Outside General Counsel Overview

Outside General Counsel offers an innovative service model, customized to provide small and  mid-sized businesses top-shelf legal support. Our attorneys are all seasoned business counsel, and outside general counsel support is all we do. Best of all, you will be charged a reasonable, fixed monthly fee, and you will never be asked to sign a long-term contract. Our core belief is that we must justify our existence every month by adding value to your business. We never charge our clients for hours worked—we charge you for value added.

We are not a conventional law firm. Instead, we provide our clients with a de facto in-house legal function, managing all of your company’s legal needs with a single point of contact. Our holistic approach begins with an in-depth intake process, where we develop a deep understanding of your business and your legal risks and needs.

You will be assigned an outside GC with relevant industry experience and seasoned business judgment. Your outside GC will be available to your senior leadership 24/7, a single point of contact who knows your business and becomes part of your senior management team. We are available to participate in internal and external meetings, can lead negotiations and strategic transactions as an ex officio member of your team.

In short, Outside General Counsel emulates an in-house legal function that is scaled to the unique needs of your business. And we do this on a fixed-fee basis that is far less expensive and more efficient than a traditional law firm, and is free of the obligations associated with hiring a full-time in- house counsel.

Every great business needs a great business lawyer. Contact Outside GC to find out how we can help you grow your business.
