Your Outside Counsel Resource

At Northwest Outside Counsel & Litigation Management Service, we partner with our clients to provide experienced, timely and business-savvy legal advice without the burden and expense of having a full-time lawyer on your payroll.  Working with a flexible fee structure that allows you to manage your costs, we serve as a valuable, on-call resource to help you achieve your needs and goals efficiently and with no compromise in quality.  We provide the expertise gained from years as both an in-house General Counsel and law firm partner, yet unlike large law firms, we are efficient, cost-effective, and responsive.

Whether your need is for a regular, part-time General Counsel to serve as an ongoing part of your team, for someone to handle discrete tasks on an “as-needed” basis, or for someone to free up your executive time by handling a major project such as managing a litigation matter or conducting an internal investigation, you can be assured that Northwest Outside Counsel & Litigation Management Service will provide you with the help you need.

Contact us to discuss how we can partner as your “outside general counsel” to meet your legal needs and help your business to grow and thrive.
