“As Group Director for North America with Fundraising Initiatives, based in Washington DC, I worked closely with General Counsel, P.C. for several years. Their help in securing the necessary permissions and licenses for our Direct Fundraising teams was invaluable and contributed greatly to our ability to recruit donors for our clients across several states. Merritt’s approach saw him really understand our business needs and his advice and guidance was always incredibly useful and supportive. I recommend him and General Counsel without hesitation.”
