General Counsel


Our corporate attorneys work closely with companies at every stage of the business life cycle, from start-ups, emerging companies, mature middle market companies, to founders planning their business succession. Our approach is to be practical and business-minded to meet our clients day-to-day legal needs and assist them with their overarching growth strategies. This often means we develop protocols tailored to each general counsel client to ensure we have a knowledgeable team and reliable, repeatable practices to ensure responsiveness, efficiency, and effectiveness.

By building close, long-term relationships with our clients we can provide timely, actionable advice at the speed of business. This enables us to mitigate risks as they develop, rather than merely reacting to legal problems after they have manifested. For our long-term “general counsel” clients, we provide one relationship partner who serves as the point of contact with the client for all legal matters, and quarterback on multidisciplinary projects involving third party advisors.  This ensures your get the expertise you need blended with our knowledge of your business and understanding of your particular needs, goals, and interests.
