Corporate Counsel, General Counsel or Startup Counsel – Explained

Corporate counsel is a team of lawyers hired by corporations, businesses, and organizations to provide legal advice in and out of the courtroom on various legal issues. In the corporate world, the legal work required from corporate counsel is broader than private practice. The lawyers must engage in proactive risk management in addition to legal tasks. The corporate counsel must have knowledge in different aspects of the law such as intellectual property, contracts, employment, labour, tax, antitrust, litigation, corporate securities, private matters, etc.

The general counsel provides advice to the CEO and corporate board on ethics, law, public policy and corporate citizenship. The business may also seek the help of the counsel to avert geopolitical risks. Apart from legal matters, the general counsel is often consulted for contract and agreement drafting to make the business more profitable.

To run businesses smoothly whether locally or globally, an organization will consult different law firms to hire lawyers with expertise in specific law. The in-house startup counsel will alleviate the pain of working with lawyers disassociated from the core business. Investing in a startup counsel will help corporations to be more economical and efficient in decision making.
