Why Out-Source In-House Counsel?
Businesses geared up for growth need legal advice and services to deal with the high-risk profile this stage of business brings. Many choose to hire in-house counsel as a way to gain legal expertise that’s always available and predictable in cost. Having counsel on staff is certainly handy, but there are times when you need more help.
Your company may be working on closing a big deal, completing a merger or acquiring a competitor. Projects like these can take up more legal resources than your in-house counsel can provide. It could be that your growing company isn’t ready to grow its team of in-house counsel. In cases like these, General Legal Counsel can pick up the ball and run with it, offering as-needed in-house legal services.
