Law that works for business



At Cognition, we do business differently. We don’t have a mahogany-panelled boardroom. An army of receptionists. Or portraits of our founders hanging on the walls. We don’t typically wear suits and ties. Charge for photocopies, disbursements and travel costs. Overstaff your files. Or bill extra for working at your place if you want it.

What our new model firm does have is a team of highly experienced and skilled lawyers offering first-class business legal counsel either on-site or off-site, on a flexible, as-needed basis – at up to
 70% less than the cost of comparable resources in a traditional “bricks and mortar” law firm. By eliminating the overhead costs, inefficiencies and headaches of dealing with Big Law and/or expenses and hassles associated with hiring additional full-time employees, we save businesses a lot of money. And by giving the lawyers who engage with us control over their schedules, we also save marriages, not to mention, sanity. That’s the bottom line.
