We serve as outside general counsel to many of our clients, affording the benefits of an “on-call” attorney with a beneficial and cost-effective fee structure – avoiding the expense and overhead of an in-house counsel.
Businesses need guidance of experienced counsel, and the legal work to accomplish multi-disciplinary transactional work and complex litigation. Yet, many businesses either overlook this need or spend significant sums on in-house attorneys. A sampling of our general counsel services includes:
- Corporate formations and re-structuring
- Contract preparation and review with customers, vendors, employees and partners
- Day-to-day legal advice and counseling on general and industry-specific practices, employment matters, non-compete agreements, non-disclosure agreements and general compliance
- Governmental investigations, fines and penalties
Peddicord Wharton works closely and openly with our clients to develop suitable fee structures with our general counsel partners. This makes the relationship both advantageous and cost-effective. Often, this structure removes the “billable hour” from the equation, and permits the client to pursue their legal protections and objectives without the worry or hassle of unexpected legal invoices.
