Benefits of Outsourced General Counsel
Hiring a full-time lawyer for your company means a major expense, between their salary and benefits. Many smaller companies have a need for legal work but not enough demand that justifies hiring someone on staff. Your company can still get legal help without the full expenses of hiring when you outsource your general counsel work.
An outsourced general counsel will still be a partner to your business. They will get to know your company and needs. Your attorney would anticipate legal issues and provide you with the same services that an on-staff general counsel would. Having an attorney that knows your company will aid in your efforts at risk management. At the same time, you can focus on your core business while a qualified professional handles your legal needs. If your legal needs grow in the future, you can always hire the outsourced general counsel for more work or eventually hire a full-time staff member of your own.
An outsourced general counsel may work for you on a fixed budget, eliminating surprise legal bills. They will give you some cost certainty, allowing you to invest in other areas of your business.
If you have to hire a new outside counsel every time that a need arises, you will end up wasting money because the lawyer would need to take time to get up to speed. They may not be able to provide the same level of service. Having the same person deal with each other allows you to take a more predictable and unified legal approach.
