I am a California-based lawyer. With workload increasing over the last couple of years, a friend recommended Cogneesol’s contract review and management services to me. They turned out to be just the perfect partner in my firm’s growth story. They do an immaculate job of contract examination, and have given me the bandwidth to expand my firm’s clientele.
Cogneesol has been our partner for contract review and management for some time now. Initially, we had started with assignments every other month. But over time, impressed with their timeliness and comprehensive output, we handed over 100% of our contracts to the team. This has worked best for us since it has freed us of valuable time which we would earlier spend in review.
