General Counsel Services:
Affordable Plans for Protecting & Growing Your Business.

Growing businesses have day-to-day legal issues that need to be addressed. Unfortunately, most businesses cannot afford to hire a full-time in-house attorney as “general counsel” or have experienced attorneys in most areas of law. As a result, many critical issues are put off or delegated to law firms unfamiliar and unconcerned with the business… but which charge excessively high rates. This scenario creates major problems for growing businesses that need ongoing legal support.

Our General Counsel Service Plans (GCS Plans) address this problem by providing businesses with experienced attorneys on an on-going basis. This level of continued support ensures you will have an attorney who will become part of your business advisory team – with the experience to handle strategic issues such as implementing and monitoring legal entities, on-boarding investors and capital resources, hiring and managing employees and independent contractors, establishing customer and supplier relationships, creating and registering intellectual property, handling leasing and licensing arrangement and purchasing or leasing real estate.

Our GCS Plans are provided on a semi-annual subscription basis for a monthly flat-fee. These plans provide business owners with on-going customized legal support under a model which offers significant savings, cost predictability and defined hours of service. This model is a stark contrast to the traditional “retainer model” where companies pay high hourly rates every time a legal issue or question needs to be addressed.

All of our General Counsel attorneys are experienced business attorneys who provide on-going legal support on a variety of business matters. Our GCS Plans offer the following areas of on-going support:
