General Counsel

What General Counsel Can Do For Your Business

Is your business at a stage where you sometimes need legal assistance and guidance but not on a full-time basis? If so, obtaining general counsel may be the next logical step for your company. At Black Lion Services, PLLC, we provide just this type of advice and representation to businesses of all sizes. 

Save Financial Resources

Hiring a full-time attorney to handle its legal affairs is not a financially feasible option for many businesses. However, retaining outside general counsel can provide your business with the assistance and representation needed at a reduced rate. The company obtains the guidance and legal support it requires at a fraction of the cost of in-house legal counsel. 

Allow Employees to Focus on Non-Legal Business Matters

Many high-level executives find themselves performing tasks better regulated to an attorney, such as contract preparation and review. With outside legal counsel, these matters can be addressed by a knowledgeable attorney, allowing business executives to concentrate on other matters related to the business. 

Prevent Legal Problems Before They Arise

By retaining general counsel that understands how your business operates, you can prevent legal problems before they arise. Astute counsel will conduct a legal risk assessment and help you take any precautions necessary to reduce your liability. Being proactive in taking these steps is another way to save your company time and money.

Manage Employees

Employee management and other human resource matters can be sensitive and difficult to handle in-house. Legal counsel can assist in all matters relating to employee management while ensuring compliance with governing rules and regulations. Legal counsel can also review your company’s existing practices towards employees and find ways to reduce liability and be more effective in day-to-day human resource operations.

Acquisition of Business Knowledge

Perhaps one of the most significant benefits of having general counsel is that the longer you work together, the more familiar the counsel becomes with your business’s internal workings. An established working relationship allows the general counsel to provide advice tailored to your company’s specific needs. Also, every time assistance is needed, you will not need to familiarize general counsel with your business’s inner workings as they will already know your history and goals. 

Assist In-House Counsel

Even if your business has in-house counsel, situations may arise where outside help is needed. We can collaborate with company attorneys and assist them in any area in which they require assistance. 

Take The Next Step For Your Company

If your business needs outside legal assistance for any reason, hiring general counsel may be the right decision for your company. Contact the legal professionals at Black Lion Services, PLLC to schedule a consultation so that we can learn more about your business and you can gain an understanding of what we can do for your company. Together, we can develop a plan that will provide your business with the legal representation it needs to flourish.
