Counsel Press Becomes Independent Operating Entity Supported by Investment from The Gladstone Companies

New York City, New York (April 1, 2015) – Counsel Press, the leader in providing appellate support services to attorneys nationwide, begins a new chapter in the company’s history today, marking its separation from The Dolan Company and return to operating as a fully independent entity. As part of the deal, Counsel Press ended a subsidiary business relationship with the former owner and established a relationship with the Gladstone Companies as the new primary shareholder. The newly established entity will operate as Counsel Press Inc.

“This is an incredibly positive day for Counsel Press. We are setting off on the next stage in our company’s history – pursuing our own initiatives and strategies as a fully independent company, after more than 10 years in the subsidiary relationship,” stated Brian Robinson, Esq., CEO of Counsel Press. “I am very proud of Counsel Press’ talented team for ensuring we developed the most robust platform for our company's continued success and advancement. Since 1938, we have served our customers in ways that make a meaningful positive impact on their businesses, and we look forward to further strengthening our leadership position in every area,” Mr. Robinson added.

The transition will occur with no changes to Counsel Press' operational infrastructure, location base, staff or the management team. Given the new shareholder relationship with the Gladstone Companies, a board of directors will be formed to focus solely on Counsel Press' business operations and strategic opportunities for growth and development, within both the highly specialized appellate services markets, as well as within the broader legal services industry.
