Outsourced General Counsel

Outsourced General Counsel

Our Fortune 100 clients recognize the value of general counsel. With an intimate knowledge of the business, general counsel offers meaningful advice on day-to-day operations, effectively manages outside legal resources and provides strategic thinking on major business decisions.Many of our middle market and start-up clients find the same value in our services as outsourced general counsel.

Growing companies often go without the expertise provided by general counsel.  Lower transaction volume and budget constraints limit the onboarding of a dedicated legal professional.    Traditional law firms offer unsatisfactory alternatives:  high-priced partners with the requisite real-world experience or junior associates without the discernment decades of practicing law brings.  In either case, your work is often rotated among attorneys based on work distribution in the firm — not your needs.  Deep knowledge of your business is often lacking.

Culhane offers a better alternative.  Without the billing requirements and bloated overhead of traditional firms, we can provide a dedicated partner to serve as your general counsel.   In fact, many of our partners have served as general counsel at multinational corporations. Many currently serve as outsourced general counsel for their clients. We understand that an intimate understanding of your business is the cornerstone of providing superior legal service. Flexible pricing enables us to do so at a cost that fits your budget.

Our unique business model also enables us to assist our largest clients with general counsel functions.  Special projects, unplanned absences and natural fluctuations in commerce can temporarily deplete in-house legal resources. Our partners deliver same-level general counsel services without the cost and lag-time associated with temporary employee searches.

If you’re looking for the value of general counsel without the capital investment, you’ll find your solution at Culhane.
