What is a General Counsel?
A general counsel is a lawyer that works for a business to
provide legal services, including reviewing of contracts, leases, and all legal instruments, providing legal representation
year-round, and contributing to corporate strategy.
How does having a General Counsel save costs?
A general counsel provides businesses with significant
cost savings by providing year-round legal services, providing better organization of legal work, reviewing all legal
documents and obligations, assisting with statutory compliance, and other legal work, all at reduced hourly
fees for service.
Many companies have in-house general counsel.
That attorney works exclusively for that company and is on that company's payroll. Every company needs a general counsel
but not every company needs one in-house. Having me on retainer as your general counsel provides you with the same legal
services at a significantly lower financial cost to you. I am not on your payroll, I charge only for the services
that are performed.
