General Counsel

High performing senior lawyers, acting as an extension of your team

As a small to medium sized business, we understand that you may need to draw upon legal services from time to time, but may not necessarily want or need an in-house legal team.

Jurit GC provides senior partner level general counsel (GC) legal services on an affordable and flexible outsourced basis, designed to meet your business needs.

Our senior lawyers (acting as your GC) work with financial directors and business owners to provide a range of proactive and pragmatic legal services.

We work with a range of clients including businesses based in the UK, as well as inward investors – typically from the US to the UK and out to the EMEA, acting as a local legal resource in an international context.

Our people, your business partner

We believe that a general counsel should be a key business and strategic adviser, not just a legal technician.

Jurit GCs have held senior executive positions in both national and multi-national organisations and bring a wealth of grown up, hands-on business experience and legal expertise to support you in solving challenges and maximising business opportunities.

Core to our success in achieving this, is our ability to get to know your company and develop trusted relationships with key individuals and stakeholders.

Working as an extension of your team, we will get to know your business so we can draw on our extensive business acumen to deliver legal services to support your business objectives.

Whilst you will invariably have a key working relationship with one Jurit GC lawyer, we can also draw upon the expertise of our wider team or specialist networks and other professional advisers, as required.

How we help

Our services span everything from day-to-day legal matters to high-level strategic projects or initiatives. We can also act as an integral member of your executive team, as required.

A flexible ‘on demand’ legal service, Jurit GC is designed to meet your needs, so fees can be agreed on an hourly, daily, project or retainer basis depending on your preference or project requirements.
