No matter how small, every business stands to benefit from the advice of qualified legal counsel. Depending on the particular business, the full time services of an in-house attorney may be not necessary or might not be financially feasible. Retaining “outside general counsel” can provide much of the same services as in-house counsel based on the needs of your specific business.
Our firm provides general counsel services to small businesses on a regular basis. We can be retained to advise on day to day legal issues that arise or brought in on a more comprehensive level for specific matters and projects. Our attorneys will get to know your business and understand your goals in order to consistently act with those interests in mind.
What is included in general counsel services?
As outside general counsel we can represent your business in matters of regulatory compliance. Your business might be subject to regulation by various state and Federal laws. As general counsel, we can advise you on how to comply with these laws as well as represent you in any litigation that might arise in the event that your business is accused of not doing so.
Commercial and Business Law
We can also represent your business in the negotiating, drafting and review of business contracts. We can represent you in all business transactions and disputes that arise as well as handle any litigation that results. Our attorneys can also attend business meetings and other conferences in order to identify and deal with any legal issues that may come up.
Our firm can assist in the drafting of business policies, employee handbooks and employment contracts. We can also give advice on employment matters, such as taking on new or terminating existing employees, and represent you in any employment conflicts.
There are considerable benefits to choosing outside general counsel as opposed to in-house counsel. Outside general counsel services offer business owners the flexibility to determine the type of representation that is right for their business. They are also much more affordable, especially if a client only requires representation on specific matters.
If you are a business owner and find yourself in need of regular legal counsel, outside general counsel services might be right for you. Call us for a free consultation today.
