Outside General Counsel

Entrepreneurs, investors, new and existing companies should all begin with a business plan. That plan must include a strong business legal strategy. Your business needs to have counsel readily available to counsel on business legal strategy. If you are unable to have in house counsel, then you must have an outside general counsel with an intimate understanding of your products, services, strengths weaknesses and goals so it can properly counsel you on its day to day business operations. Sometimes you need agreements to be reviewed, drafted or negotiated. Sometimes you have transactions that require legal assistance. Perhaps your business has due diligence or compliance matters that require legal guidance.

Mitchell is a business law firm that provides outside general counsel services to businesses, investors and entrepreneurs operating within the real estate, media, sports, entertainment and emerging technology sectors.
