Outside general counsel services

Our outside General Counsel service practice was developed as a response to listening clients’ needs and perceiving an emerging trend in the legal service market.  Many developmental stage and mid-sized companies recognize that they could use a dedicated attorney on their squad, but simply do not have the workload to justify the cost of bringing an experienced GC on full-time.   Historically, companies in this position were left farming out all of their legal work to law firms that bill by the hour and taking a “wing it” approach to legal issues as they arose.

We believe there is a better model.  As part of our service, we provide clients with a dedicated, part-time General Counsel with prior in-house experience on a monthly, flat fee-basis.  This can save a company money on their legal spend while at the same time providing a centralized resource for your stakeholders to rely on to guide legal strategy, negotiate contracts and manage disputes.

Some specific legal services included in this service are as follows:

  • Unlimited legal counsel on daily operational and HR matters.
