Many large corporations hire attorneys to serve as in-house, full-time general counsel. This means they will have a lawyer who understands the inner workings of the business and can provide legal advice at a moment’s notice regarding how to minimize losses and legal issues. Smaller companies, on the other hand, often do not have the resources to have a full-time legal advisor, nor might they need one, as legal concerns might arise less frequently. However, it is still critical to ensure you have the right counsel when a legal matter does come up. This is when your company might benefit from outsourcing general counsel duties.
When you seek out general counsel services from outside your organization, it can benefit your business in many ways. First, the outsourced counsel will have in-depth knowledge of business law and related matters as they apply to your company. They should take the time to become familiar with how your business works to understand possible complications, as well as your company goals.
An outsourced general counsel will be ready to help – but only when you need it. Instead of paying an attorney to work full-time for your business, you can receive only the legal services that you need, which can save extensive resources. You still have the legal advice and oversight that keeps your business on track without paying hefty hourly fees or a full-time salary.
