Virtual General Counsel

Virtual General Counsel

You are at the crossroads faced by many fast-moving businesses – not big enough, yet, to have a large in-house legal department but growing at a rate that requires specialized advice for both routine legal work and larger projects. That’s where we come in. Our Virtual GC solution provides you with unlimited access to dedicated counsel and our deep expertise, across various fields of law, to optimize your company’s performance.

How it Works
No solution is “one size fits all” so our engagement starts with a detailed discussion of objectives, pain points and success metrics for our work together. Our scalable services can include:
  • Development of a legal business plan, with key targets.
  • Day-to-day legal advice, including review and preparation of general legal correspondence and standard form agreements.
  • Regular attendance at management meetings and ongoing strategic consultation and advice.
  • General advice on commercial, regulatory, IP, employment/HR, marketing, competition, advertising and risk management issues.

How Clients Benefit
  • Cost-transparent access to expertise: Our fixed fee model provides access to any expertise within scope, anytime.
  • It’s a partnership: We gain your confidence in a low-risk way, while learning the business to enable us to better support you should a larger legal issue arise.
  • Extending and growing your in-house team: Our clients have seen success with this model in training and “stretching” both their in-house legal and business resources, while also freeing them to provide the most value-added support to the business.
