Outside General Counsel

In the course of conducting business, companies face a wide range of legal concerns. As a result, it is beneficial for companies to secure on-going legal representation to ensure that the business meets its legal responsibilities. Our law firm provides cost-effective outside general counsel services to businesses throughout California, including, but not limited to, Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, Orange County, Riverside, San Bernardino, Santa Monica and Beverly Hills. We can also provide on-going legal services for domestic and international businesses in a variety of practice areas, such as alternative dispute resolution, bankruptcy, business, internet, and real estate.

By maintaining an outside general counsel, a business benefits from on-going legal representation without the cost associated with in-house counsel. Additionally, outside general counsel has the opportunity to become familiar with the specifics and intricacies of your business, which helps ensure personalized legal representation. As such, an outside general counsel is prepared to provide legal services catered to your specific interests. This familiarity also makes for more efficient legal representation since your outside general counsel will already be accustomed to your operations. Furthermore, the business saves additional time and resources by not having to find legal representation at every sign of potential legal issues. The outside general counsel will also be able to prevent legal disputes before they arise as we monitor, assess, and review on-going operations.
