Professional Overview

Large companies have legal departments where you can walk down the hall and ask legal questions, get contracts drafted and reviewed, get help with employment matters, engage an attorney in resolving disputes short of litigation, and much more. Small businesses are too small to justify the cost of a full-time attorney. That’s where Vellum LLC steps in. Vellum LLC can be your legal department for a flat monthly fee with a two-year commitment. It has hundreds of small business clients all across Alaska from chiropractors to car shops, lodges to marketing agencies, and everything in between.

Andrew Mitton, Co-Founder of The Eureka Space, provides legal services to small businesses through his company Vellum LLC. Andrew attended the University of North Dakota for law school and then moved up to Alaska with his wife. He worked in a judicial clerkship, a local law firm, and then provided in-house counsel for Alaska Native Corporations. 10 years ago he decided to venture off on his own. He noticed the countless businesses around town with LLC attached to their name and saw the opportunity to be the legal department for small businesses. Vellum LLC breaks from the traditional structure of billable hours and institutional clients and provides an opportunity for small businesses to utilize legal services at an affordable rate and an approachable structure. Vellum LLC actually began in the building that now houses The Eureka Space. Andrew saw the potential for a more impactful space. Andrew joined forces with Robyn Forbes who both worked closely with Architect Bruce Williams from Black + White Studio Architects and Mike Kuchar from Kuchar Construction to bring the concept of the Eureka Space to fruition. Andrew believes if small businesses are thriving, then the local economy is thriving and he’s proud to provide a service that empowers those small businesses.
