The environment in which the MLM and direct selling industry must operate has put a premium on effective legal counsel. Direct selling and MLM companies must strategically and tactically prepare for this environment. Such preparation demands a breadth and depth of experience from your attorney in all aspects of corporate operations, as well as in the law of direct selling and multilevel marketing.

The legal services we provide extend far beyond the specific laws surrounding the MLM and direct selling industry. Indeed, our comprehensive legal services are designed to help you successfully navigate the expansive labyrinth of federal, state and international statutes and regulations, as well as the confusing world of contracts, litigation, labor and other law associated with domestic and international business.

Additional services extend beyond what clients typically expect from their attorney, and can help companies achieve their business objectives, ensure their long-term existence and, ultimately, save them money.

The Legal Audit essentially takes and presents a direct selling or MLM company with a legal photograph, or perhaps more precisely, a CAT scan of the legal inner-workings of its organization and operation. To the extent that deficiencies are discovered, the Legal Audit also furnishes clients a prognosis and a remedial course of action.

General Counsel At Your Service(SM) provides direct selling and MLM companies with an attorney for across-the-board, long-term legal support to address the diverse panoply of legal issues that regularly arise in the course of business.
