Outside General Counsel Services
Providing a Full Range of Legal Services and Proactive Solutions
Compliance issues, contract breaches, and complex financial transactions are all part of the ordinary course of doing business. But not every company is large enough or has the resources to have an in-house legal team to handle these matters. The most efficient way for start-ups, mid-sized companies, and growing businesses to tackle any legal issues they might encounter is by retaining the services of outside general counsel.

Building the Foundation of Your Company’s Success
Successful business owners know how to use their resources wisely. Not only does running a business involve overseeing the company’s day-to-day operations, but it also entails making critical financial decisions, ensuring regulatory compliance, managing risk, and dealing with a variety of legal issues. While most business owners do not have the time or expertise to handle these matters, retaining outside general counsel can be a viable and practical solution.
At every stage of a company’s growth, it’s important to have the legal guidance and advice necessary to make essential business decisions and avoid any pitfalls that could hinder its success. From corporate governance matters to drafting contracts, implementing strategies to protect investments, and handling tax issues, there are many aspects of business ownership that require specific knowledge and extensive insight.
An outside general counsel arrangement can offer a business flexibility, consistency, and stability while ensuring its legal obligations are satisfied. Although many issues can be planned for in advance, certain disputes can occur that may require immediate attention. By hiring Waugh Grant as your outside general counsel, you can rest assured that you will have the legal counsel you need — at the time you need it most — to safeguard your interests.
