How Can Paragon Help In-House Groups Retain Talent? Surveys confirm the obvious-when attorneys cannot achieve effective work/life balance, they often leave their jobs.

We've helped numerous in-house groups keep their attorneys happier by providing talented attorneys to assist with overflow work and help balance workloads, giving everyone a chance to have more of a life!
