Mr. Iffergan was a Principal, Co-Founder and Chief Architect of Clearspire, the groundbreaking law firm the pioneered the modern legal service delivery model.
“Our practices focus only on the things we do well, and we know them better than anyone else. We don’t come in to “help you figure it out.” In the areas we practice, we’ve done it before, and we’re here to help you do it, too. We know the market, we know the landscape, we know the technologies and their vendors, we know the pitfalls, and we know the successes.
“Our philosophy is to always provide pragmatic, actionable and specific advice and counsel. When it comes to best practices, we’ve generally developed them. We don’t do ephemeral “Findings Reports;” our Best Practice Reviews will address specific issues with specific courses of action. We’ve worked closely with all of the leading practice management technologies, and our consultants have developed proven and honed implementation methodologies. All of our consultants enjoy a prominent career distinction – our projects always come in on time and on budget.”
