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.  Register to become a client by clicking the button below. There, you’ll fill out a digital questionnaire about you and your company, sign up for your Client Portal account, and e-sign a retainer agreement with General Counsel Online. We’ll process your retainer, double-check for conflicts of interest and set up your Client Portal and Slack® channel. This doesn’t take long — our clients are usually good to go within a day or two.


Pay Your Retainer.  After your account is set up, you’ll receive an email with a login link to access your Client Portal. There, you’ll be able to select your retainer level and complete your purchase using either a company or personal credit card.


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. In the meantime, you can start accessing our legal advice and services through your Client Portal.

About the “Begin Registration” button:

We make it easy to retain and access our affordable, on-demand legal services. The button leads to the creation of an attorney-client relationship between GCO and your company.   We take our legal and ethical responsibilities very seriously — you are our client (rather than our customer), to whom we owe a variety of fiduciary duties. The relationship that we create with you is a formal retainer-governed relationship, even if it is made entirely online.  We trust that you are proceeding with commensurate seriousness.
