General counsel, also called chief legal counsel, is the role for an attorney in charge of coordinating all legal affairs for a company.
In larger companies, the general counsel typically works on staff, full time. But for organizations that do not require a full-time chief legal counsel, an outside resource can be a very attractive option. At ByrdAdatto, we can serve as outside general counsel, as well as your organization’s entire legal department.
As outside general counsel, we serve as a trusted set of ears for your most delicate issues. We are a sounding board and strategic guide for the CEO and other top executives. Should your needs go beyond our areas of expertise, we can coordinate with trusted outside firms and bring them up to speed on the matters at hand. At ByrdAdatto, we internally handle a full range of business and health care issues.
