Outsource Your In-house Counsel

Virtual Lawyer is an interesting term – basically it’s having your own In-House Counsel on a part time basis. The majority of major corporations have full time in-house counsel function yet the small to medium sized enterprise doesn’t have the same latitude to fund such a resource on a full time basis. However, having a hands-on senior lawyer operating as part of your management team can provide value in a way that a transactional lawyer simply cannot. At Teddington, we believe that good legal counsel received at the formation of strategy and appropriate documentation of contracts and deals protects the business from making incorrect assumptions or mistakes.

Teddington Legal provides in-house legal support in the form of a “Virtual Lawyer” on a part-time or as-needs basis to deliver strategic support and to provide legal underpinning of business decision-making. You don’t have to be a large corporation to have in-house counsel as part of your management team. The Virtual Lawyer service provides the support and convenience of your own in-house legal counsel without the associated costs of a full time employee or major law firm bills. The key reason an In-House Counsels is so effective is that they understand the business, it’s culture, products, personal and more importantly strategic operational goals. Expecting an external transactional lawyer to have this level of intimacy when asking them to document or put protections around certain deals is not always successful.
