Test The way in which I provide part time or virtual corporate counsel services is to a large extent based upon the way in which an in house counsel would provide services to a corporation, except the services are on a part-time basis. Throw out your perceptions of the traditional legal services delivery model as practiced by the Bay Street firms and throw out as well the hourly rate billing model. I have spent almost ten years of my career in-house and I firmly believe that an ‘in house’ lawyer can provide superior value added services and advice because he knows the business, its weaknesses and its strengths, as well as the industry in which operates.

Services I can provide General Counsel services with regular trips to your offices in the GTA so that I can learn about your business and your industry as well as work with your staff as part of your management team. As part of that management team, I will work to efficiently manage legal risks, direct any outside counsel services and litigation, and perform as many of the following functions as you instruct such as: - Basic corporate services – minute book updates, Articles of amendments, share issues; - Advising on business and legal risk – risk management and insurance; - Advising HR on employment matters – (could include everything from drafting employment or independent contractor agreements to advising on ways to terminate employees) ; - Review of standard commercial agreements and supplier contracts; - Negotiating key agreements/drafting key agreements (domestic and international); - Regulatory compliance; and - Other services that are identified and agreed upon. Billing is based on a negotiated fee structure and is usually monthly. The aim is to set up a retainer system that provides your company with a block of service days per month. Some months you will use more than your allotment, other months less ; processes will be in place to ensure that it all balances out in the end.
