Often businesses will forgo hiring an attorney due to financial constraints. This can result in unintended consequences. Entering into agreements (even if they seem like “boilerplate”) without understanding every provision, can lead to signing up to things you didn’t expect in the best case scenario, and in litigation, in the worst.
The Solution for Everyday Businesses
An outsourced general counsel gives you access to legal expertise – the kind of immediate access to lawyers that can help you confidently make the right decisions for your business – at a set price.
With an outsourced general counsel, you can have an expert on call to attend board or shareholder meetings, advise you on contracts, assist you in filing required reports, and answer any questions you may have.
Saving Money Long-Term
New business owners have to watch every cent, but legal errors can be far more expensive than the cost of consulting with a lawyer first. Monthly billing for a single flat fee means that you can budget carefully and never need to be concerned that a call to your lawyer will push you into the red for the month.
By spending money in the beginning, you can prevent having to spend more money later. Outsourced general counsel may be exactly what you need to keep your business thriving.
Every day, business owners find themselves embroiled in legal battles that they never expected.
Imagine, the next time you are confused by a contract, or just need some legal advice, you simply pick up the phone and call a lawyer that works closely with your business. Whether you chat for five minutes or one hour of careful assistance, you pay the same amount. This is the reality of having an outsourced general counsel.
