Being Your Business Lawyer
Just because a business does not have a legal department does not mean that it does not have legal needs. To assist small businesses or companies that do not have their own on-staff legal team or are just starting off, The Hollywood Lawyer in Los Angeles offers a shared general counsel program. In this program, the company pays a monthly retainer, and in return they have access to an experienced business law attorney whenever legal matters arise. This serves as a cost-effective alternative to having a lawyer on staff, and allows you to feel confident that your legal needs are in the hands of a skilled California attorney. For those not needing general business attorneys, we also provide representation on individual deals or case basis.
To learn more about the shared general counsel program or how we can manage or represent in your business legal needs, please contact us by creating your online law office account and (1) calling us at 1-323-300-4184 or (2) filling out our online form.
How a Shared General Counsel Program Can Help You
We offer the shared general counsel program on a monthly flat-fee basis. This means that you will know the full cost of the program up front.

The program is especially beneficial for:
- new start-ups
