Ongoing Legal Counsel For Businesses
Large businesses often employ an in-house attorney or entire legal department to address legal issues as they arise. For small- to mid-sized businesses, hiring in-house counsel may not be financially feasible. Yet all businesses need an attorney familiar with their operations to address ongoing legal needs.
At Neumann & Associates, Inc., we fill that gap by serving as outside legal counsel for small to midsize businesses. Our lawyers have extensive experience working with businesses of all sizes across diverse industries. We invest the time to get to know our business clients – to understand their brands, their unique places in the market, the challenges they face and their visions for the future. From that vantage point of familiarity, we offer strategic guidance to help them overcome obstacles and thrive.

FAQ About Our Legal Counsel Services
Below are answers to common questions about our services.
Can I hire you to work directly as in-house counsel for my company?
While our lawyers don’t serve as in-house counsel, we do play a similar role as outside general counsel. This means that clients can call on us for legal services and advice any time they need us, but we do not work full-time for the company. This arrangement is more cost-effective for our clients. It provides them with flexibility as well as stability in having legal counsel readily on hand.
My business already has in-house general counsel. Can we still hire you?
Yes, our attorneys can work with your in-house counsel to address legal issues that are beyond the scope of their capacity, knowledge or experience.
