What Are the Benefits of External Legal Counsel

Do you know the value of working with an external legal team? While it can sometimes feel daunting to work with an outside team, the reality often is that having an objective third party serves as a significant advantage that makes it easier to obtain your goals and handles disputes.

At Paperclip Law, we understand the importance of partnering with a skilled team of legal experts and are happy to partner with businesses of all sizes to help assist with their corporate needs. From growing your startup to managing the day-to-day needs of a large corporation, we’re here to make sure you’re covered when it matters the most and that you always have peace of mind. Read on to learn more about the benefits of partnering with an external legal firm below!

No Room For Strangers

One of the primary concerns business owners have, and rightfully so, when it comes to working with an outside firm is that their lawyers won’t truly get to know them. This is completely understandable given the (unfortunately) all too common experience of only connecting with your legal team when trouble is afoot, dealing with constantly inflated bills, and ultimately partnering with teams that prefer to be distant and removed.

At Paperclip Law, we believe that the only way to truly serve our clients is to actually get to know you and form longstanding relationships that leave you feeling confident that we have you covered when it matters the most, and that we always have your best interests in mind. We’re never ones to hide behind stuffy suits and boardrooms and are more than happy to meet you where you’re at and build for the future today. Benefits of partnering with our team include:

No Headaches

Let’s face it, navigating legal jargon and constantly changing standards is no one’s idea of a picnic. With that being said, working with a skilled team helps to remove the many roadblocks and headaches that you can encounter otherwise. Having qualified counsel on your side means no more unanswered questions, no more “educated guesses”, and most importantly, far less costly mistakes that put your company at risk. Paperclip Law takes a collaborative approach to our counsel, making sure you understand each recommended step and feel equipped to move forward with matters such as:

  • Incorporation
  • Shareholders agreements and joint venture
  • Employee compensation
  • Apply for copyrights and patents
  • HR advisory, and more.


One of the most important benefits of working with an outside legal firm is that you have the peace of mind of knowing that you’ve got someone ready to play both offence and defence when it counts. Disputes, revisions, IP claims and more can be a nightmare without proper assistance, but with Paperclip, you’ll always have the help you need. Our team is here to help a wide array of matters, including:

  • Intellectual Property defence
  • Dispute resolution
  • Handling mergers and acquisitions
  • Corporate restructuring
  • Unexpected conflicts and challenges as they arrive.

Simply put, we’re here to support you when the going gets tough, and celebrate every little victory.


Knowing you have a legal team that understands your needs and will always step up to the plate removes countless hassles and ultimately allows you to have more time on your hands to deal with the most important aspect of running your business: actually running your business. With us at the helm to help you sort through issues as they arise and plan for the future at the same time, you’ll be able to save your energy for handling other aspects of day-to-day operations. It really is a simple as that!
