We get that your legal needs can change on a weekly, daily, even hourly basis. So can the complexity of the work you need done. We also know that in-house legal departments face constant headcount and budget pressures and that smaller companies and start-ups have limited resources for any legal budget. Frankly, no company can really afford to pay a lawyer to just sit around, let alone for unnecessary, third-party overhead.
That’s why we work for you, only when and as you need us, on-site or off-site. Whether it’s as fractional, supplementary in-house counsel, supplanting outside counsel, temporary counsel during crunch time or project-based counsel.
We don’t have fancy offices, a fine art collection or brass nameplates on our doors. We find our clients are more impressed by the fact that they get meaningful commercial and corporate legal counsel from seasoned, business-minded, lawyers for a fraction of the cost of Big law. Or hiring full time in-house counsel. Or outsourcing overflow commercial work that’s best done in house.
The bottom line?
Making Cognition part of your team eliminates the overhead and inefficiencies you’d pay for with a ‘bricks and mortar’ firm and the recruiting, fixed expenditures and risks associated with a new hire. You get top-tier legal advice you can trust. Without the high price tag. We also go the extra mile by regularly putting clients and contacts together for partnering opportunities or to suggest referrals for employment, consulting or financing needs. Oh yeah, and you get that for free.
