Q. What types of contract assignments will be available to attorneys through McCormack Schreiber Legal Solutions?

A. Contract attorneys today are often used to staff large scale legal matters, including massive document review and corporate due diligence projects; however, as mentioned earlier, we believe that attorneys available on a contract basis have been grossly overlooked for other types of matters, and it is our goal to increase awareness of the tremendous capabilities of this new generation of contract attorney. We have staffed contract attorneys on more substantive, high-level legal assignments, including legal research and writing, contract and lease drafting and review, corporate governance, and securities and other regulatory compliance.

We will encourage, support and facilitate the process of placing you as a permanent employee with any of our clients, should that be the shared goal of the candidate and the client.
