It is no longer sufficient today for in-house counsels to be able to read the laws; they are expected to provide swift and practical solutions to their companies. In an ever-changing risk environment and uncertain times, companies are facing the on-going challenges to identify, assess, manage and mitigate their risks, and to monitor and ensure compliance with all relevant legal and regulatory provisions.
We counsel our clients on identifying, anticipating, and managing the risks, exposure and compliance within their company’s business operations. Our business acumen and solid knowledge of diversified industries and negotiation strategies enable us to step into our clients’ shoes to help mitigate their business disruption and provide practical advice tailored to their operating environment.
Our General Counsel Desk is a distinct legal discipline that offers a full range of legal services across a broad spectrum of practice areas and legal operations management, providing a cost-effective legal and business-oriented support without the burden of either building or extending a permanent in-house legal team.
We step in as sole counsel to start-ups, small to mid-size companies, and family businesses that require viable legal support options for their day-to-day issues.
We also partner with general counsels and existing in-house legal departments, as their extended team members, to bridge temporary shortfalls or gaps in skilled resources and/or expertise to deliver special projects.
