We are a highly collaborative team of trusted business advisors who are tirelessly committed to being strategic, "get to yes," proactive problem-solvers. We invest the time and resources to develop a deep understanding of your businesses' challenges and opportunities, resulting in long-lasting, trusting relationships with your company's leadership team and customized and readily implementable advice. Notably, our Outside General Counsel team members have substantial experience as both in-house and outside legal counsel in various industries and pride ourselves on being "businesspeople who went to law school" versus traditional, highly risk adverse lawyers.
