Legal services can be purchased in blocks of 5 to 40 hours per month, depending on each client’s specific legal needs.
In addition to its low hourly rates, gc360° absorbs all routine expenses that law firms traditionally charge back to clients, including copying, faxing, postage, scanning, telephone charges and secretarial overtime.
Friedman began his legal career on Wall Street, representing major corporate clients at Fried Frank Harris Shriver & Jacobson, and Stroock Stroock & Lavan, two prestigious New York-based law firms. He subsequently served as general counsel and secretary of Eclipsys Corporation (NASDAQ: ECLP), a publicly held provider of health information technology.
Friedman most recently served as principal outside counsel to GE Healthcare IT and other Fortune 100 companies on complex contracting matters, and to banks and financial institutions on commercial restructuring and collection matters.
