Legal Services – The Nimble Team Approach

John delivers the corporate legal services personally and assembles the project team with other expertise as he did at national law firms with one important difference. Rather than being captive to available attorneys in his law firm, team members are selected based on the criteria described below.

Nimble Team – Network

Project teams are designed for specific needs with the Client's existing providers and the Firm's independent provider network.

Current Providers

Tax advice by the Client's CPA and advice from the Client's regulatory attorney avoid duplicating costs.

New Providers

Attorneys with complementary practice areas are recommended to the Client based on experience, expertise and responsiveness.
