The Evolution of Counsel
Spruce Law provides “big-firm” quality legal representation with boutique firm service and responsiveness.
Experience. Our attorneys have practiced in some of the largest and most respected global firms, corporate legal departments, and specialty law practices. We are a team of seasoned legal professionals and industry experts, with pedigrees equal to those found at traditional large firms. However, Spruce Law’s unique approach enables us to serve your needs with maximum efficiency.
Innovation. We practice together at Spruce Law because we share a belief that the traditional law firm model is no longer adaptive for most clients and most engagements. You should never pay for on-the-job legal training of inexperienced lawyers or for expensive overhead that has inflated your legal bills. At the same time, you require organized, credentialed, and highly competent counsel on which you can rely to close your business deals, review your contracts, structure your joint ventures, and resolve your litigation. We have listened to what our clients want from their lawyers, and our innovative business model was designed to meet your substantive and budgetary needs.
Efficiency. Your primary business goals and objectives are always the most important aspects of our representation. Our innovative business model incentivizes our lawyers to take the time to understand your business from a 360-degree perspective so that we can appropriately scale each engagement and efficiently achieve your desired results. Whether you are looking for comprehensive representation for a large, multifaceted transaction or high-stakes litigation matter, or just need a quick answer to a simple legal question, we customize each engagement to your precise business needs.
Alternative Fee Engagements. We do not believe in “one size fits all.” Spruce Law is committed to alternative fees and custom engagement structures. We routinely work with C-Suite executives to carefully structure General Counsel Plus (GC+) engagements when a company does not have in house counsel but does have various types of legal needs that are increasing. For companies with more significant legal needs (that may have existing in house counsel), we use our Growth Stage Core Legal Services program to customize an engagement structure to match a client’s precise legal needs. We appoint a “Legal Quarterback” (from amongst our group of highly-experienced, former general counsel) who then carefully manages all of the client’s core legal needs by seamlessly leveraging to a team of experts at Spruce Law in each of the core service areas required to support the legal needs of corporate clients business as it grows (Corporate and IP, Employment, Litigation, and Real Estate).
Spruce Law’s primary service offerings are centered around the core legal needs of corporate clients:
