Fractional General Counsel Service

In today's dynamic business landscape, legal support is not just a necessity but a strategic asset.  However, not every business requires, or can afford, a full time in-house General Counsel.  Recognizing this gap, the Law Office of Jennifer M. Settles is proud to introduce a solution tailored to the unique needs of small, medium, and growth-oriented businesses:  the Fractional General Counsel service.  Contact us at (602) 617-3938 for more information, or visit our website at to schedule a free consultation and learn more.   

Fraction General Counsel, Jennifer M. Settles

Meet your Fractional GC:  Jennifer M. Settles

Our Fractional GC service is provided by attorney Jennifer M. Settles, who brings over 25 years of in-house counsel and big-law experience to the table.  She has represented clients across numerous industries on all sides of the deal-table, and has handled countless varied transactions, from simple to highly complex.  With Jennifer, you get clear, helpful, and tenacious advocacy, and never any drama or friction.  

Customized Legal Support for Every Client

Our Fractional GC service is not a one-size-fits-all solution.  We understand that each business has its own set of challenges and requirements.  Therefore, our service is highly customized to meet the specific needs of each client, ensuring that you get the most relevant and effective legal support that you need.

Ideal for Growing Businesses

If you're managing a small to medium-sized business, steering a growth-oriented enterprise, or if your internal Legal Department is shorthanded, our Fractional GC service is designed for you.  Many businesses in this segment do not have the need or resources for a full-time, in house General Counsel.  Our Fractional GC service fills this gap, providing you with top-tier legal representation without the overhead associated with a full-time hire.

Flexible, Predictable Pricing

We offer our Fractional GC services on a fixed-fee monthly subscription basis, with flexible service packages tailored to your needs and budget.  To ensure our services continue to align with your evolving business goals and financial planning, we review our pricing and services with you on a regular basis.  This approach provides predictable legal spending, helping you manage your budget more effectively.

Proactive and Forward-Looking

As your Fractional GC, our focus is on being proactive and forward-looking, rather than reactive.  We aim to anticipate potential legal issues and address them before they become problems, saving you time, resources, and stress in the long run.  

Comprehensive Legal Services

As your Fractional GC, Jennifer will essentially serve as your part-time General Counsel, offering a wide range of services tailored to your needs, which may include:

  • Formation of New Entities
  • BOI FinCen Filings
  • Corporate Governance
  • Corporate Finance
  • Review, Redline, Negotiate, and Draft Commercial Contracts
  • Mergers & Acquisitions
