Fractional General Counsel Services
In addition to providing one-time project-specific legal advice to individual clients as well as company clients of all industries and sizes, Cathy also offers Fractional General Counseling services.
Fractional General Counsel is an innovative approach to legal services for growing and mature businesses. I am a seasoned business lawyer with substantial in-house experience. I provide corporate counseling services as needed at a much-reduced cost of either hiring a full-time, executive-level general counsel or relying exclusively on various law firm counsel.
My clients fall into one of three categories: (1) start-ups with immediate legal needs who no longer wish to rely upon self-help, (2) those without in-house counsel who need regular, on-going legal support but do not wish to hire a full-time in-house lawyer, and (3) those with in-house counsel who do not wish to add more full-time resources to their existing in-house staff.
Like a full time in-house counsel, I can be part of your management team. I can get up to speed quickly on the nature of your business and, like an in-house lawyer, develop an intimate knowledge of your internal and external relationships. I aim to be affordable and responsive to your myriad of needs. I offer a pure on-demand hourly rate (but can provide hard estimates for specific projects) or we can negotiate a weekly or monthly rate for dedicated hours to your business.
I look forward to working with you and helping you achieve your strategic goals.
