Outside Legal Counsel Program


Miami business lawyer Oleg Otten Florida corporate transactions attorney Outside Legal Counsel

What is an Outside Legal Counsel program?

Miami business lawyer Oleg Otten offers an Outside Legal Counsel program for small and medium-sized corporate clients who want outside legal advice and assistance to handle routine legal issues without having to deal with the bureaucratic hierarchy and pay for the high overhead costs of large law firms.

When you hire an attorney as your outside legal counsel (as opposed to assisting with a single problem), the lawyer has an opportunity to gain an in-depth understanding of your business activities and unique characteristics. Therefore, as your company’s Outside Legal Counsel, Miami business lawyer Oleg Otten will be able to provide focused and cost-effective legal advice on issues and problems confronting your company both in a short and a long term.

Why hire an Outside Legal Counsel?

Many businesses rely on outside attorneys to act as their in-house general counsel or to help their in-house attorneys manage periodic increases in workload. Miami business lawyer Oleg Otten offers his services to both small and large businesses located in Florida. As an Outside Legal Counsel, he usually receives an email as soon as a client encounters business issues with legal implications. Since Oleg Otten has long-term relationships with his clients, he understands their current business operations, company’s history, and goals, and provides efficient, strategic, and innovative solutions to the clients’ business-related legal issues.

What if my company already has an in-house attorney?

If your company has a general counsel or in-house legal staff, Miami business lawyer Oleg Otten will serve as an overflow attorney: assisting your in-house legal team in managing spikes in workload or to cover certain areas of the business so that your in-house attorneys could concentrate on their high priority tasks.

If your company has no in-house attorneys, Otten Law Firm will act as your Legal Department: handle ongoing, routine legal matters at a fraction of the cost of a traditional counsel.

How will hiring Outside Legal Counsel help my business?

As Outside Legal Counsel for your company, Otten Law Firm will coordinate and oversee:

  • Commercial contracts, licensing and professional services agreements, and various business transactions
  • Corporate governance, board and shareholder resolutions, consents, directors meetings, shareholder meetings, and minutes
  • Counseling officers and directors on fiduciary duties and strategic considerations
  • Certain employment matters, including hiring, termination, and employee handbooks

Can my company afford hiring an Outside Legal Counsel?

The short answer is that you can’t afford not to have one.

Otten Law Firm offers the Outside Legal Counsel program that meets our clients’ diverse needs and budgets. While the cost of an in-house attorney is frequently too high for many small and medium-sized businesses, legal needs will still come up, requiring timely and cost-effective solutions. Often, such companies have to resort to seeking advice from attorneys at large firms (and at large fees), but don’t do it as much as necessary because of the high costs. In many cases, companies depend on a Human Resources professional to provide employment and even immigration guidance without assistance from a lawyer. These important legal decisions often have significant consequences, both legal and financial.

Otten Law Firm provides companies with the Outside Legal Counsel services to fill these voids and does so based on a cost-efficient and productive business model. Often, our Outside Legal Counsel services are provided on a flat-fee basis so that a company’s HR and legal professionals or management can seek legal and business advice without worrying about their attorney billing for each minute and each email. Your company can have an immediate access, on a daily basis if necessary, to our legal professionals for services that include contract review and drafting, project management, drafting letters and corporate protocols, and many other important tasks at dramatically reduced effective hourly rates.
