Areas of Practice

general counsel (on demand)

We assist companies with and without legal departments in their legal needs.

If your business has reached the point where you regularly need legal assistance, but you’re not quite ready to hire a full-time, in-house lawyer, we can be your solution.  We are certain that we can deliver quality and value in a way that is stress free, efficient, and customized to your needs.

When your in-house counsel gets too stretched because the business simply is growing beyond the in-house legal capacity or there is a major deal coming up outside the scope of the legal department, Peek Legal can jump in.

Hire a senior business lawyer with substantial in-house experience to handle your (overflow) work on an as-needed basis at a fraction of the cost of law firm rates. As an experienced general counsel, we are ready to support the executive team on a daily basis advice on all legal ans strategic matters.

We consider projects on a fulltime and part-time in-house basis, but also as-needed and on demand.
