in house counsel

Many companies would benefit from having their own in-house lawyer, but simply cannot justify the expense.

In-House Counsel, an affiliate of Auslegal, provides lawyers on a daily basis over a set period of time. For example, if your business needed help with compliance or perhaps company secretarial issues on an on-going basis, In-House Counsel would be the ideal vehicle to engage, from as little as $50,000 per year.

The In-House Counsel service is aimed at businesses that are looking for:

  1. a way to budget for legal expenses by paying a fixed pre-set monthly amount;
  2. a good commercial lawyer to advise them on a wide range of issues including employment;
  3. some on-site attendance with constant availability for the rest of the time;
  4. a lawyer who can get to know their business backwards;
  5. a way to reduce reliance on an existing external law firms; and
  6. cost control and project management when an external professionals are engaged.

Businesses who subscribe to the In-House Counsel service obtain a well-qualified lawyer for a specified amount of time each week for an agreed-upon period. This service provides an opportunity for small enterprises to cultivate a strong relationship with a commercially astute lawyer, in effect their own ‘in-house counsel? and thus experience the benefits of employing a legal eagle with an in-depth understanding of their company without the exorbitant cost involved in hiring in-house counsels or other quality law firms for the same work.  In-house lawyers have an in-depth understanding of your business, products and strategy, and can therefore provide immediate and pragmatic business solutions, quickly and flexibly.
