Outside General Counsel & Legal Support (OGCLS)
BALL PLLC’s Outside General Counsel & Legal Services (OGCLS) Practice Group handles strategic and day-to-day legal matters at a fraction of the cost of either full-time in-house counsel or law firms. OGCLS clients have a close working relationship with a lead attorney and designated team who know their business well. Clients can access any of our other attorneys at any time for answers requiring special expertise. Our OGCLS team members average over 30 years of industry and legal experience and, for clients who subscribe to an OGCLS plan, they all bill at the same rate (One Rate™), so clients know what they are paying and always know they are speaking with someone who understands their needs.
We can come to you.
Depending on your company’s needs, we can work at your office to be available to your team on site. BALL PLLC’s alternative fee structure means having us on site won’t let your cost get out of control.
We can get up to speed quickly.
With our team’s extensive prior in-house experience and industry knowledge, we get up to speed quickly. This enables us to respond quickly and, at your discretion, take the initiative, like an in-house lawyer.
We work based on your rules.
We work hard to understand the key drivers and practical risks for your business, to ensure that our legal services support the achievement of your business objectives, are compatible with your company’s values and internal procedures, and preserve external relationships.
“It has been my pleasure to work with Aaron Ball since I joined Energistics in 2008. As Outside General Counsel, Aaron has served our company with honor and distinction, always there for our Directors and staff with timely, considered, erudite counsel. Perhaps as important, Aaron’s compassion and kindness has seen us through challenging times. He was one of the first people I called upon as Acting CEO in 2015 when our CEO passed away unexpectedly and he helped us through a difficult transition period. I would recommend Aaron to anyone looking for a smart attorney with a good heart. Aaron would be an asset to any company.”
