Get the Online, On-Demand Legal Help You Need and Start Making Better Business Decisions

Need legal help for your business, but don’t have the budget to hire an in-house attorney?  With General Counsel Online, you get on-demand legal services at a predictable subscription-based price. We’re convenient, online and affordable — giving you access to legal help anytime, anywhere.

Become a GCO client and we’ll help you minimize risk, maintain compliance and gain a competitive edge.  Here’s how to get started:

Do Your Homework. Retaining a general counsel is a big first step toward business growth — and it’s not a decision you should take lightly. We’re as interested in your business’s success as you are, and that’s why we recommend that you learn more about who we are and what we offer. You can also schedule a commitment-free introductory call to talk through your needs so that you can be sure we’re the perfect fit for your business.
Make it Official.  Review your options for retainer levels of service and click the button below to choose one of them, e-sign a retainer agreement, and finally purchase your retainer.  We’ll process your retainer, double-check for conflicts of interest and set up your Client Portal and Slack® channel.
Start Getting Legal Help.  We’ll schedule a kick-off meeting with you to understand your company’s current or potential legal needs and issues.  We’ll also ask you to complete an online Intake  “Interview” to help set the agenda for that meeting.    In the meantime, you can start accessing our legal advice and services through your Client Portal and communicating securely with us via Slack.

About our “Buy Button” →

Unlike most e-commerce websites you have dealt with,  our Buy Button leads to the creation of an attorney-client relationship between your company and GCO.  We strive to make this online relationship easy and affordable, but we nevertheless take our legal and ethical responsibilities very seriously — you are our client, not our customer, and we owe a variety of fiduciary duties to you.  

We trust that you are proceeding with commensurate seriousness…
