The Outside General Counsel
A “general counsel” is a company’s most important strategic asset and the primary source of all initial legal inquiries and oversight. Many businesses cannot justify employing a full-time general counsel and a corresponding legal department. Likewise, extensive and ongoing business counsel provided by a traditional law firm can be prohibitively expensive. Brewer Law LLC offers an alternative to these models by providing general counsel-level services tailored to fit the varied legal needs of each business client. We work with our clients to structure long and short-term representation that encompasses all of the advantages of employing an in-house general counsel.
As outside general counsel, we work with our clients to analyze risk, assist with deal strategy, provide comprehensive business counsel and manage the cost and scope of litigation. Our extensive partnerships with other law firms and specialized counsel (i.e. tax, securities, litigation) allow us to provide the representative services of a large law firm at a reduced cost.
Brewer Law LLC currently serves as outside general counsel to a wide variety of businesses. These include insurance service companies, real estate holding companies, software service providers, real estate brokers, lenders, consulting groups and even a large, US-based fuel additive company. We also act as “family office” general counsel for individuals and families with extensive real estate and business portfolios.
