Most startups and growing businesses need legal help. However, they do not need a full-time general counsel… yet. But what they do need is a legal counsel who is committed to their company. Who they can build a long-term relationship with. Who will have the institutional knowledge to know whether a particular legal strategy fits with the goals of the company. And they need someone who will not only be looking out for their company, but thinking ten steps ahead.
