Business Outside In-House Counsel

At Thrift McLemore, we understand the importance of providing ongoing legal resources to support the successful, ongoing operations of small to midsize businesses. While many companies find it cost prohibitive to employ full-time legal counsel, there is another option. Our Business Outside In-House Counsel program provides Atlanta, Alpharetta and Marietta companies with the legal guidance and advice needed to identify business and legal risks that could have a negative financial impact that places ongoing operations in jeopardy. In addition, our expert business attorneys can offer guidance on best practices to minimize or avoid future risks.

Through this program, our attorneys establish an ongoing relationship with these business clients, which affords us the opportunity to truly understand the operations, challenges, and goals of these organizations. This connection allows us to provide the best ongoing support and better anticipate future needs.
