Counsel a la carte

How many times have you wanted to pick up the phone to call your lawyer… just to bounce something around? What stops you? The usual answer we hear is ‘I don’t want to pay my lawyer for a 3 minute call on a simple issue’…

You know the business you are building could benefit from the ability to talk through arising legal issues: as you land new customers, as you enter new markets, as you look at possible financing options … and the list goes on.

Our in-house counsel solution is an extension of your team. Whether you need a few hours a week, several days a week or situation-based services, one of our professionals can provide you with on-site or virtual advice on a part-time basis. No need to coordinate schedules to set up meetings and WITHOUT unexpected legal bills in your in-box or having to hire a full-time In-house lawyer when your needs do not yet require one. Our professionals are accustomed to working with your existing external counsel, so engaging Whiteboard Law’s In-house Counsel program does not have to be an “either-or” choice, it is often both. Our lawyers often handle both routine legal matters such as corporate governance matters or negotiations on changes to standard form customer contracts, as well as working collaboratively with the client’s existing external counsel on large transactions to achieve the best results for the client.

The ability to draw from a part-time team of virtual counsel provides the capability to offer highly responsive, proactive advice. And it is a team, you have taken the time to establish a trusted relationship and that relationship affords you access to all experience within the firm; a multi-disciplinary team of people available when you need them. We are your pinch-hitter when we get the call!
