GLS General Counsel™

A world class GC with the backing of a global law firm

The Problem

Your business has grown rapidly and you now need real strategic leadership from your legal function. You need a blue chip General Counsel.  

Related challenges include needing someone who:

  • knows your business inside and out
  • understands your industry and overall operating context
  • consistently demonstrates good judgement
  • talks like a businessman, not a lawyer
  • your business will be happy to deal with
  • can remain humble - even when your business does not agree
  • can demonstrate ownership and leadership in equal measure
  • is a master of management and delegation
  • can perform miracles with finite legal resources
  • has competency across a broad range of vital legal areas

You know a world-class GC can meet these challenges. Wouldn’t it be good if you could access such a world class GC but without the full-time cost?

The GLS Solution

GLS General Counsel™ gives you access to your own world class GC on a part-time basis allowing you to benefit from a top tier, in-house, legal function but without the full-time cost. 

Not only does GLC General Counsel™ give you access to a world-class GC, it also provides you with access to a range of resources that go well beyond what is available to most in-house teams, without any extra cost to you.

GLC General Counsel™ provides an ecosystem-specific, tailored, legal leadership and resourcing solution that can operate on a “plug n play” basis or bring leadership to existing but more junior legal resources.

All our GLS General Counsel™ resources are drawn from a unique pool of lawyers who have both leading private practice pedigree and have also served as actual GCs at major blue chip organisations. 

Problem solved.
