Founded in 2003, Executive Counsel offers privately-held and publicly-traded businesses the legal insight of an in-house general counsel and the business acumen of a senior executive.
Unlike traditional law firms, Executive Counsel attorneys have experienced the business law environment from both sides of the desk: working as general counsels and senior executives within some of the nation’s most innovative and fastest growing businesses; and as lawyers in private practice. Executive Counsel delivers exceptional value by providing a top law firm’s talent and tenacity, as well as a senior executive’s business savvy and experience, without the overhead of a traditional law firm, the limitations of a sole practitioner, or the full-time compensation package of a senior executive.
Executive Counsel leverages technology to operate as a highly efficient virtual practice, without the legacy brick-and-mortar trappings of traditional law firms. This enables Executive Counsel to provide businesses of all kinds and sizes with a level of business and legal experience that would otherwise be cost-prohibitive on a full-time basis or from a traditional law firm. And since most every lawyer on the Executive Counsel team has served as a senior executive and in-house general counsel, they bring clients an insider’s understanding of the complex issues confronting today’s business leaders. This extensive high-level experience enables Executive Counsel to identify business risks before they become problems and to provide proactive legal and business advice that less experienced corporate counsels and traditional outside counsel too often overlook.
On-call or on-site, Executive Counsel offers privately-held and publicly-traded businesses the legal insight of an in-house counsel and the business acumen of a senior executive.
