Legal counsel from Gonzalo Law regularly serves as Outsourced General Counsel to companies and nonprofits. This allows your company to have an established relationship with the firm and access to on-going legal counsel when you need it. Our team works with your company to regularly review internal operations, agreements with vendors, negotiate mergers or acquisitions, and addresses legal questions as soon as they arise. We also provide outside legal opinions independent of your organization. As such, you have the benefit of high-value corporate legal counsel at a fraction of the price.
Our service is designed for companies and nonprofits that are proactive about their corporate legal transactions. It allows them to protect their organization and to anticipate problems before they occur. This can greatly reduce the chance of future litigation and help founders structure an exit from the company. The role of Outsourced General Counsel is to collaborate with your CEO and the entire C-Suite to create the legal strategy and objectives specific to your organization. From there, our team works with yours to help execute those objectives. Some of our services include the following:
