Your Fractional General Counsel

GenCounsel fills that void for emerging or growing companies that increasingly need legal support but can’t justify hiring a full-time staff attorney or expanding their legal department. Our highly experienced business lawyers can serve as virtual in-house counsel for an important project or as outside general counsel at an affordable fixed rate.

The GenCounsel Advantage

GenCounsel is an innovative and dynamic business services platform providing value to business leaders and seasoned in-house counsel. Our experienced legal executives support the planning and execution of contracts, transactions and strategic ventures under a managed cost model.

Our core clients are small and mid-sized enterprises in the Philly area that do not have a legal department or whose in-house counsel is constantly overburdened. GenCounsel also serves larger companies whose legal departments seek additional brainpower or niche experience on a long-term or project basis.

Innovative Legal Services For Businesses Across The Philadelphia Metro

Partnering For Success

Our GenCounsel attorney is a very experienced lawyer with a deep knowledge of corporate finance, SEC reporting, and regulatory matters related to healthcare and life sciences businesses. We have worked closely together as colleagues and with him as a trusted legal advisor. He has consistently demonstrated his keen legal knowledge and ability to think and analyze as much as a businessperson as a thoughtful and experienced lawyer.”

A Background In Business Development And Corporate Counsel

The lead attorneys of GenCounsel have been bankers, entrepreneurs, executives and senior associates at business law firms, so they bring real-world business and financial sense to your endeavors. They also have more than a decade of relevant experience as in-house counsel and outside general counsel to numerous multimillion-dollar corporations.

Our members possess the skill sets and comprehensive experience to address commercial contracting, intellectual property, raising capital, employment, regulatory, corporate governance, mergers and acquisitions, litigation management and more. GenCounsel clients span every industry, from health care and life sciences to manufacturing and software as a service (SaaS).

“Down The Hall And Available To All”

A key differentiator for GenCounsel is that we can situate an attorney on-site at your offices for a contracted period. This gives management and key employees real-time access to legal counsel and helps us to help you by gaining a firsthand understanding of your operations and personnel. It’s the best of both worlds – literal in-house counsel while you are working through a major initiative without the long-term investment. Our clients come to view our on-site professionals as insightful strategists and vital members of their team.

Flexible Terms Tailored To Your Business Needs

We provide a palette of options suited to any budget. We typically work on a fixed monthly retainer well below the traditional hourly rate of law firms. Some clients opt to prepay for a mutually agreed number of hours per month while other companies enlist us on an hourly basis or project basis as needed.
