The Role of a General Counsel Lawyer

A general counsel lawyer plays a vital role in providing comprehensive legal guidance and support to businesses across various industries. They serve as a key advisor and advocate, ensuring that businesses operate within the bounds of the law and effectively navigate legal challenges.

Our general counsel attorneys have considerable experience working in-house with various types of companies and organizations, serving as their primary legal advisors. Unlike external counsel, who are hired on a case-by-case basis, our general counsel lawyers have a deep understanding of companies’ operations, cultures, and goals. We provide ongoing legal advice and representation, acting as a strategic partner in managing legal matters.

We offer general counsel services to Florida businesses of all sizes and across a wide variety of industries. 

This includes but is not limited to: 

  • Small and medium businesses
  • Corporations
  • Start-ups 
  • Partnerships 
  • Nonprofits 
  • Large companies 

By working with our Tampa general counsel attorneys, you can proactively address legal issues, mitigate risks, and ensure compliance with applicable laws and regulations.
