Cornerstone Counsel can manage all your in-house legal operations until the legal workflow volume justifies investing in a full-time in-house lawyer. We are also set-up to draw on our deep experience to handle a defined, “one and done” resolution of a legal issue or project.
To manage your in-house legal operations, our process typically involves four phases:
Conduct interviews with key personnel to understand your business and legal and regulatory compliance operations, including reviewing corporate formation and investor documents, key customer and vendor contracts, IT network architecture and data flows, intellectual property assets, and policies, process and controls.
Deliver a blueprint for establishing or closing any gaps in your baseline in-house legal operations.
Develop trackers for monitoring your legal matters, contracts, intellectual property assets, etc. to give C-level management transparency into the volume, nature and status of legal matters.
Develop policies, processes and controls required by law, regulation or good corporate governance.
Day to day legal counseling, contract drafting and negotiations, regulatory compliance monitoring, advising on employee issues, cross-functional collaborations with business teams for product development and new contract templates and more.
Transfer our know-how about the company’s business and legal operations, key legal and regulatory risks, and status of legal matters in progress to your full-time in-house lawyer.
