General Counsel Services

Is your business transaction ready?

Do you have a leadership succession coming up?

Will you be needing outside equity or debt in the foreseeable future?

All these situations require your corporate governance to be in good health as a matter of good business management, and to pass the due diligence of your strategic partners.

Our legal flexible General Counsel service offers a free legal health assessment so you can understand the overall legal health of your business.

If our assessment uncovers areas which might concern acquirers or funders, we’ll work alongside your business to get it into shape.

Our Independent General Counsel

We advise on legal matters from a business perspective. Our highly experienced lawyers have worked in house in business and they are familiar with the challenges of growing businesses. Now your business can access this expertise on a flexible basis at the fraction of the cost of employing an in house lawyer.

As experienced lawyers and executives, you’ll work alongside a lawyer who know how the commercial world works. Whereas most traditional law firms use inexperienced junior lawyers to service their clients, you only get direct access to an experienced General Counsel with previous experience built in global brands.

We are dedicated to understanding your business and being available to you to provide quality legal services and contribute as team members to your boardroom and senior management deliberations. We also ensure the company secretarial function is well run from a clerical and executive perspective.

For businesses needing easy and regular access to high quality legal advice and strategic guidance as they grow and develop, nexaGC is an ideal option. It is a cost-effective way of embedding a lawyer and independent director in your leadership team with a clear focus on your business goals.

“nexa’s service delivery and new law model provide a refreshing change from a lot of traditional firms. They are agile, responsive and great value for money, and, most importantly, think like business people, not just academic lawyers.” Group General Counsel and Board Secretary of a large, global commercial and retail bank.

“We highly recommend using the team at Nexa Law. They’ve made an effort to really understand our business and the risk management challenges we face across multiple markets. They are great value.” Henry Watkinson, COO, Headstart Advisers Ltd, a boutique, independently owned international investment advisory company, headquartered in the UK.
