General Counsel Services

Giles Law’s General Counsel Services offers businesses a method to efficiently

  • Provide you with regular access to legal advice;

  • Allow us to develop a relationship with you, to give us a strong working knowledge of the ins and outs of your business, culture, goals, and concerns;

  • Work with us to minimize the potential for litigation in the future;

  • Ensure we are available, with no conflicts, to represent you in the event litigation becomes unavoidable; and

  • Save you the cost of adding an in-house attorney (or another in-house attorney, or a temporary attorney with no background on your business) to your payroll. 

Our General Counsel Services are customized to fit each client’s needs and budget, and typically involves a monthly fee for a specified length of time.  At a minimum, the monthly fee provides you access to the following:

  • Complimentary visit to your local offices to meet key contacts and understand how your business works.  This visit can be as short as one hour or as long as five hours, depending on your preference.  Travel to anywhere within 50 miles of Phoenix is included.  Travel costs and time for locations farther away will be charged, but the attorney time for the preparation and visit remains complimentary.

  • A specified average number of hours of legal advice per month, based upon your needs.  Some months may be lower, and some may be higher.  These fluctuations will not affect your cost, so long as the hours remain within the agreed-upon average.  At the end of each year, we will provide you with an audit of your hours so you can determine whether you want to modify your monthly commitment.

    • Your hours of “legal advice” encompass any legal issues you have that we are qualified to handle, including but not limited to the following:
      • General, everyday legal and compliance issues, always with an eye toward positioning you to avoid litigation.
      • General Contract Review, Negotiations, and Editing, including licensing agreements
      • Corporate governance, including Board meetings and documents
      • Advising on Fiduciary Duties
      • Drafting, Enforcement, Review, Analysis, and/or Negotiation of Non-Compete, Non-Disclosure, and  Non-Solicitation Agreements
      • Drafting, Review, and Negotiation of Vendor and Professional Services Agreements, Including Developing and Maintaining Relationships
      • Drafting, Review, Analysis, and Negotiation of Commercial Leases
      • Risk Assessment, Management, and Mitigation
      • Managing Discovery and E-Discovery Responses, Including Responses to Subpoenas and Other Requests for Documents 
      • Employee Trainings to Emphasize Compliance and Corporate Ethics
      • Supervision and Evaluation of Local or Special Counsel
      • Arbitration, Mediation, and General Negotiation of Disputes
      • Litigation
      • Special and Customized Projects
  • You will benefit from our extensive national network of vetted attorneys.  We will utilize this network—from which we get no kickbacks or other compensation—to provide you with honest, transparent referrals to other counsel when you require an attorney outside our jurisdiction, or with a niche practice area that is beyond our expertise.   At your request, we can collaborate with, and/or supervise, any other attorneys to ensure your needs and business goals are being understood and met.

  • You will be our client, with conflicts checks complete, meaning that we can develop a long-term relationship, including litigation representation if necessary, without any concerns of conflicts arising in the future.
