There Are Two Ways To Proceed

The In-House Counsel Experience™

 

Our goal with this flagship platform is simple: we build strategic partnerships with our clients by providing round-the-clock access to their trusted advisor for a set number of hours per month in exchange for a modest recurring fee. Our clients have immediate access to their qualified business attorney without the overhead of an expensive attorney on staff. Each plan is individually tailored and contemplates each client’s budgetary constraints as well as the ebbs and flows of their legal needs. Indeed, we are very flexible with your hours – if you have time left over at the end of a particular month, we will roll that time over into the following month. This approach is refreshing to our clients who appreciate the ability to budget their legal needs over a fiscal year while having a partner that is committed to growing in their business.

We are passionate about entrepreneurship and providing business solutions to our clients that allow them to do what they do best – grow their company. It would be our pleasure to discuss how your business will benefit from our The In-House Counsel Experience™.
