General Business Counsel Law Firm in Miami The Legal Protection Your Business Needs

General Counsel: Use Trembly Law on an “As Needed” Basis

Throughout the greater Miami area, and across the nation as a whole, common practice is for businesses to hire in-house counsel on a continuous, full-time basis. While this approach may seem like it confers certain benefits, fact is that this practice is often a net negative from a financial perspective. Hiring a full-time in-house counsel usually means giving out a hefty yearly salary, and this is true regardless of how busy your in-house counsel may be.

Brett Trembly was the first litigation attorney in the South Florida region to advocate the practice of using a lawyer on an “as needed” basis rather than an in-house basis. Other firms have attempted to emulate the as needed approach advocated by Mr. Trembly, but no other firm has the experience and skill in this area as the Trembly Law Firm.
