Our client, a Fortune 500 financial services company that generates $10.5 billion in revenue, experienced an unexpected influx of technology contracts and was in need of interim attorneys to provide strategic support and high-level expertise. Specifically, they needed attorneys who were available on a contract basis and who specialized in drafting, reviewing and negotiating technology contracts such as software licenses, service agreements, task orders and NDA’s.
Hire Counsel Solution
After meeting with the client’s key stakeholders we put together a long term strategy utilizing our Specialized Project Attorneys, to support their Legal Department as well as their Contracts Management Department. We quickly identified a rich pool of qualified attorneys who were available on a part-time and as-needed basis. The candidates worked on-site or remotely, depending on the need, and provided continued support during unexpected increases in workflow, attorney vacations and absences.
