General Counsel Lawyers in Ottawa, Ontario

General Counsel

The role of a General Counsel is to provide legal advice to a company. Many companies have in-house counsel, but for the vast majority of businesses, they simply use the services of a law firm skilled in general business law.

General Counsel Services can incorporate:

  • Leases

  • Employee issues

  • Independent contractors

For start-up operations, there can be lots of questions; and for small businesses, there are different issues that seem to crop up all the time. You want to have the right information to avoid greater problems and to have the judgment on hand for recurrent issues.
