Virtual General Counsel

Our Virtual General Counsel service is a great legal solution for businesses of all sizes. 

We work with fast-growth start-ups who need ongoing legal support whilst understanding what kind of permanent legal resource they need. We will help build a legal function, then recruit and onboard an in-house lawyer, staying in touch to provide strategic and major project support. 

For SMEs, our lawyers operate as external in-house counsel focussing on day-to-day legal support, working with the business for the long term. 

For larger and international businesses, we provide interim General Counsel support for periods of absence or gaps in resource. 

We know this isn’t a new concept. That lots of businesses offer this flexible legal support. So why work with one of the team at Arbor Law? 

All our lawyers have the quality hallmark of many years leading teams in law firms and in industry, so you technical excellence and commitment to client care is a given. What sets us apart is our commercial nouse and ability to slot in to your business and work with your stakeholders and team to get the best business outcomes. 

Whatever you need in terms of senior legal support, our Virtual General Counsel service can be designed and tailored to meet your business needs and budget.  It’s the ideal solution for businesses who need legal guidance without hiring permanent resource.
