It's been said that having a thorough working knowledge of the law is like having a lethal weapon at your disposal. Similarly, having a stable of skilled, responsive attorneys available whenever the need arises can be a very valuable tool for any business leader. But, not all lawyers are created equally, and of those that are, not every lawyer is right for every job. Knowing which lawyers to hire for which jobs, and establishing an effective, efficient, mutually beneficial relationship with them can be tricky. Lawyers and the legal profession are steeped with stereotypes and traditions that don't always make sense to non-lawyers and most company leaders aren't experts in lawyers and legal issues…but we are!
At Edmond Murray, we know lawyers…because we are lawyers. We can help you identify or hone your specific legal needs, assess the type of legal resources necessary to meet your needs, and locate the right resources for you. We will use our experience in dealing with lawyers and law firms to help you select the most appropriate and responsive outside counsel for your purposes, and then establish billing, reporting, and other parameters that serve your company's best interests, while containing your legal spending to appropriate levels. If you have already retained outside counsel, we can provide your management with an independent assessment of their effectiveness and efficiency, and review their rates and invoices for appropriateness.
