Outside General Counsel Services

___

 

In many circumstances, an attorney does not step into a situation until a corporate client is faced with a problem.  This often results in increased legal fees, costs, time and energy.  By being proactive, however, and retaining an attorney to act as the company's outside general counsel, a business can avoid many major problems before they arise.

When we act as outside general counsel for our business clients, we become familiar with their businesses and how they operate.  When we are familiar with the business, as well as the individual owners, members, shareholders, etc., we can create better strategies for protection of the business and determine issues that may come up.  We work with our clients to come up with a plan that will work for their particular business and offer monthly fee arrangements so that the client knows what to expect financially with no surprises.

We offer our business clients a scope of services that can include the following:
 

  • Review of corporate structure and possibly restructure to ensure maximum legal protection

  • Draft employee handbooks and corporate policy on risk management

  • Draft employment agreements, non-disclosure agreements and non-competition agreements

  • Draft, review and negotiate commercial contracts

  • Advise regarding day to day operational issues

  • Devise the best legal means to implement business goals

  • Counsel officers and directors on fiduciary duties

  • Regular meetings to keep clients updated and lines of communication open

  • Trademark and other intellectual property protection

  • Defend and/or prosecute all claims involving the corporate entity

  • Maintain corporate records and corporate governance documentation
