Whether a business is small, mid-sized, or large, there are a lot of moving parts involved. Those parts usually have legal implications, and those implications often have significant dollar amounts attached to them. Good legal counsel, that understands the business and all its machinations, inside and out, can be a valuable asset to any firm.

The New York City corporate lawyers at Singh Law Firm serve clients nationwide. We’re a boutique law firm founded in 2012, and our founding attorneys have over 45 years of combined experience. What’s more, that experience is wide-ranging. In addition to our deep understanding of law and procedure, the partners have all either ran public companies or served on the board. They know the law, but even more than that, they know the world where law and business intersect.
Corporations are governed by laws and regulations at both the state and federal levels. They are responsible to shareholders. All of this adds up to substantial legal responsibilities, and missteps can be costly. The first job of corporate counsel is to simply make sure that management is always apprised of their rights and obligations and stays in compliance. They will draft documents and contracts, saving valuable time for management, who can then focus on running the business.
Corporate counsel can and should step well beyond these basic responsibilities. It’s one thing to draft contracts and ensure compliance. It’s another to have the experience and business savvy necessary to offer sound advice on transactions, contracts, and more. A lawyer with a strong business background may be more likely to anticipate potential problems that could arise on anything related from compliance to a mergers and acquisitions deal. It’s that high level of service that we aim for with all of our clients.

Depending on their budgets, corporations may be tempted to avoid having regular counsel available to them, and instead try to bring in specific practice-area experts on an as-needed basis. Even allowing for our professional bias in favor of consistent counsel, there are practical reasons against this path.
It comes down to cost efficiency. An attorney who works with a firm regularly already understands the little details about the business and its inner workings—little details that can add up to big dollar amounts. A lawyer who comes in on a one-off assignment needs to put in extra billable hours to get up to speed and is still unlikely to have the same knowledge as regular counsel. The effort by the business to save money can end up being more costly—and sooner rather than later.
