Outside General Counsel

Outside General Counsel

At Grantham Law, we have developed a legal product for small businesses that allows business owners to have access to an experienced Massachusetts business attorney who can answer all their legal questions any time. Our "Legal Concierge" service allows your business to have its own "general counsel" and have the advantage of having an experienced business lawyer just a phone call away. No matter what the legal issue your business is facing, or legal question you may have, our Massachusetts business attorneys can help. By being proactive with your businesses legal needs, you can let us advise you on legal aspects of your business, and work to keep you out of the court room, while you concentrate on running your business.

A Smarter Approach

The role of your general counsel is not to replace or compete with traditional litigation law firms or M&A law firms. We also do not provide highly specialized work like patents or SEC filings. Rather, as your General Counsel, we handle your business' day-to-day legal matters such as drafting and reviewing contracts, assisting with human resource issues, and working with you to limit your liability in an efficient and cost-effective manner.

How Does It Work?

You sign a two-year agreement with our firm and pay a retainer. The retainer is yours until we earn it…think of it like “prepaid” legal service.  Any time you have a legal question, need a legal document drafted or reviewed, have problems with collections, employees, or anything else, simply email or call your general counsel, and he will take care of it for you. You will receive a monthly invoice that shows how much work was done, and how much of your retainer has been used. When the retainer is depleted, you have the option of reverting to month-to-month billing, at a higher hourly rate, or paying another retainer and keeping a lower hourly rate.

Unlike other law firms that offer this service, we do not charge you a monthly service fee.  Your time/retainer is yours until you use it and it does not expire.
