Any company that wants to stay competitive and keep growing will inevitably
encounter legal complications that will get in the way of that goal. From
trouble with individual contracts to regulatory compliance, any little
problem only gets bigger when it is mismanaged or rushed. The issue is
made even worse in considering that executives and business owners rarely
have the time and legal know-how to overcome legal obstacles. Many choose
to rely on outsourced general counsel, which bring a number of significant
advantages over keeping in-house attorneys on salary.
Top reasons why so many companies depend on outsourced general counsel:
- Steady amounts of important legal and/or regulatory compliance work can
be handled by a trusted attorney as they arise, not after they become
problems. Even companies with new legal concerns each day can depend on
outsourced general counsel to appropriately manage each one.
- An outsourced general counsel can operate in highly-regulated industries,
such as finance, without needing to worry about internal complications.
An active corporate strategy that uses
acquisitions, joint ventures, and so on will run into more legal concerns than a company
advancing at a slower pace. Outsourced general counsel allows your company
to continue moving rapidly and actively without worrying about legal speed bumps.
Raising capital through one or more securities offerings or other corporate financings
is made much simpler and less stressful with outsourced general counsel.
- Outsourced general counsel can help anticipate, avoid, prevent, or solve
“corporate tragedies,” such as an unexpected and significant
drop in the health of an overall industry.
- Legal knowledge is irreplaceable in any industry, even if executives, owners,
and managers are not the direct source of that knowledge.
In addition to companies wanting outsourced general counsel, institutional
investors want to see such legal services being used as well. When someone
puts their money into a company as a serious investment, they will expect
the company to respond by responsibly managing the company. Few things
say you care about the future of your own company more than hiring outsourced
general counsel or similar alternatives.
