A practical alternative to hiring a full-time attorney is to hire an outside general counsel who knows your company and understands how to balance legal considerations with business demands. Most large corporations have “in-house” lawyers who are full-time employees of the corporation.
These lawyers become extremely familiar with the corporation’s business and can therefore not only handle corporate formalities and generic legal issues, but can customize their legal counsel to the organization’s specific business objectives. At our firm, we fulfill a similar role for smaller businesses that do not have the resources (or do not want to incur the cost) to have “in-house” legal counsel. We offer the same practical legal advice, strategic counsel, and peace of mind you would receive from an in-house General Counsel, without the complications of adding a permanent member to your management team. We also offer business clients the expertise of “outside” counsel without incurring the high overhead and multi-tiered staffing of large, expensive law firms. The benefits of using an “outside general counsel” like us can make all the difference in protecting and growing a small to medium-sized business.
