actually have to learn to do is how to navigate it.” – Reid Hoffman

2021 will be a new year. It’s time to rock the boat.  During the choppy waters of the past year, what emerged was the importance of embracing resilience and innovation. What we all witnessed was a collective effort to make it through together.
