By hiring an external General Counsel, emerging companies will not only see savings in their outside counsel spend, but will also benefit from having a dedicated counselor that is committed to their success.

There is a time in every emerging company’s growth where legal bills start to mount and executives contemplate whether its the right time to hire the company’s first full-time attorney. Prior to engaging a full-time GC however, many companies may benefit from hiring a part-time outside general counsel. After having served as full-time general counsel, in-house counsel at a publicly traded technology company, outside counselors, and regulators, we stand ready to advise you on whatever legal issues you may encounter.


Your passion is our priority.


Viebrock + De Nittis can act as your company’s chief legal officer, saving you time and money by avoiding the hiring & paying of a full time executive salary.

The general counsel attorney handles a variety of legal issues including, compliance issues, employment relations, public policy advocacy, among other issues.

A general counsel’s broad range of responsibilities also means their opinion is critical in a company’s decision-making process. As the company’s principal lawyer, the general counsel can help you with the following:

Why Consider a General Counsel Attorney?

While engaging a law firm to advise you on standing up your business is the right place to start, having a general counsel who you can consult on a wide range of legal issues on a day-to-day basis is the next step for your company

They Act As The Legal Gatekeepers

Many business owners and their management teams do not have the legal skills required to identify emerging and critical legal issues. This lack of legal knowledge can lead to huge losses for the company. A general counsel fills this gap by providing the required legal knowledge. With their skills and experience, they act as legal gatekeepers who ensure the company is not caught off-guard by emerging legal issues. 

They Have Substantive Legal Knowledge

In addition to the skills that allow them to be legal gatekeepers for the company, the right GC for your company will have legal expertise that is relevant to the company operations. Our attorneys have substantive knowledge on employment law, corporate law, mergers and acquisitions, regulations, and. compliance.

They Have Established Relationships With Your Business

One of the main reasons why you should hire an outside GC is that he or she becomes part of the company. You need someone like that to not only help you resolve legal disputes but also to help you develop strategic plans for the business.

They Help With Business Strategic Planning

The fact that general counsel attorneys have an established legal relationship and intimate knowledge of the company affairs means you can call on them anytime. Consequently, they provide a prompt response to all emerging legal issues. Essentially, by combining their legal and business expertise, the general counsel assists the company to make crucial strategic business decisions.

Having a local Charlotte lawyer who knows the ins and outs of your business will alleviate the stress of managing your relationship with outside counsel. As the business owner or manager, you can now focus on strategic planning as the attorney deals with legal matters.
