In my capacity as General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer of a firearm company, I have had the privilege to work with Orchid Advisors since its inception. Orchid’s subject matter expertise makes them a valuable resource. Orchid’s focus on client service, and ability to work seamlessly with my teams to operationalize my firearms compliance objectives at a reasonable cost, has made them my ‘go to’ business partner.
