MacDonnells Law how we compare


“When I started working with MacDonnells Law, I knew as much about Law as they knew about cognitive services. What I found was through that genuine interest in how my business works I found that our engagement with MacDonnells see them using industry terminology around service level agreements and I found myself using legal jargon. It really is a two-way partnership that we have with MacDonnells where they seek to understand what we are doing, and in doing so can articulate to us what is appropriate from a legal standpoint. I can call them almost anytime and someone is there to take my call; it’s quite a personable service and that’s what I think makes them very different.”

Doug Stephens, Airbridge Networks CEO
