Why Do You Need a General Corporate Counsel Attorney?

The general counsel is in constant conversation with the CEO. They typically report directly to the CEO because the legal activities of a company are integral to all business decisions. General counsel positions are highly sought-after but not all attorneys are equipped to be general counsel.

One main aspect of a general counsel’s job is to keep on top of laws and regulations that might affect the organization and industry. That means, a general counsel’s day mainly consists of researching and conducting due diligence. The general counsel will also handle legal requests from all departments, stay ahead of legal compliance matters, give status reports on cases, and manage leasing and contracting agreements.

Not all companies need an in-house general counsel, but they do need corporate counsel representation; that is why it is imperative to hire outside counsel to handle all corporate matters for your business.

What Is General Corporate Counsel?

Every company requires a corporate general counsel, whether it comes in-house or through outside legal counsel. A general corporate counsel has the job of ensuring corporate compliance regulations within an organization and maintaining legal and ethical standards.

According to the Global Legal Department Benchmarking Report, when employing a law firm, the top reason for hiring a firm is for their general corporate counsel practice area.
