Brown Rudnick LLP Creates Counselor-in-Residence Program
Last week, New England Council member Brown Rudnick LLP officially launched their new Counselor-in-Residence program, which will serve as a way for the company to better fulfill the needs of clients who would like individual review of their intellectual property strategy—particularly those in the region’s thriving life sciences sector.
The program is designed as a full-time position, where an attorney from the firm is focused solely on one client. The senior attorney is then able to work on-site with the client. In addition to receiving individualized legal assistance, the clients are also afforded with a project price rather than hourly rates, which is intended to save clients money. The new service is available in one-week to six-month residencies, and is customizable based on the needs of the client.
“Being on-site with a client completely changes the relationship between client and lawyer. For the client, instead of having fees and hourly rates on your mind, you’ve got solving the problem on your mind. And, as an attorney, I become completely immersed in helping the client, 24 hours a day” explained Alan Sherr, the first counselor-in-residence from the firm.
The New England Council wishes Brown Rudnick much success with this new initiative and commends the firm for its efforts to better serve their clients.
