Virtual Paralegal Services (“VPS”) provides paralegal assistance to legal departments for paralegal projects (i.e., reviewing contract or lease files, organizing e-files, organizing company records books, managing subsidiary reorganizations, assisting in due diligence, post-merger clean-up, etc.).
VPS differs from traditional temporary or contract help because we establish a client relationship. When you call VPS you always speak with Denise Annunciata, VPS paralegal coordinator or your assigned paralegal. Since all VPS paralegals are senior paralegals with substantial corporate experience and training, we can quickly become an extension to your team and you can be confident that your projects will be handled professionally and in a timely manner.
VPS is a highly efficient, economical way to keep your legal budget under control, while maintaining the excellence you demand of your in-house legal group.
