As a small business owner, you wear many hats. You may be the CEO, CFO, and COO all rolled into one. But what about when it comes to legal matters? Do you have someone on staff who can handle that? Or do you outsource to an outside counsel firm? And what about your day-to-day operations? Can you afford to hire a full-time COO? There are creative solutions that can help you get the legal and business support you need. Working with a firm that provides General Counsel + COO (or C-Suite) can help take your business to the next level.

Providing GC+ COO as an all-inclusive offering is a creative solution for businesses that need legal support (and sometimes more) but are not ready for the infrastructure of both a General Counsel AND a Chief Operating Officer.

Unlike hiring in-house counsel or traditional outside counsel, our General Counsel arrangements assist in solving day-to-day legal and business issues and allow us to gain a working knowledge of your business operations. The best attorneys genuinely understand your business. With Lopp Mathias Law, you work with an attorney that understands legal and operational issues, opening the door for your business to manage legal issues, operational issues, litigation, risk mitigation, and sharpen policy and process.

In 2020, the CEO of one of our client companies passed away. Because we were so closely integrated with the management team, using technology daily to message and communicate with them and understand their business, we were able to step in immediately, offer operational and HR support, and assist with everything the business needed to change under urgent circumstances. This is where Legal+ really comes together. Helping clients gain peace of mind that they can survive and thrive with a team that is all in.

What is covered in a GC+ COO Program? Legal+ GC+ COO is a comprehensive program that takes on the legal and operational tasks necessary for small businesses.
