Q: What problems do we solve?
A: Our clients use us to “in-source” important legal work (what smart companies are doing now to reduce legal spend). This helps them solve staffing issues such as staffing gaps, overflow support needs and attorney leave. Our attorneys can help your legal department fulfill additional capacity needs, increase productivity and efficiency, and achieve timely results -- all without adding headcount to your full-time staff. We can help you reduce your legal spend or do more legal work at a reasonable, predictable cost. We provide skillful and practical business-oriented advice and solutions to meet your business expectations without "over-lawyering." We can help you do more with less.
