Our Expertise: Trusted General Counsel for Privately Held Companies

Manning Fulton‘s business attorneys serve as general counsel to many privately held companies that do not have in house counsel and need general legal advice from time to time. They advise CEOs, CFOs, owners, and other decision-makers on a wide range of legal issues, and also help channel more complex legal issues to other attorneys within the firm with specialized skills needed for addressing specific problems.  By developing an understanding of the needs and risk profile of each client, we can provide counsel on a wide range of alternative solutions, and help each client navigate through challenges to help them achieve their strategic objectives.

Our attorneys appreciate the need for clients to have immediate access to their legal advisors and for prompt responses when dealing with challenging questions.

Our general counsel services include advising clients on a wide range of complex issues, including but not limited to;

  • Commercial contracts
  • Employment issues
  • Shareholder issues
  • Board of director issues
  • Executive compensation
  • Intellectual property
  • Banking and finance
  • International transactions
  • Privacy law
  • Business acquisitions and sales
  • Real estate and leasing issues
  • Joint Ventures

Why Outsource General Counsel Services?

Outsourced general counsel will act as your business’s trusted legal advisor, understanding your mission and priorities. They’ll bring practical industry knowledge to the table, offering solutions that are customized to your specific situation and empowering your business with client-centered expertise.

Here’s how the service can benefit you:

  • Cost-Effective: Pay only for the legal services you use, eliminating the burden of in-house counsel full-time salary, benefits, and overhead.
  • Scalable Support: Adapt your legal resources to your needs. Hire fractional general counsel for specific projects, or secure ongoing guidance.
  • Extensive Knowledge: Leverage the knowledge of experienced lawyers with a broad range of legal understanding. This is particularly valuable for small and medium businesses that might not have the resources for a full-time in-house counsel.
  • Mitigate Risk: Proactively manage legal risks with guidance on compliance, risk identification, and dispute resolution.
