Services » Quarterbacking Your Complex Legal Issues
When you are faced with a large, complex or multi-dimensional problem, the first and most important decision you must make is who you are going to hire to solve it. Often, the problem can seem highly complex and overwhelming. A problem can have several different aspects rolled into one. A single problem can have labour, tax, M&A, international trade and regulatory aspects. No one person can respectably claim to be the foremost expert in each of these areas. As a result, a corporation or individual facing complex and multi-dimensional problems will often seek out the services of a law firm.
Many individuals or corporations facing complex and multi-dimensional problems feel that a large law firm is best equipped to handle their problem. The thinking behind this is that a law firm will have several specialized departments, each of whom practice in an area that the problem is concerned with. Respectfully, we do not think that this is the best approach. The fact that a law firm has one department that is best suited to a specific area, does not mean that all of that firm’s departments are top of the line. Additionally, when a firm is given free rein over your problem, your file is at significant risk of passing from department to department at a significant and inefficient cost. Frequently, each department focuses on their aspect of your problem, while no one is focusing on obtaining a global and overall solution to your problem. Costs can quickly spiral out of control. Clients will often be shocked to discover that dozens of lawyers they have never met or heard of have worked and billed significantly on their file. Instead, we suggest a different approach which is designed to avoid this: quarterbacking.
