Companies without In-House Counsel

Working with the experienced Bay Area business attorneys at General Legal Counsel can help you to protect your investment and minimize the disruption legal questions or issues have on your growing business.

Companies without In-House Counsel

Every business needs legal counsel to help with the day-to-day decisions that shape the company’s future. However, many businesses find it challenging to allocate the time and the resources necessary to hire an attorney who can offer more than occasional assistance with document filing or contract review.

When you are building a business, you dedicate time, energy and resources to nurturing and developing that business, without the proper legal guidance, all of that effort can be quickly lost. Working with the experienced Bay Area business attorneys at General Legal Counsel can help you to protect your investment and minimize the disruption legal questions or issues have on your growing business.

Paying for an Attorney

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could pick up the phone and call your attorney without wondering how much it was going to cost or if you were going to be billed for the social chit-chat that conversations often start with? At General Legal Counsel we don’t want our clients to decide against calling us when they have a legal question because they are unsure about how much that call will cost. As your virtual, in-house legal team, we want to be the first place you go when you need legal advice.

To achieve that, we offer flexible billing and monthly flat fee services.

Our billing structure enables you to spread your legal costs out over time, making managing your legal budget more predictable.  And, you’ll never get a bill for the time we spend on phone calls, emails or providing general advice. For a monthly flat fee, you gain access to Pleasanton business lawyers who are dedicated to helping you manage the legal, compliance and strategic choices your business faces with an eye towards controlling risk and taking advantage of opportunities.  Call us to learn more about how GLC can help you make the best legal decisions for your business.
