Many companies need the assistance of attorneys with implementing more routine tasks such as: negotiating contracts; performing corporate due diligence; facilitating owners or management meetings; analyzing financing alternatives; or providing sound legal advice on various issues. During the course of our engagements, we often step past the line of an intermittent, project-based attorney into the role of in-house counsel. We cherish that role and are well-equipped to handle such role. In the event a question arises outside of our expertise, we have a large network of colleagues at the most reputable firms in Texas to contact. For example, in a recent transaction Ryan recommended to a client that they should hire a state and local tax attorney from another Dallas law firm. Ryan believed our client would benefit from having an attorney that specializes solely in state and local tax issues, and such attorney was hired for that issue.
