Outside General Counsel Practice

GAILLE PLLC serves as “outside general counsel” to energy companies lacking their own in-house legal departments and startups. In doing so, we serve as a trusted, on-call counselor and advisor to business owners, managing all of their legal matters.

We also act as an “adjunct” general counsel to larger energy companies, providing overflow support when the in-house team’s capacity is saturated.

  • General counsel to NASDAQ-listed corporation, responsible for all legal matters, including management of between $1 and $5 million per year of outside legal costs
  • General counsel to start-up investment advisor firm, which grew to more than $400 million of assets under management
