General Counsel

At Schwab, we serve as an outside general counsel to various companies and associations, regardless if they have in-house attorneys or not. All of our services are available to clients throughout Texas—many of which operate within highly regulated environments.


What We Offer to Corporate Entities

Oftentimes, in-house attorneys have a lot of obligations and new projects that can overwhelm an already stretched legal department. With that being said, Schwab is available to provide our services for a company's existing legal team.

As for those who do not have in-house capabilities, we also offer general counsel services. We help companies by navigating transactions, assisting employment matters, and other legal concerns.

Legal Assistance at Your Service

By providing customized options for general counsel support, we can give the best legal solutions tailored to our client's needs and budgets. Get in touch with us today for more information.
