Sequoia Legal has been helping us with regulatory compliance matters for years now. So far, we have not had a single complaint lodged against us by any patient or entity, and no enforcement actions have been implemented or threatened. I can’t praise them enough.
Our company’s HIPAA compliance system was a poorly constructed time bomb waiting to explode until we contacted Sequoia Legal. With their help, we were able to fix our broken system in just a few weeks. If you are doing business in Colorado, Sequoia Legal is the name to remember.
We retained Sequoia Legal to perform a comprehensive review of our export compliance procedures. As a consequence of their advice, we were able to streamline our procedures to produce a much more effective, virtually error-free system. Would definitely recommend it to any company involved in international trade out of Colorado.
The attorneys at Sequoia Legal were always very accessible to me, and they explained matters to me with more clarity than I expected. Eventually, we were able to obtain an export license that had eluded us for quite some time.
