New York, NY – June 14, 2017 — HIGH PERFORMANCE COUNSEL MEDIA GROUP (HPC) today announced the addition of new Advisory Board members reflecting deep legal industry expertise and perspective.

Priced to be accessible to all participants, it is part of a broader strategy of opening up news and coverage within the industry – leveling the playing field for the majority of participants with limited budgets.

Each of the new Advisory Board members brings unique insights and experiences of the legal industry in their various capacities as clients, practitioners, founders, analysts, commentators, technology advisers, investors and media.
