Fractional General Counsel


Modern Approach to Dealing with Legal Matters

Every business needs a team of professionals to effectively operate and make a profit. However, many small companies, and especially start-ups, quickly realize that bringing those experienced professionals on as employees might not be feasible or affordable. The salary and benefits for an experienced, full-time, in-house attorney are substantial. A modern approach to dealing with this challenge is contracting with “fractional” professionals who work for the company based on an outsourced and part-time arrangement – what we call Fractional General Counsel.

You have probably consulted with a business lawyer when you formed your business, and you may have consulted with an attorney when you had questions or issues related to specific business matters. By now you realize, however, that you need legal counsel who has been educated about your specific operations and is consistently available to you on short notice to deal with issues as they arise.

Working closely with our clients, we gain an in-depth understanding of their business activities, objectives, past history, and future goals. This enables us to provide focused, client-centered, and cost-effective advice and counsel on legal issues confronting our clients on a daily basis. In our role as Fractional General Counsel, we are the proverbial “first responder” when our clients encounter business issues with legal implications.

If for any reason we cannot handle a particular case for you, then we locate and retain the proper legal counsel to meet your company’s needs and oversee that attorney’s work – including reviewing their bills for you. Many business owners either find themselves calling attorneys frequently and paying expensive hourly rates, or avoid calling an attorney altogether for fear of what the cost will be – This can turn cavities into root canals.

How Does It Work?

  • One call to set it up
  • Receive a proposal immediately
  • 12-month arrangement with 30 days cancellation clause
  • Call or email any time
  • Discounted fees for litigation and other complex matters

What Makes It Great?

  • Innovative efficient way to get legal support, help, and advice
  • Flat monthly fee tailored for your specific needs (budget discipline and no surprises)
  • Many services included (contract review, writing letters, advice, etc.)
  • Dedicated general counsel without the cost of one
  • We are always available to answer your legal questions
  • A steady hand when you need one
  • Expert advice at ‘your fingertips’

By using Fractional General Counsel, these tough choices and the fear of large legal bills are eliminated. We offer flexible fee structures and flat monthly fees. By all means, our services cost far less than the traditional hourly fees charged by comparable or larger firms.
