Paradigm Legal Group is a Chicago-based law firm focused on providing high quality legal services to new economy companies. Our philosophy is to seek practical business solutions to disputes and contractual issues faced by organizations at various stages in their evolution. Paradigm serves as primary outside counsel or as special project counsel to privately held and publicly traded companies which desire representation on either an ongoing or temporary basis.
The firm has a proven track record of success in helping its clients address the complex issues that arise from the convergence of law, business, and technology. Our strength in key legal disciplines — intellectual property, corporate transactions, commercial contracts, regulatory compliance, human resources counseling, and information technology — allows us to provide a wide range of services to clients in diverse industries, including retail, professional services, financial services, telecommunications, and high technology.
For companies that have a general counsel or in-house staff, we act as overflow attorneys, providing additional legal depth, at a significantly lower cost than larger law firms — without the need for supervision required by contract attorneys from temporary staffing agencies. We also provide assistance to organizations when their legal departments are in flux — bridging the gap during maternity, family, or disability leaves, merger and acquisition related changes, or other periods of organizational uncertainty or turnover.
For companies without an in-house legal staff, Paradigm serves as primary outside counsel handling the legal function at an executive level. In this capacity, we perform the day-to-day legal work and manage the legal services provided by specialized outside counsel.
Paradigm offers significant experience as in-house counsel, giving us an in-depth understanding of the issues confronting the management teams of successful businesses. We can be relied upon to handle multiple tasks under tight deadlines. When requested, we provide on-site service, allowing for a complete integration of our expertise with a client’s law department or management team. The end result — Paradigm’s understanding of client businesses and our flexible structure provides you with the high-quality legal expertise you need, at a fraction of the cost of hiring a full-time general counsel or relying exclusively on large law firm counsel.
