Discover the Difference
Your New Corporate Legal Department
What is an Outside General Counsel?
Many companies have a legal department. Their top lawyer is often called either a General Counsel or a Chief Legal Officer.
This lawyer is a generalist (hey, lawyers aren’t always known as the creative types when it comes to titles!) that does a little of everything, from contracts to legal org charts to employment law. They manage outside counsel and litigation matters. They are an adviser to the other departments, including sales & operations, marketing, finance, and technology.
But many companies are not big enough to need a full legal team. Or do not have the resources for such a department.
That’s where the Outside General Counsel comes in! Think of DeCarrera Law as your legal department!
The new modern legal department is scalable, with on-demand help only as needed. DeCarrera Law scales with your needs, as your company scales.
