Outside General Counsel Services
 
Businesses today need pragmatic solutions to solve everyday legal concerns. The issues and challenges facing business leaders today often require counseling from an experienced attorney who has a deep understanding of how to balance legal considerations with business demands. A powerful alternative to hiring a full-time in-house counsel is to hire an outside general counsel who represents the company fully understanding its inside perspective.
 
Gary Barr leads the Outside General Counsel Practice Group. Gary brings a depth of senior legal expertise with an ability to grasp just how important it is to understand a company’s culture and way of conducting business. With an offsite general counsel in place, potential problems can be spotted and addressed before they develop into costly legal issues. We promote the use of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) as a cost-effective strategy to bring a prompt end to litigation whenever possible.
