Outside General Counsel

Outside General Counsel

Owning a successful business is a point of pride. When your business thrives, however, legal issues quickly become too complex to handle on your own. MendenFreiman’s outside general counsel services are designed for businesses who may not require their own legal department yet, but need dedicated legal assistance for business matters.

As general counsel, we work closely with clients to learn their business. We identify and prioritize the areas of each business that require attention or could generate higher levels of risk, then guide you through the complexities of legal matters including regulatory compliance, transactions and corporate governance.

  • Business succession planning
  • Business transactions
  • Bylaws, partnership agreements and operating agreements
  • Contracts and agreements
  • Corporate financing, including equity structuring, equity incentive plans, asset-based and other secured lending
