It is easy to find a personal injury firm. They are everywhere – with numerous advertisements on television, billboards located throughout the city. Similar statements can be made for divorce and/or immigration counsel. Outside of these practice areas, however, it is difficult to find counsel that can help satisfactorily resolve a complex civil litigation matter or help establish a new entrepreneurial enterprise and/or help it navigate the maze of start-up considerations. Historically, the primary solution would be to engage a large firm that encompasses several separate departments required to service the needs of a new or existing business, thereby requiring interaction with different attorneys working on distinct projects to accomplish a client’s goal of advising, protecting and defending. While commonplace, such legal service models are neither efficient or cost effective for the client.

Granted, these inefficient and ineffective models have existed for years – failing to provide the maximum value to clients that seek, and often require, help in order to maximize their opportunities to succeed.
