In House General Counsel

Handle your overflow work at a fraction of the cost of law firm rates.  

Why LawTrades General Counsel

LawTrades has completely re-imagined the future of outsourced legal services for growing and mature businesses. We are a team of senior business lawyers with significant in-house experience who provide corporate counsel services as needed at a fraction of the cost of hiring a full-time general counsel or relying exclusively on law firms. Our solution maximizes performance by using the best legal talent, efficiently designed processes, and the latest technology to support the work of our clients.

Our Process

Even the right people and the right tools can still fail without the right execution. We ensure accuracy and efficiency with project roadmaps, milestone tracking, and dedicated project managers for constant communication with you and your team. Like a full time in-house counsel, LawTrades GC attorneys can have email addresses on your email system, work on-site with your legal department, and take other steps to be part of your management team. With our prior in-house experience and substantial industry knowledge, we develop an intimate knowledge of your business and external relationships.

Top-tier Advice, Without The High Price Tag 

Law firms carry massive overhead from their fancy offices, armies of associates, and minimum billable hour requirements. Naturally, to cover such expenses, fees rise, and clients usually get stuck with the bill. Our goal from the beginning has been the strip away law firm inefficiencies by leveraging technology so that we can pass those savings onto you. Since LawTrades is venture-backed, our focus is growth and customer satisfaction rather than taking huge margins.

LawTrades structures client relationships with a flexible manner to tailor to the companies we serve. Typically, for clients needing general counsel service without a predefined time commitment or a project basis, LawTrades charges a flat-fee rate or an hourly rate that is substantially less than a rate charged by the smallest traditional law firms. We always strive to provide upfront estimates for specific projects so that you can budget accordingly. For clients looking for a more consistent LawTrades GC service, with the attorney dedicating at least once a week to the company, we offer a flexible monthly subscription. The subscription rate is typically less than half the cost of hiring a full-time general counsel or using a big law firm.

Our Services

Document Review and Analysis

Working with high-stakes, deadline-driven projects is where we shine. Our experienced document review experts, under the guidance of your attorneys, will deliver quality results every time.

Regulatory & Compliance

LawTrades is helping clients build and manage responsive regulatory compliance teams with data driven results. We summarize current regulatory requirements and help you understand the potential impacts on your business. We also monitor changes and provide you with necessary updates.

Commercial & Litigation

Your day-to-day company operations will inevitably create a number of legal projects, including the drafting and negotiation of contracts, human resources matters, marketing issues, commercial leasing and complying with privacy laws. Many LawTrades attorneys have operational experience working at large companies to provide a deeper insight, which simply does not exist at traditional big law firms.

Corporate Transactions

If you are closing a corporate transaction, private financing, filing with the SEC, acquiring a business, issuing debt or reorganizing a business, our partner-level attorneys are here to help. Whether it’s to guide you through a transaction or supplement an external law firm, LawTrades attorneys can save you time and money.

Intellectual Property

LawTrades attorneys can act as an extension to your in-house capabilities, either to fill the role as the dedicated IP lawyer in your legal department or supplement your existing IP counsel. We provide veteran, partner-level IP lawyers on an as-needed basis to handle your overflow work at a fraction of the cost of retaining a law firm and without the overhead expense of hiring someone full-time.
Even the right people and the right tools can still fail without the right execution. We ensure accuracy and efficiency with project roadmaps, milestone tracking, and dedicated project managers for constant communication with you and your team. Even the right people and the right tools can still fail without the right execution.
