For Corporate Counsel
We know that different businesses have different levels of in-house legal resources. We appreciate that the responsibilities of corporate counsel can vary dramatically, from full-time legal practitioners to business executives who happen to be lawyers.
We tailor our service to what is needed to maximize the effectiveness of the in-house legal function. We can take on all aspects of a given legal need, provide an external source of review of internal conclusions, or act as an ad hoc resource for areas outside of a client’s comfort zone. KMKSC is focused on providing service in a form most likely to maximize the return in the use of outside counsel and yet minimize the expenditure by your company.
KMKSC attorneys are expected not only to understand an industry, but also the culture of individual clients and the needs of the people with whom we work. We appreciate that our legal advice and assessments may need to be communicated to others within the client, who may not be lawyers. KMKSC attorneys ascertain the forms of communication and advice most appropriate for a given client in particular circumstances. Our objective is to minimize all hidden costs required by providing a legal product in a form that enables informed internal decision making. We also realize that assessments of litigation strategy and liability are best provided early and with accuracy.
A good client relationship requires us to ensure that our clients’ best interests come first. KMKSC does not employ the minimum billable-hours system for our lawyers because we believe that the most effective legal service requires that clients feel free to raise questions and seek advice without concern about a law firm’s minimum-hours policies. We realize that our value is often simply preventing a legal issue from arising. We believe that our approach fosters a depth of trust, understanding and service unusual in today’s legal environment.
All of our lawyers are evaluated on their ability to add value to our clients, rather than on how many hours they are able to bill out to clients in a given month.
