Out-Sourced General Counsel

One of the most important decisions you can make when starting and running a business is finding a trusted advisor. Someone who has been in your shoes and had to face the problems on your plate, able to ask you the tough questions and make sure you have the answers.

Most lawyers can’t even come close.

With an intimate knowledge of the business, general counsel offers meaningful advice on day-to-day operations, effectively manages outside legal resources and provides strategic thinking on major business decisions. Many of our business clients find the same value in our services as outsourced general counsel.

Combine the trusted advisor you want with the business lawyer you need, and find in us a partner to help you every step of the way. With all of the dedication of an in-house general counsel at a fraction of the cost,

Towne, Ryan & Partners, P.C. can provide a dedicated attorney to serve as your general counsel. Many currently serve as outsourced general counsel for their clients. We understand that an intimate understanding of your business is the cornerstone of providing superior legal service.  Flexible pricing enables us to do so at a cost that fits your budget.

Our unique business model also enables us to assist our largest clients with general counsel functions. Special projects, unplanned absences and natural fluctuations in commerce can temporarily deplete in-house legal resources. Our attorneys deliver same-level general counsel services without the cost and lag-time associated with in-house counsel.
