Over the years, we have found that many clients that are too small to hire an in-house counsel benefit from our General Counsel Service. This service provides the following services for a fixed monthly fee that is based on the company's size and legal needs.

• We answer questions over the telephone that do not require extensive legal research

• We review and revise standard industry contracts

• We meet with the Client quarterly to generally review the client's business practices

• We will send out the first collection letter demanding payment on any overdue account


We review so many standard industry contracts that we are able to offer online review of these contracts at very reasonable prices. Most contracts take between two and five hours to review. If the review will take longer than five hours, we will call you with an estimate prior to beginning the work. Simply email us the contract (preferably in Microsoft® Word format) and we will redline it with our comments and email it back to you, usually within 48 hours. After the client receives the redlined version, we will go through the contract with the client to answer any questions. We are also available to directly participate in the negotiations.


Due to our staff's extensive experience in working for and with AEC firms, we can bring a seasoned view during an audit, due diligence review, claims mitigation/workout or governance process. Whether you are a private equity firm looking to acquire an AEC firm, or a company in need of improving your processes and procedures, we can assist in bringing state-of-the-art processes to your particular situation.
