Our Corporate-Commercial paralegals assist with activities such as preparing financial services matters, drafting securities documents and registering limited partnerships, as well as tax matters.

Since beginning my career as a legal assistant at TDS back in 2017, the firm has created numerous paralegal positions that didn’t previously exist, opening the doors of opportunity to many of our talented legal assistants to grow in their careers.
