Outside General Counsel- Most small and mid-sized business owners know that legal issues aren’t just issues faced by large companies. When the need for representation arises, our talented team of attorneys is here for you, routinely acting as in-house and general counsel for businesses across the country. We understand our clients’ business operations, and consequently are prepared to step in when legal issues arise.  As attorneys and strategic advisers, we are well equipped to provide efficient, cost-effective and innovative solutions for their business-related legal needs. In addition to benefits like legal advice and contract review, general counsel also handles incoming legal matters by delegating to an attorney who focuses on the applicable area of law. As general counsel, we act as the middleman, managing these legal issues on a day to day basis, freeing up the owner’s time and energy to run the business. As outside general counsel, our clients have access to the full spectrum of legal expertise, rather than the limited scope of a single in-house counsel.

Types of Matters we Handle:

  • Drafting and review of employment contracts, board member agreements, non-disclosure agreements, employee handbooks and policies
  • Advising on best practices and troubleshooting for board of directors and governance issues
  • Drafting memos for internal use on a variety of legal concerns
  • Advising nonprofits
  • Training for Advocacy employees and oversight of federal and state lobbying law filings and compliance
  • Providing guidance on hosting events, giving awards, and other interactions with legislators and government officials at the state and federal level
  • Assisting with intellectual property issues, such as trademark registration and renewals
