I  have regional or national needs, why should I choose a Your House Counsel® firm over a regional or national law firm?
In a regional or national firm, you have one relationship Partner in one city who is the point person for your work. While your work is very important to that person and perhaps his or her local office, it is less so to those at branch offices not receiving origination credit for your work. Also, all branch offices are not created equal. The service will generally differ from office to office. With a Your House Counsel® firm each firm has a relationship Partner responsible for and invested in your work. In addition, each firm is vetted to be sure that it is indeed a known quantity in its jurisdiction.
