ADP collaborates with start-up and established animal rights and protection organizations and advocates principally on two fronts:
- Providing legal and other professional consulting services directly in support of our clients' mission-specific animal protection work; and
- Working with our clients to identify and address their internal organizational and operational needs and goals
ADP functions as both outside general counsel and consultant, assisting clients on a range of issues, including non-profit compliance, litigation management, oversight and consulting, fundraising, state registrations, entity organization and structure, dispute avoidance and resolution, communications, employment best practices and disputes, contract drafting, review and negotiation, human resources, social media, intellectual property protection and rights clearance.
Our organizational consulting work covers, as examples, board/executives/employee relationships and dynamics, business and strategic long and short-term planning, leadership mentoring, internal and external communications and crisis management.
By remaining independent, we are free of constraints that lawyers and professionals who represent or work within a particular group can sometimes face. We are highly discrete, scrupulous about preserving client confidences and avoiding conflicts of interest, and are unconcerned with credit or attribution.
