Outsourced General Counsel & Contracts

An experienced and business-savvy General Counsel provides businesses of all sizes with a competitive advantage. Most small and midsized businesses, of course, cannot afford the compensation the market commands for a General Counsel, and owners of small and midsized businesses rightfully have little or no interest in giving up or diluting their equity ownership to entice an experienced General Counsel to join the company. At Lockaby PLLC, we offer a modern and creative solution to this conundrum by providing outsourced General Counsel services.

Outside General Counsel: How It Works

There is a both a micro and macro component to our Outside General Counsel services.

On a micro-level, we take the necessary time to get to know the company, its leadership team, its workforce, its unique culture, and its risk profile.

On a macro-level, we have a deep understanding of a variety of industries, and we get to know the industry in which the company operates and the various macroeconomic forces and trends impacting the industry, the company, its operations, its workforce, and its clients and customers.

This comprehensive knowledge allows us to provide both practical and creative solutions to the myriad legal issues confronting the corporation, from day-to-day contract preparation, drafting, and negotiation issues with customers, vendors, and suppliers, to corporate governance matters and relations with boards of directors and other key stakeholders.
