As outside general counsel, we believe that an attorney should be a key business advisor, not just a legal technician. Sbaiti lawyers provide a business-focused and practical approach to problem solving. Working closely with our clients, we gain an in-depth understanding of their business activities and objectives. Once we do, we are able to help growing companies speed time to closure on important business deals, protect valuable intellectual property, identify and creatively solve business issues, and avoid the financial burden of full-time legal staff.
In our role as outside general counsel, we typically receive the first call when our clients encounter business issues with legal implications. Acting as strategic advisors to our clients, we work swiftly and effectively with diverse practices throughout the firm to implement the right solutions and resolve the matter at hand with an eye toward the future.
Businesses with limited financial resources that are in need of recurring legal counsel but not full time staffed assistance can take advantage of an outside legal counsel to properly protect its interest while staying cost effective and flexible in its scheduling and workload.
