1. Less Headaches
Less headaches are the #1 way outside general counsel makes life easier for our clients. With great outside general counsel—ideally hired before problems arise—the client gets professional, experienced catastrophe prevention. Outside general counsel will draft airtight contracts, make sure the business avoids any obvious problems, and set the business up to deal with issues quickly and professionally. You might not always see the benefit of hiring outside general counsel, but your head will for sure feel it if you don’t.
Clients can rest assured that they can obtain legal advice and discuss legal issues knowing that those conversations will be protected by the attorney-client privilege. Freedom to work through sensitive issues confidentially ensures the safety of your business.
3. Business First
The outside general counsel’s primary focus is working for the success of your business. This makes life easier during partnership disagreements, executive conflicts, or board negotiations. Your outside general counsel is there to protect the security and longevity of the business.
4. No News Is Good News
Another benefit of obtaining outside general counsel is they can act as the business’s registered agent. This allows the outside general counsel to receive legal mailings directly and review them, saving only the most important matters for the attention of the owners. This frees up time and energy to focus on other things, all while knowing your interests are being cared for behind the scenes.
5. Mischief Managed
The best business lawyers make their clients’ lives so easy that the lawyers seem unnecessary. With an attorney filtering your legal materials, often an issue is handled and resolved before the business owner even knows it happened. This can prevent stress, decrease decision fatigue, and lighten the overall burden on the business owner and executive team.
6. Year After Year
Great outside general counsel develops a working relationship that continues throughout the many phases of the business. In a flat-fee annual arrangement, we conduct an initial audit to get to know you, your business, and your legal needs at the beginning of the attorney-client relationship. We also conduct an annual audit process to anticipate and evaluate potential legal and regulatory issues.
