Outside General Counsel

Small businesses and start-ups often lack the budget to hire in-house counse or are organized in such a way that an in-house legal team is not appropriate. Even more established businesses might choose not to have in-house counsel due to cost considerations and the inherent difficulty of managing complex legal issues without the larger staff offered in a law firm environment.

I understand both such situations, where, a company struggles with the desire to have seasoned legal counsel “in-house”. I therefore help businesses bridge the gap by offering my services as an "outsourced in-house counsel", advising on the day-to-day operations, participating in meetings, responding to specific requests for advice on general corporate matters, drafting, reviewing and/or negotiating contracts, and even managing litigation.

I provide these services hourly on demand, but also through alternative billing structures such as monthly all-inclusive retainers and project-based flat fees.

Please give me a call if an “outsourced in-house counsel” can help give your business that competitive advantage you need to grow and succeed.
