Any time one of my vendors or affiliates get sued, I contact Chris & James because I know that my valued relationships with those referrals are in good hands, and will survive the lawsuit.
Equipment Lessor,
Global Legal Law Firm has helped our retention of valued merchants tremendously. Due to Global Legal Law Firm, we have observed a substantial increase on the quantity of merchants that decide to come back on board and continue processing withPayment Systems once Global Legal Law Firm is involved. Global Legal Law Firm has also helped train our Customer Service department to keep retention rate up and our attrition rate down. We foresee a substantial decrease on the losses to the company directly related to Global Legal Law Firm’s training, performance, and direct involvement. Thank you Chris and James!
Chaz Webb and Lilia Lomeli Payment Systems, Customer Service and Retention
I went to Global Legal Law Firm’s offices for intensive training on customer service, retention, and legal rebuttal training. I was a little intimidated by visiting a fancy law office. But when I got there, I quickly realized how welcoming and down to earth they were. I felt right at home and learned so much. They taught me how to handle every situation, and now know how the smallest slip up can change a small problem to a huge one. After the trip I was able to create a systemic company policy that has increased our profits. We do not give in to each merchant that threatens us with a lawsuit; we have full confidence in our contracts, rebuttals and procedures. But if it does escalate, I can relax knowing that Global Legal Law Firm will take care of the rest.
Jessica Finnegan, Entrust Customer Service
It has been my pleasure working with Global Legal Law Firm for over four years. Their high level of service, quick response, and professionalism is unparalleled within the legal arena. I have used Global Legal Law Firm’s legal expertise for personal matters also, and truly value all the effort and talent that they have applied. It is also a great benefit and bonus to our employees to have Global Legal Law Firm available at an affordable rate to help them with their personal issues. I highly recommend their services for ISOs and MSPs, and for other legal problems.
Keith Olmo Payment Systems, Vice-President of Sales
Global Legal is the best group of attorneys that I have worked with after 40 years in the industry. They both protect and pursue my interests at a fair rate.
ISO Owner,
The demands of an in-house counsel do not allow for the time to litigate every case. Chris and James’s rates allow my legal department to contact Global Legal Law Firm any time that we are threatened with or consider filing a lawsuit. We highly value their expertise and sound advice.
In-House Counsel for Large ISO / MSP,
