General Counsel Services
Talk to an Illinois Business Lawyer When YOU Need To
Large businesses have in-house attorneys available to answer questions on the fly and to handle day-to-day business transactions that benefit from legal review. Small and mid-sized businesses have many of the same legal questions and needs, but maintaining in-house counsel is not a cost-effective option.
The Gierach Law Firm provides the same function for dozens of business clients, but on a contractual basis, rather than in-house. As your general counsel, we are available to answer questions and provide due diligence review, to draft contracts and provide tax law advice.
If you are considering an ongoing relationship with a business attorney, contact our Naperville law office to schedule a consultation with lead attorney Denice Gierach.
The Benefit of an Ongoing Legal Relationship
The greatest benefit of working with a lawyer as your dedicated general counsel — rather than hiring a lawyer for one specific project at a time — is the superior degree of understanding we develop regarding your business and prompt service.
As a general counsel client, your call will be returned in the same business day.
By working with you and your company on an on-going basis, we learn about your business and your industry, your staff and your contracts, your financial condition and your tax situation. We are able to quickly step in, assess the legal, financial and tax ramifications of a proposed action, and give you clear legal guidance.
