What is an Outside General Counsel?

 

An outside general counsel is a lawyer or firm offering ongoing legal services to a company, though not directly on the company’s payroll. Engaging an outside general counsel affords businesses the expertise of seasoned legal experts capable of handling wide-ranging legal dilemmas–from routine business activities to complex transactions. An outside general counsel means comprehensive legal guidance without the significant overhead of maintaining an in-house legal department.

 

Why Businesses Hire Outside Legal Counsel

 

There are many reasons your company should consider engaging outside general counsel, including:

 

Economical Expertise: Outside general counsel often proves more budget-friendly than an in-house legal team. These cost savings are significant for small to medium-sized companies. This arrangement allows companies to harness exceptional legal expertise without shelling out full-time wages, benefits, and other costs associated with full-time legal departments.

 

Focus on what Matters Most: Outsourcing legal responsibilities to a trustworthy outside general counsel allows leaders to focus on expanding their ventures. Leaving the legal matters to the pros means better allocation of time and resources. 

 

Comprehensive Legal Assistance: Outside general counsel offers extensive services. Some examples include contract negotiation, corporate governance, due diligence, mergers and acquisitions, property dealings, and litigation support. Having a point person for all legal inquiries simplifies communications and ensures a uniform approach to legal issues.

 

Risk Management: Outside general counsel mitigate potential legal risks before they become lengthy legal battles. They navigate legal challenges through proactive planning and ensure compliance with applicable laws and regulations.

 

How Can My Small Business Utilize Outside General Counsel Services?

 

 

For organizations without a legal department, outside general counsel services can be utilized in the following ways:

 

On-demand Legal Support: An outside general counsel may be used for distinct legal issues whenever they arise. This ala cart method allows businesses to tackle particular legal hurdles as needed while avoiding a long-standing contractual commitment.

 

Ongoing Legal Partnership: Businesses may opt for a continuous partnership with an outside general counsel. This model guarantees steady legal assistance, which assists companies encountering regular legal concerns by offering steadfast legal advice without establishing an in-house legal team.

Advantages of Sustained Outside General Counsel

 

An outside general understands your company’s operational framework and culture through sustained collaboration. This opens the door for expert legal advice tailored to your company’s needs. As such, outside general counsel effectively becomes a dependable extension of your company. 

 

Moreover, the familiarity and trust built over time enhance legal response times. Deep-rooted understanding allows for quicker decision-making and problem-solving, greatly assisting the company when time is of the essence.

 

The financial predictability of fixed-fee or retainer-based arrangements with an outside general counsel cannot be overstated. Retaining outside general counsel will simplify company budgeting and financial planning, which is invaluable in dynamic business environments where unexpected expenses can sidetrack operations.

 

Can Outside General Counsel Services Assist My Company’s Existing Legal Department?

 

Even companies with in-house legal teams can benefit from outside general counsel services:

 

Specialized Expertise: Outside legal counsel may offer knowledge and experience in specialized areas that complement the capabilities of in-house legal teams. Specialized knowledge is handy for complex or niche legal issues like intellectual property, venture capitalism, or cross-border transactions.

 

Handling Complex Projects: In-house counsel can leverage outside general counsel for additional support in difficult legal situations. This includes support with complex litigation, inter-jurisdictional transactions, or monumental corporate restructuring.

 

Fresh Perspective: Outside general counsel offers an objective viewpoint on legal issues without the potential bias that may skew in-house counsel. This fresh perspective can lead to innovative problem-solving and the identification of potential legal oversights.

 

Balancing Workload: Outside general counsel can help manage workloads during busy periods when the in-house department is overworked and understaffed. This support helps important projects remain on track.

 

What Should I Look For in Outside Legal Counsel Services?

 

When choosing an outside general counsel, look for professionals with these critical attributes:

 

Proven Experience: Select attorneys or law firms that have successfully served as outside general counsel. 

 

Business Savvy: The ideal outside general counsel understands the intricacies of business operations and the company’s strategic objectives. 

 

Client-Focused: An outside general counsel should prioritize the client’s interests. Find a firm that will take a proactive approach to identifying potential legal issues and opportunities.

 

Industry-Specific Knowledge: Each sector presents its own legal and regulatory hurdles. A commendable outside general counsel will immerse themselves in the client’s industry to offer relevant and impactful advice.

 

Effective communication is the cornerstone of any successful partnership with an outside general counsel. Seek legal professionals who regularly update you on legal matters and remain accessible for questions.
