Business Owners Find Value in Outside General Counsel

As a business owner, you have a lot on your plate. It takes work to keep track of everything from managing operations and finances to staying compliant with regulations. However, one area that many business owners overlook is legal support. An outside general counsel (OGC) can provide the guidance and resources to navigate the legal landscape and protect your business interests.

Role of the Outside General Counsel

One of the current issues facing business owners is the increased focus on data privacy and security. With the rise of cybercrime and data breaches, ensuring your business takes the necessary steps to protect sensitive information is more important than ever. An OGC can help you develop and implement policies and procedures to safeguard your data and advise you on compliance with laws such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).

Another current issue is the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many businesses were forced to adapt to new ways of operating, such as remote work and virtual meetings. An OGC can assist with the legal implications of these changes, such as drafting and reviewing contracts for remote services and advising on compliance with laws related to workplace safety and employee benefits.

Additionally, an OGC can provide valuable insight and guidance on various legal matters, such as intellectual property, employment law, and commercial disputes. A dedicated legal expert can help you make informed decisions, avoid potential legal pitfalls, and resolve disputes more efficiently.

OGC can be a valuable asset for any business owner. An OGC can help you navigate the legal landscape, protect your business interests, and comply with regulations by providing legal support and guidance. In addition, with the current issues facing business owners, having an OGC on your team can give you peace of mind and allow you to focus on running your business.
