Services and Expertise


Outside general counsel services

Many small and medium sized businesses and non-profit organizations do not have in-house legal counsel.  For these clients, we can perform the functions of an in-house general counsel efficiently and effectively.  We also can supplement in-house counsel or traditional law firm counsel on an as-needed basis.  

Such services may include:

  • contract review and negotiation
  • corporate housekeeping
  • compliance program review and assessment
  • governance policies, procedures and audits
  • securities disclosure and regulatory review
  • leases
  • documentation of strategic alliances and joint ventures
  • pre-litigation dispute resolution
  • non-disclosure agreement review
  • acquisition diligence and documentation
