They face on-going challenges of reducing the cost of hiring full-time in-house counsels whilst the legal department is expected to advise on increasing volumes of complex issues and deliver against the Business’ strategic projects and objectives.
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 their legal and regulatory compliance.
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. We have previously served in senior in-house roles (or as entrepreneurs running their own businesses) at major international corporations in diverse industries and sectors.
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.
We tackle legal issues within the context of your overall business objectives, and we assist you in balancing legal risk and business goals to design creative and practical solutions.
Our clients retain the flexibility to scale up or down our services, as needed. Our on-demand approach ensures a cost-effective legal and business-oriented support without the burden of building a permanent in-house legal team.
