Efficient and Effective
Small businesses often have the need – but not the budget – for internal legal expertise and commercial litigation support. For that reason, we provide general counsel services to ensure that our clients are both compliant in their operations, and able make intelligent decisions regarding litigious customers without being forced to settle due to the potential cost of litigation.
General Counsel Services
General Counsel Services are typically arranged on a monthly retainer basis or can be structured as hourly if a client’s needs are intermittent. General Counsel Services include:
- Maintaining company books and records
- Drafting corporate resolutions
- Attending board meetings and keeping minutes
- Negotiating shareholder agreements
- Employee relations
- Regulatory review and assistance
- Financing assistance
- Broker and banker agreements
- Due diligence management
- Letters of intent and deal documents
- Alternative dispute resolution
We work with our clients to defend against the commercial claims which they face in the ordinary course of business. Small businesses are often faced with claims and are stuck trying to determine if it costs less to simple settle, or if they should defend against an erroneous claim – this is not justice nor a fair decision for a small business owner to have to make. A sample of the types of claims we handle for our small business clientele are:
- Contract Disputes
- Lease and Real Property Disputes
- Loan and Note Disputes
- Customer Disputes
- Employment Disputes
Unlike larger firms, we DO NOT charge our clients for basic and necessary administrative costs such as postage, document reproduction, etc.
We want our clients to utilize their limited resources how they see fit – not on unnecessary litigation defense. Prior to taking on any case we will always review the facts, circumstances, documents, and other available information with each prospective client, at no cost, to provide an opinion of approximate costs related to defending the matter and the probability of potential outcomes.
