Outside General Counsel
Providing Legal Counsel As An Extension to Your Business
For companies that need ongoing legal advice but are not at a stage to hire in-house counsel, we offer a comprehensive suite of services as outside general counsel. When serving in this role, we work closely with our clients to understand their risks, needs and priorities, and this allows us to provide proactive advice and representation on an as-needed basis.
In addition to substituting for in-house counsel for smaller companies, we also work with many larger company’s in-house lawyers as well. If you need to outsource a particular demand or excess workflow, we can work with you to establish an arrangement that meets your legal department’s demands within its budgetary constraints.
How We Can Help
Our lawyers are experienced in all matters within the business, commercial and corporate law areas. We routinely assist companies of all sizes with matters including:
Contracts, Licenses & Transactions
Many companies need transactional representation on a day-to-day basis. Our lawyers can draft and negotiate customer contracts, vendor contracts, licenses, and other agreements to meet your company’s needs.
Employment Issues & Concerns
Whether your company has one part-time employee or thousands of full-time workers, it has a number of complex obligations in the realm of employment law. We assist companies with employment-related matters from employee screening and employment contract negotiations to investigating allegations of workplace harassment and discrimination.
Crisis Management & Strategic Communications
When a corporate crisis arises, waiting for your company’s legal counsel to get up to speed is not an option. By working closely with our clients on a daily or weekly basis, we are able to position ourselves to respond immediately when emergency scenarios arise. If your company is in crisis, we can help you formulate a plan of action that is custom-tailored to the circumstances at hand, and we can handle all strategic communications on your company’s behalf.
In addition to the services discussed above, we also assist our outside general counsel clients with strategic planning. Whether you are contemplating an acquisition, new product or marketing initiative, recruitment, layoffs, or even a bankruptcy, we can help you make smart decisions and provide the policies, procedures, contracts, and other legal resources you need to move forward.
