Companies continually seek to streamline their operations and cut costs wherever and whenever possible. With this emphasis on efficiency, many businesses are now seeking to insource most of their legal needs and decrease their reliance on traditional law firms and their high hourly rates. That being said, the level of experience and responsibility of a general counsel requires executive-level compensation and benefits as well as a budget for support staff, technology, and other resources. Accordingly, insourcing legal needs is not always practical for businesses that have neither the capital nor the work load to justify the cost and commitment of an in-house legal department.
Enter Outsourced General Counsel, an affordable middle ground for businesses looking for experienced in-house legal counsel without the sizable overhead associated with hiring a full-time general counsel. Outsourced General Counsel not only has a business-centric, practical, and technology-driven approach to legal services and problem solving, but also practices across many industries and businesses and sees a wide range of situations and solutions, which enables us to draw on that knowledge and constant experience to offer a wider range of options and ideas.
In addition to serving as part-time general counsel for clients, Outsourced General Counsel is also a staffing solution for in-house legal departments.

With our substantial and diverse in-house counsel experience, Outsourced General Counsel can provide an immediate impact and work seamlessly with an in-house legal department and its business partners to address the company’s most pressing and critical legal issues.
