What is a Virtual General Counsel?
One of the various effective ways we can support you to reduce expenses is by providing legal advice to virtual general counsel. Our virtual legal advisors also approach and support companies with legal tasks. It helps the business to obtain legal aid without the payroll, and other full-time expenses strain on the budget. As an in-house legal team, we get to know your business but only function following your needs. Either on a needed or less-than-full-time basis.
Using Outside Counsel as Virtual General Counsel
We know that, when it comes to obtaining legal counsel, businesses of all sizes prefer different approaches. Most companies are reluctant to hire lawyers from outside. Besides, cautious budgeting for legal needs is standard for smaller companies. It is therefore essential to have immediate access to an attorney who understands your business and is willing to respond promptly to your needs. Even firms with their in-house counsel often need the assistance of a frequent outside general counsel who is familiar with organizational processes and business goals. As a consequence, the solution is to employ Virtual General Counsel.
What We Offer as Virtual General Counsel (Virtual GC) Services
Our company attorneys have extensive experience working in a virtual general counsel and legal advice role for corporations. We partner with in-house counsel to provide specialized expertise across various sectors in all fields of commercial and intellectual property law. Our virtual GCs are flexible, service-oriented and responsive to your legal requirements. We will manage with you to tailor solutions for legal support and payment plans that best fit your budget and needs.
Our Outside General Counsel Services
We can appoint an industry-experienced attorney to integrate seamlessly into your business and serve as your general counsel outside. And, as required on your schedule, we assign a senior management team available on call for strategic consultation, activity management, budget control, and interface.
Having an active legal team collaboration is a critical part of being a successful business. Only if you have a robust legal structure that supports your efforts will your business prosper and grow.
