ABOUT OUR TEAM

Our professionals have decades of experience representing clients where the private and public sectors intersect. We create innovative strategies to help define and reach client objectives. While some members of our team are licensed attorneys, RCS provides consulting services, not legal advice. Often, our work complements the legal work of Roetzel & Andress attorneys.
