I have paid nearly half a million dollars to my associates since starting in 2013. Our reach is global. In the last year, we’ve helped clients with projects involving virtually every Asian country, as well as North American, Europe, Middle East and Africa locations.

There are three big things the big firms have, that we don’t have:

  1. a big headquarters in New York City
  2. revenue targets and rates based on New York City rates
  3. egos the size of New York City

We don’t have 20,000 associates in 60 countries, like the big firms do. But we have the right people in the right places at the right time, when you need them.
