General Counsel Services In Baton Rouge And Beyond
Saving Clients Money By Providing As-Needed Legal Counsel
As large firms, it makes sense that Microsoft and Coca-Cola have in-house counsel. Legal issues and disputes will inevitably arise, and it’s cost-effective for large firms to pay the ongoing expense of employing in-house attorneys. But what makes sense for smaller firms?
The Baton Rouge general counsel lawyers of Carleton Shoenfelt & Chapman, provide in-house general counsel to dozens of businesses in the Baton Rouge area and throughout southern Louisiana. Our clients find that hiring us on an as-needed basis:
- Saves money
- Allows for the efficient handling of legal issues because we are fully familiar with our clients and their businesses before legal issues arise
