What are the benefits of general counsel services for our company?

The primary benefits of having Spizzirri Law Offices Company Limited as your general counsel are a reduction in your legal costs and a redirection in those expenditures from damage control to company growth. Because we practice proactive, preventative law, we cut our clients’ litigation expenses drastically. That leaves the company with greater resources to direct toward their strategic plan, and we can spend more of my time advising on corporate development, such as mergers and acquisition. In short, instead of paying to save your company from losses, you’re paying to increase your company’s profits.

What types of legal services are included?

General counsel services are comprehensive. We generally begin with a total review of all your company’s documents: business plan, ownership agreements, employment contracts, shareholder agreements, company bylaws, company handbook, permits, insurance policies, loan contracts, commercial contracts, and commercial leases. This provides us with an intimate understanding of your enterprise and enables us to make specific recommendations on the steps you can take to minimize risk. We also work with your development officer to vet strategic opportunities. Finally, when disputes arise, we take decisive steps to preserve the value of the contract or relationship in question and get your operations back on track.

What are some of the ways general counsel helps a company manage risk?

There are two major sources of risk to businesses: liability and litigation. We help companies manage the risks of liability by helping them structure business assets with legal walls of separation designed to place assets outside the reach of claimants. We also advise companies on compliance with all applicable regulations to circumvent violations that would give rise to liability. Finally, we review a company’s liability insurance to determine whether there are gaps in areas of coverage or insufficient levels of coverage, and we advise companies on how to best remedy those problems. As for litigation, we conduct a thorough review of all company contracts, protocols and practices to spot potential conflicts and recommend preventative measures to keep disputes from arising.

Who are our clients?

The companies we tend to work with are small to medium-sized business with between $5 million and $55 million in annual revenues. Some clients are in downtown Atlanta, where our office is located, and in the State of Georgia. But we also serve companies throughout the United States, especially in New Jersey, New York, Florida, and Texas.
