Small and midsized businesses often face limited choices when it comes to hiring outside legal counsel. Many hire attorneys on a project-by-project basis – often waiting until a dispute has blown up before involving a lawyer.
There are many downsides to this project-based approach. Outside attorneys rarely know your business (or even the industry) at an in-depth level. By the time they get involved, it may be too late to avert the dispute. The result? More time, effort and expense – not to mention a heap of legal fees.
A better way
At Cowden Law Co. LPA, we provide a better, more cost-effective alternative. Through our outside general counsel approach, we:
- Start with an in-depth understanding of your business, including your unique vision and position in the market, the challenges and risks you’re facing, and your short- and long-term goals
- Provide ongoing guidance and develop proactive strategies to prevent or minimize legal problems at the outset, before they erupt into costly and time-consuming burdens
- Maximize the value to your business with a reasonable fixed-fee retainer that makes us available whenever you need us, just like in-house counsel (but without the prohibitive cost)
As seasoned business attorneys with decades of experience, we know more than just the law; we know business. Our lawyers are entrepreneurs serving entrepreneurs.
