In-House vs. Outsourced General Counsel

It is imperative for every business to have legal guidance. You run a business because you are an expert in that particular industry, but this does not mean that you have an in-depth understanding of all the legal issues your company might face, or the laws with which you must comply. For this reason, many companies have an attorney on payroll to serve as in-house general counsel, who advises on legal questions and concerns as they arise.

However, not every company has legal issues that arise regularly enough to warrant paying a full-time salary for in-house counsel. Further, many businesses don’t have the resources to expand their payroll any further. This does not mean that you should go without legal counsel, however, as you can consider seeking help from San Francisco outsourced general counsel.

Both in-house counsel and outsourced counsel can:

  • Work to prevent legal disputes
  • Draft and negotiate contracts
  • Provide compliance advice
  • Work to resolve disputes as efficiently as possible
  • Oversee complex business transactions
  • Address any other legal matters your company faces

However, there are some differences between the two roles, and the main difference is that one is a full-time position at your company, while the other works at a law firm and helps other clients, as well. However, our outsourced general counsel:

  • Only provides assistance when needed
  • Has flexible fee structures for businesses of sizes and types
  • Gets to know your business to best respond to legal concerns

You can reap many benefits from having trusted legal counsel without the need for a full-time in-house position.
