Elevate Your Tech Startup: The Indispensable Role of a Fractional General Counsel

BLUF (Bottom Line Up Front): An attorney is worth more than the paper they draft. An attorney on your team is a trusted advisor, helping guide your startup’s strategic vision.

In the relentless pursuit of innovation and growth, tech startups often find themselves navigating a legal landscape fraught with complexities. In this dynamic environment, having a legal ally who can provide expert counsel without the full-time commitment is a strategic imperative.

Enter the Fractional General Counsel (FGC), a tailored solution to safeguard your startup's legal interests without breaking the bank.

Let's delve into the compelling reasons why hiring a Fractional General Counsel is a game-changer for tech startup CEOs.

The Top 5 . . .


Tech startups, by their nature, operate on lean budgets, and allocating resources is a delicate balancing act. A Fractional General Counsel offers an elegant solution, allowing startups to access top-tier legal expertise without the financial burden of a full-time hire. This cost-effective approach enables CEOs to benefit from seasoned legal counsel precisely when needed, optimizing the allocation of resources for maximum impact.

Strategic Vision

Tech startups thrive on agility, innovation, and rapid decision-making. A Fractional General Counsel with a strategic mindset can seamlessly align legal strategies with the fast-paced nature of the tech industry. This strategic alignment ensures that legal advice doesn't hinder but enhances the innovative spirit of the startup, contributing directly to business goals.

Risk Mitigation

The startup landscape is rife with potential legal pitfalls. A Fractional General Counsel is well-equipped to identify and mitigate risks proactively. By implementing robust risk management strategies, they safeguard the business against unforeseen legal challenges. Additionally, the commitment to discipline ensures vigilant regulatory compliance, providing a solid foundation for sustained growth.

Dynamic Contract Management

Contracts form the backbone of business relationships in the tech sector. A Fractional General Counsel, skilled in negotiation and contract management can transform these documents into strategic tools. By ensuring contracts align with business objectives and foster positive relationships, they contribute to the long-term success of the startup.

Dispute Avoidance

Disputes can drain both personnel and financial resources - quickly! So, isn’t it better to avoid disputes altogether? Well, obviously, but it’s not always possible. A Fractional General Counsel’s ability to identify and mitigate potential disputes ensures that legal challenges do not impede your startup's progress but create opportunities for growth and greater scalability.

Sounding Board

Perhaps we saved the best for last. There’s so much uncertainty with any startup, and this is especially true with tech startups. With so many development costs for the chance of going to market, risk-reward decisions need to be made on nearly an everyday basis. Listen, we get it (we’re working on our own Legal-Tech business, too, BTW). Decisions can be easier to make when you’ve got someone to talk to who can provide relatable and meaningful insight.

The Marine Corps Advantage: Discipline, Leadership, and Mission-Driven Excellence

Now, imagine augmenting the benefits of a Fractional General Counsel with the unique qualities of a former Marine Corps Officer. Discipline, adaptability, and a mission-oriented approach become integral components of your legal strategy. Decision-making under pressure, a hallmark of Marine Corps training, aligns seamlessly with the rapid pace of tech startups. Attorney Greg, with a military background, becomes not just a legal advisor but a strategic ally, ready to face and conquer challenges in the pursuit of your startup's mission.

How Much Does a Fractional General Counsel Cost?

Just like any law school answer, “it depends.” At least with more traditional law firms. We get startups, and we get financial restrictions. We also REALLY want to help you and be part of your team.
