Outside General Counsel

Having access to on-going legal advice from your outside general counsel who understands your business is invaluable. If you are running a startup or small company, you know that legal questions arise frequently and require answers quickly. However, operating an in-house legal department is rarely an effective solution unless you are a medium or large company. As your outside general counsel, Pandev Law can handle your legal issues while you focus on scaling your business. If your company already has an existing legal department, our attorneys are available to supplement your existing legal team with our extensive experience in our specialized practice areas.

Cost Benefit of General Counsel Services

Cost Benefit of General Counsel Services

Due to the on-going, long-term nature of our outside general counsel relationships, we are able to provide our general counsel services at a fraction of our regular hourly rates and significantly below the cost of hiring a full-time in-house attorney. The cost and scope of our outside general counsel services are tailored to your needs and budget. We generally charge a fixed fee which is paid monthly, but have also had clients purchase blocks of time in advance that were used on an as-needed basis. The cost-effective access to on-going, trusted outside legal counsel offered by our general counsel services helps clients make important business decisions with confidence which positively impacts their businesses.
