Procurement and Management of Outside Counsel

 

I’m ready to hire DailyGC™ now.

Although our goal at DailyGC™ is to make your business issues go away through a single day of General Counsel Services, we know that sometimes this is impossible. The nature of certain types of legal issues may require that they take weeks, months or even years to resolve or conclude. For a small business, this can be a daunting drain on your resources and a painful but unavoidable cost. However, we can help you to navigate through the legal process and ease that pain, by making sure that your matter is handled competently and cost effectively.

As former General Counsel of large companies, we are accustomed to taking a proactive approach to hiring outside legal counsel, identifying experienced lawyers with the requisite skill sets and negotiating fee agreements that work for you. In appropriate situations, we may be able to negotiate flat fees instead of hourly fees, or payments over time instead of a lump sum, taking less bite out of your businesses’ cash flow. We also are accustomed to overseeing the work of other lawyers, both to provide a second opinion on the direction in which your matter is proceeding and to ensure that your matter is being handled without unnecessary costs.
