General Counsel Solutions (GCS) provides managed legal services to its small and midsized clients with experienced general counsel, and larger clients with outsourced corporate attorneys, on an as-needed basis. Each GCS general or corporate counsel has solid, in-house general or corporate counsel experience and expertise in your business sector. By using GCS to manage the process, you can save an average of 50% annually on the fees you usually pay to traditional law firms or to hire additional, full-time, in-house corporate legal counsel. The high overhead costs associated with both of those options are eliminated from the equation with GCS. Plus, we negotiate the very best rates.
Even though the costs are lower, the quality of your GCS Counsel is anything but. We start by reviewing your past, present and future legal needs. We then involve you in the selection process to assign our most appropriate attorney to your company who will be available over the long term. The result is that you get a superior counsel and only pay for their time spent performing substantive legal work as your own general counsel or corporate counsel. GCS manages the entire process.
Our high level in-house lawyers are the same ones you would choose for your own legal department if you had a full-time need. Each has a minimum of 10 years as an in-house general or corporate counsel. Each comes with a business mind-set of getting the most favorable result, in the quickest, most efficient way possible. Since, in almost every instance, our assigned GCS Counsel stays with you for years and has experience handling the type of legal needs common to your business sector, he or she acclimates quickly to your infrastructure and works seamlessly with your people. Your GCS Counsel can take on the overload of your regular in-house attorney, act as your general counsel if you don’t have one, or reduce the amount of time spent on a project with your traditional law firm.
