Many small and medium-sized businesses find themselves “out in the cold” when it comes to working with a business lawyer. Most of the time, it doesn’t make much sense for a small business to have an attorney on staff full-time. An attorney can be expensive, and most smaller businesses don’t have enough legal work to keep a lawyer busy full-time. The unfortunate result of this, however, is that many smaller businesses don’t get legal help when they actually do need it—making important decisions that could have costly consequences. At times like this, an outside general counsel can be an excellent alternative to expensive in-house resources.

When You Might Benefit From Outside General Counsel

Many companies, from smaller start-ups to large private companies, may find themselves in one or more of several situations:

  • They cannot afford or elect not to have the services of an in-house attorney
  • An in-house lawyer may not have the expertise in certain practice area, or the time to dedicate to certain issues, and may benefit from a flexible outside attorney
  • A business owner or corporate executive may need an independent legal review of specific issues by an attorney with no stake in the outcome who can be relied on to provide answers.
