Outside General Counsel

We implement corporate clean up and maintenance, contract review, (including restructuring and negotiation when appropriate), risk analysis and insurance reviews, employee retention plans, trade secret and intellectual property analysis and protection planning to name a few.  We work on tactical measures to minimize risk, protect and preserve assets and build business value.  We help to identify and reduce risk and to implement damage control when issues arise.

Outside General Counsel

Our outside general counsel offering is a packaged service for those clients who need more than occasional transaction support. It works well with clients that have a lot of pressing legal needs, high volume of contracts, or are ready to address their long-term planning needs, including the exit from their business and succession.

We have found that lower-middle market companies usually don’t have the resources to hire an internal legal department, but as they grow, their legal needs become more complex, and their risk of exposure increases. Additionally, as the volume of their legal transactions grow, so does their underlying legal infrastructure.

As an outside general counsel, we provide cost-effective support for the ongoing legal needs of the business, including contract preparation and review, and corporate maintenance and compliance.  More importantly, we work with the business owner to:

  • build the legal infrastructure they need to provide greater protection for their growing wealth;
  • minimize the legal risks that they face;
  • uncover and eliminate business leakage.

Under our Outside General Counsel program we work with the business owner to develop a list of the most important legal needs of the business and to prioritize what needs to be worked on first.  We meet monthly to evaluate progress and to reset the list of priorities, as needed.

This budgeted approach to legal services allows us to not only address the current and ongoing needs of a business and its owner, but to begin the important process of planning for transition and change which includes such areas as Succession, Exit, and Estate Planning.

Our fractional general counsel offering is a packaged service for those clients who need more than occasional transaction support.

We work with the business owner to:

  • build the legal infrastructure they need to provide greater protection for their growing wealth
  • minimize the legal risks that they face
  • uncover and eliminate business leakage.
