At WGP Global, our renowned General Counsel services offer you, the client, the opportunity of having your own in-house counsel without going to market to hire one. 

Assessing risk and strategy has seen the role of a traditional in-house lawyer evolving, to the point where a General Counsel should be forming a strategic partnership with the client to ensure that every part of the business is looked after.  

The day-to-day legal needs of a business must be met proactively, not reactively, and is a pre-requisite with the onset of the coronavirus pandemic and all of the challenges that it has brought (and will bring). Some companies are still blissfully unaware of how they will be affected from a legal standpoint, however.
