Outside General Counsel Services

Many small and medium sized companies have the need for an experienced business attorney to act as general counsel to provide quick, responsive and practical business, legal and risk assessment advice on day to day issues.   In many cases, a phone call or review on the front end of a matter can save tremendous time, money and resources by avoiding problems later.  We want to help your business grow and provide economical advice and guidance on the issues businesses encounter daily.

We work with company founders, CEOs and senior management, project managers, human resources and other decision makers, providing guidance and advice on a host of issues, from quick to complex, including contract drafting, review and negotiation, employee hiring and termination, employee equity participation, real estate and equipment purchases and leasing, sales, distribution and supply agreements and relationships.

We also understand the importance of corporate maintenance and governance.  We help executives prepare for and lead board of directors meetings and maintain and update corporate minutes.  We frequently attend and act as secretary for company Board meetings and advise the Board on significant company legal and governance issues.  We also act as registered agent in Michigan for both local and out-of-state companies doing business within the state.
