Eileen Lysaught has been an indispensable part of the HR and Employment Practices strategy for our law firm. We engaged Eileen initially to help us revamp our Employee Handbook and in the process we were able to refine and tailor a series of HR and Employment Practice policies that truly suits our firm and our approach to employee fulfillment and success. On the more nuanced questions regarding proper procedures in hiring or terminating employees, Eileen has always been available to pick up the phone and answer my questions no matter how busy her day has been. We look to the expertise of the Lysaught Law Office to help us navigate the constant changes and adjustments that occur with Employment Laws and we will surely rely on her as the landscape of the working environment continues to grow and evolve. We know we are in good hands with Eileen and the Lysaught Law Office.

I have known Eileen professionally for over a decade, and believe she possess the ideal blend of skills to serve as an outsourced general counsel for small to medium sized businesses. Her MBA from the University of Chicago coupled with a law degree from DePaul serves as the foundation through which Eileen provides sound legal advice, paired with strategic and pragmatic business acumen. Further, Eileen spent 11 years at a large juvenile products company leading the operations and serving as general counsel. In this role, Eileen wore multiple hats in a fast-paced environment that exposed her to many internal and external risks and opportunities of a privately held company. Most clients will find that when consulting with Eileen, she already possesses prior experience dealing with the issue at hand – and if she doesn’t, she will quickly work to understand the risks and provide a thoughtful solution.
Specifically, Eileen has proven herself an expert in contract law, product liability, regulatory affairs and compliance, labor and employment law and business structure. She has assisted BlueStone in the areas of contract review, insurance policy review, employment law, and Human Resource Administration.
Lastly, Eileen’s interpersonal and communication skills make her a pleasure to partner with. I gladly endorse and recommend Eileen and hope that she is as impactful to your firm as she has been to ours.
Lysaught Law Office gives us direct access to an experienced attorney with a broad variety of legal areas who truly understands our business. The in-office placement of a dedicated Lysaught attorney gives us the expertise of a general counsel without the expense of a full-time employee. The firm’s low overhead enables them to charge substantially lower rates than traditional regulatory or corporate firms, resulting in substantial savings to us over the cost of a full-time general counsel.
I’ve known Eileen professionally for over a decade. Her broad range of experience has provided her with a deep understanding of what businesses and their leaders need to be effective and successful in fulfilling their missions. Starting my own business was a daunting task. Insurance, registration, taxes, liability—I didn’t know where to start. Eileen had a handle on my needs almost immediately. She knew the people I needed to contact, how best to contact them, what it would cost, and more. And that was just in the first half hour of our first meeting. Once, I threw something Eileen’s way that she hadn’t encountered before. Before sunrise the following morning—just twelve hours after our meeting had ended—she emailed me a thoroughly researched answer to my question.
Working with Eileen has allowed me to focus my energy on the creative aspects of my business, and I couldn’t be happier with the results.
