D|K: Your Outside General Counsel — From the Boardroom to the Courtroom
Thank you for visiting our booth at the Association of Corporate Counsel Conference on November 4 and 5, 2021. Hopefully you are enjoying the complimentary honey and, if you grabbed it, the whiskey too.
Many folks are not aware of the many benefits of consuming raw, local honey. Of course, the benefits are by no means one size fits all. At Davis|Kuelthau, we approach our client collaborations in the same manner. First, we assess the client’s needs and current understanding of the options available. Second, we offer a customized solution based on those variables and our broader depth of experience and understanding.
As we stated on our booth gift, D|K cares about your company and you. Clients hire us for corporate wellness, litigation, and individual wealth preservation. And we meant what we said, we welcome the opportunity to work with you.
