Government contracts

All too often companies take the risk of flying legally blind. Emerging start-ups and growing firms of all sizes often require legal counsel but can't afford the expense of hiring in-house lawyers with the skills and business savvy critical to play a vital role in a firm’s senior management team. At the same time, these companies resist calling outside counsel for fear of running up a steep bill just to say hello.

For this reason, the firm offers sensible, predictable approaches such as monthly retainers or fixed fees to enable clients to plan their legal expenditures—making the experience and wisdom of nearly 20 years of practice a ready resource for achieving your business goals.
