Corporate Counsel

The Virtual Counsel simulates your own full-time counsel; just as virtual reality emulates reality. However, the Virtual Counsel requires no overhead and will provide assistance only when needed. You can outsource as much or as little legal work to one or more Virtual Counsel as frequently or infrequently as you wish. This concept of “just-in-time hiring” gives you the flexibility to keep your legal department lean through both its peaks and valleys. The Virtual Counsel uses email, faxes and couriers to deliver instantaneous and seamless responses when on-site meetings are not required. The variety of work that you can outsource includes:


  • Legal research
  • Prepare for negotiations
  • Draft documents
  • Incorporations
  • Minute-book reviews
  • Assist with due-diligence
  • Assist on closings and other transactions
