Our Approach

Your outsourced
General Counsel

With an outsourced general counsel, you gain the advantages of having an in-house business attorney at a fraction of the cost.  


We are proud to represent clients in exciting fields of work and ventures including sports & entertainment and tech startups.


Dispute Resolution Is A Necessary Evil

Although we often counsel our clients to avoid litigation, sometimes it is inevitable.  When this happens, we focus our efforts on how the legal issues, business issues, and client objectives intersect with one another at the beginning of a dispute.  Doing so brings clients greater clarity of expectations and procedural issues throughout the dispute resolution process.

This is what you should expect from anyone claiming they are a “business attorney” or litigator.

We have litigated before federal, state, and administrative courts.  Our experience goes all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, where David played a significant role in the South Carolina State Ports Authority winning its case in FMC v. SCSPA in 2002.
