Helen Quinn, San Francisco

Former Attorney at Wilson Sonsini

UC Berkeley Law School

Select Counsel has been a game changer for my law practice. As a solo practitioner specializing in corporate finance and M&A, I often require expert specialists to step in and advise on issues that are outside of my area of expertise (e.g., labor laws, deferred compensation issues, immigration law). Through Select Counsel, I have access to a network of attorneys who understand the issues of my practice, can support my transactional work, and have the pedigree and experience to garner the immediate trust of my clients. I can offer my clients all of the advantages of a Big Law practice, but get to maintain the independence of my solo practice.

Patrick Richards, Chicago

Former Partner at McDermott Will & Emery

University of Virginia Law School

Select Counsel connects me to other lawyers in the network, through in-person networking events and the online discussion board. The relationships formed through these connections have helped me better serve my clients.

Ivan Wool, New York City

Former Partner at Mintz Levin

Fordham Law School

The Select Counsel network has given my practice and my clients a breadth and scope of expertise that I didn’t think possible for a small practice, as well as a deep and wide geographic reach that even large firms would find difficult to match. My clients have been impressed with the quality and capabilities of the network members.

Lisa Brown, Los Angeles

Former Attorney at Paul Hastings

University of Chicago Law School

All the lawyers in the network spent significant portions of their careers at the big firms, where the training is first rate and client expectations are high. That shared experience has shaped our practices today and provides a common foundation for how we service our clients and the service we offer each other’s clients.
