In-House Expertise

 

Our more than 15 years of experience working as in-house lawyers in both the EU and the U.S. puts us in an ideal position to understand and support our clients' business objectives.

We serve as acting General Counsel to a number of small and medium size companies that require dedicated, in-house legal management and resources, but are not yet large enough to justify hiring a full-time in-house counsel.

We also provide supplemental help to established in-house legal departments of all sizes which need temporary additional resources on a part time basis to support their operations.

General Counsel Legal Services in New York
Your company is a start up or small to medium-size company. It has no in-house counsel, let alone an internal legal department. Yet, it has the need for general legal advice in support of its daily operations in the U.S. market and/or in the EU, often under foreign laws and in the local language.

We offer flexibility while saving your company the need to hire local external counsel in either or both the U.S. and the EU.

International Counsel Law OfficeYour company only has U.S. in-house counsel and needs assistance with supporting its operations in European markets.

We bring international expertise on the transactional side by adding deal-specific or ongoing support to your company by drafting and negotiating its agreements under EU laws, allowing it to add to its internal ressources on a temporary or part-time basis and to support its international operations when its budget or needs do not justify bringing in a full time permanent foreign lawyer on board.

US Law counselling
Your company is EU-based with operations in the U.S. It has no or a very limited number of in-house counsel and, if present, these lawyers are EU-based and only qualified to offer legal support under EU laws.

Your company needs temporary, part-time legal support from U.S. lawyers who are also EU-qualified and can therefore understand the company's contracts under EU law before localizing, drafting and negotiating them in the U.S.

We offer the following benefits to our clients:

  • Cost Effectiveness: Through outsourcing, companies can significantly reduce their fixed costs, such as employee staff costs.
  • Scalability: Companies can flexibly scale their operations on an as needed basis.
  • Expertise: Specialist legal expertise and many years of professional experience at an affordable cost.
