Services

Outside General Counsel

As Outside General Counsel we will perform the vast majority of your organization's legal work directly, or, when necessary, may identify unique issues and obtain specialized legal and non-legal referrals, overseeing and coordinating those referrals on your behalf. Working closely with our clients, we will be familiar with your current operations, past history, and future goals and provide efficient, thoughtful, and innovative solutions to your legal issues.  This service allows you to have "in-house counsel" without the expense of having a full-time attorney on staff.
