CLO Program

Human Resource and Employment Law Peace of Mind


Small and medium-sized companies get in problematic situations with employees, including litigation, too often. The reason for this is that employers are simply not prepared and do not have proper HR and employment law infrastructure in place protecting their organization.

Companies also delay preparing their companies for all Human Resource and Employment Law issues to avoid potential costs associated with legal fees. However, this causes more extensive fees down the line when workplace issues are not properly addressed.

Introducing our Chief Legal Officer (CLO) Program ™, making proactive legal preparation more accessible for business of all sizes.

The CLO Program provides companies with the peace of mind to focus on running and growing their businesses, while our knowledgeable team of legal professionals navigate the human resource and legal issues with the companies’ employees.

Resorting to improper advice to save on legal fees often leads businesses to experience increased costs; whether this stems from having to implement mass new operational procedures to avoid future legal problems or worse, facing litigation.

How will the CLO Program Benefit your Business?

Getting straightforward, practical legal advice should be simple. Having the assurance of obtaining legal advice from one of our experienced and skilled lawyers, acting as your Chief Legal Officer on deck, at a lower cost than traditional legal models, will allow you to be proactive and avoid costly legal battles down the line.

We are the filter between your employees and your business, handling all legal issues that arise throughout the course of employment so that you can focus on your business.
