Will the General Counsel retainer work for me?
You are probably used to working with an attorney by guessing how quickly or slowly they will work on a matter instead of exclusively focusing on the outcome. As a result, you probably dread having to pick up the phone to call your outside counsel because you are uncertain about the cost of a call, an email, or even making small talk. After all, can you really afford to develop a relationship with your attorney when they are billing you by the hour?
You want a partner – someone to help you think through those thorny issues that are an intricate mix of business and legal complexities and you want a problem solver who brings a ton of legal expertise and experience with nonprofits and philanthropies.
If you have thought any of these things, you are a great candidate for the General Counsel retainer.
The General Counsel retainer allows you to show up differently. It allows you to partner with TCLF and we specialize in peace of mind. TCLF does not have transaction-based relationships with clients; we have meaningful relationships. You can reach out to us at anytime and, most importantly, depend on us to know your organization, your work, and provide you with the legal support and advice, and thought partnership and leadership you want.
