Frank leads the firm’s outside general counsel service, S&L GC SolutionsTM.  In this capacity, Frank works with a select number of clients providing on-site legal counsel services on a part-time basis.

Frank is ideally suited to provide these services based on his extensive experience as in-house counsel at both public and private companies. His experience spans manufacturing, distribution and technology companies. As in-house counsel, Frank has dealt with matters ranging from routine day-to-day items such as employment issues, contract review, and outside counsel management to strategic matters such as managing acquisitions, overseeing critical litigation, and developing and implementing policies and procedures to mitigate legal risk.
