Efficiency & Clarity

Lightweight business model means less overhead and less red tape. The result is faster communication so work can be completed quickly and proficiently.

Many big firms and high priced attorneys will take as long as possible to complete tasks in part because the entire industry, both in-house and external counsel, incentivizes it. Not only is it overpriced, but sometimes it takes weeks for lawyers to even get started. WL is determined to streamline the process wherever possible to get started and finished expediently without sacrificing any work quality.
