Outside General Counsel

Businesses often depend upon outside counsel to play the role of their general and in-house counsel. The team at Travis Law serves as outside general counsel for companies throughout the state. Our firm works closely with our clients to gain an in-depth understanding of the company’s activities and objectives. This is the reason that we are capable of providing client-centered, focused, and cost-efficient counsel on legal issues they may be faced with daily.

Outside general counsel is the legal team you retain to advise you on the crucial issues that affect your company. They are not employees of your organization. Instead, they operate as independent service providers under contract.

An excellent way to look at it is outsourcing your legal needs. This keeps you from having a full-time lawyer on staff, but also able to benefit from having a lawyer that’s always on-call.

Meeting Your Individual Needs
Rather than approaching the legal needs of your company in an ala carte fashion or seeking counsel from random litigators that you may or may not have a grasp on the particular legal issue you are confronted with, you will be working alongside seasoned business lawyers that understand the individual needs of your business and its specific needs. One you can fully trust in to profoundly understand your legal issues.

Our Role
As outside general counsel, our role is to be ready, since we are typically first to receive the call when our clients have situations that have legal implications associated with them.

In our capacity as strategic advisors to our clients, we operate promptly and effectively with creative and far-reaching insight from our team to find the solution that is ideally suited for your business.

Why Choose Outside General Counsel
More companies are hiring outside general counsel because it is the most cost-efficient method to have unlimited access to seasoned business lawyers to advise them and help them sidestep potential legal pitfalls while helping to improve profits.
Small and mid-sized companies commonly hire outside counsel to manage the daily and ongoing legal issues of the business. Larger companies with in-house legal departments seek outside counsel for specialized cases or litigation.
