Why Should I Hire an Outside Legal Counsel?


Why Should I Hire an Outside Legal Counsel?

A legal counsel is a crucial part of any business to reduce the risk of exposure to legal liability. Some smaller businesses, however, are unable to afford a full in-house legal team. For businesses in this situation, outside general legal counsel services are a viable option to protect business practices, and anticipate and avoid legal issues.

The Benefits of an Outside General Legal Counsel

An outside legal counsel can serve a business by spotting legal issues before they are an immediate concern. This can translate into:

  • Drafting or overviewing commercial contracts or leases

  • Overseeing any business transactions

  • Guidance on employment and corporate immigration

  • Any instances of litigation

  • Overall facilitation of business development, practices, and governance.

All of these decisions can have significant financial and legal consequences when done without care and consideration from a legal professional. Additionally, outside legal counsels can be an important addition to a business’ in-house legal team. This extension would allow the main team to focus on high-priority legal matters while the outside counsels handle overflow routine legal work or help manage high traffic.

In-House Attorneys vs Outside General Legal Counsel for Businesses

Every business should consult with a legal professional before major decisions or transactions. While in-house legal teams are solely focused on the business at hand, they require expensive compensation that is not sustainable for many businesses. However, hiring an outside legal counsel for your business grants you access to an entire legal department at a fraction of the cost of a traditional counsel.
