Kathleen M. Premo, Member of the Firm in the Health Care & Life Sciences practice, in the firm’s St. Petersburg office, was quoted in Legal Dive, in “How a Law Firm Can Provide General Counsel Services to Legal Departments,” by Lyle Moran.

Following is an excerpt:

When Kathleen Premo served as a general counsel, there were times in which she wished she could quickly tap outside expertise to help her team manage an array of projects, including those involving specialty legal issues.

Now at the Epstein Becker & Green law firm, Premo is a member of its General Counsel Services practice featuring former in-house professionals that aid legal department leaders with a variety of tasks. This assistance includes helping companies enter new markets, launch new products and undertake regulatory change projects.

The growing Epstein Becker & Green GC team with nearly 40 attorneys also offers mentoring to new general counsel and can plug gaps when a legal department is short-staffed.

The approach of offering outside general counsel services is one other law firms are employing as well to secure business from companies and organizations across industries.

“In this model, our clients are able to access individuals who have a true sense of what it takes to serve a business client from the inside and can support those legal teams and those business executives in a business-forward manner,” Premo told Legal Dive.
