General Counsel Services
General Counsel Services
General Counsel Services are ideal for businesses that may not have the requisite budget for an in-house attorney, but require regular access to sophisticated legal counsel from a trusted legal advisor that understands their business.
Let us be your General Counsel at a fraction of the cost.
MontanaroLaw’s General Counsel Services provides senior-level general counsel attorneys to work as a member of our client’s management team. General Counsel Services are ideal for businesses that may not have the requisite budget for an in-house general counsel, but require regular access to sophisticated legal counsel from an attorney that understands their business and the challenges they face. An experienced general counsel will maintain regular, in-house contact and work closely with management. In order to provide the greatest value, a general counsel must be intimately aware of every aspect of the business, from sales and marketing to IT, finance, HR and more.
These are just some of the benefits of having retained counsel:
• Frees up senior management’s time to focus on the company’s core operations
• Adds another versatile and seasoned member to the management team
• Contributes a proactive legal perspective to strategy and execution
• Increased ability to assess and capitalize on strengths and opportunities as the company grows and changes
• Reduced cost of legal services
• Added value of identifying and preventing legal issues up front rather than resolving them after the fact
• Ability to be on-hand to participate in meetings of the executive management team and the Board of Directors, providing advice on issues as they arise
• Development of working relationships with all members of the management team, not just one primary contact
• Better able to understand the culture of the company
• Better able to understand the unique challenges facing an organization
• More opportunity and greater insight in helping to develop key business strategies while managing legal risk
• Provides CEO and CFO with a much broader range of feedback and guidance
