De Bruin Law Firm Small Business General Counsel Services

At the De Bruin Law Firm, we believe every small business should have a business advisor and legal team. However, in today’s competitive market we understand the burden an in-house counsel attorney let alone a team would be on a businesses bottom line. For this reason, we use our considerable business experience to provide our clients with proactive legal risk management, helping avoid problems before they arise.

Our team of legal professionals bring with them a business background designed to help our client’s grow their businesses, refine their processes, and create a solid foundation allowing for additional growth. We provide solutions to internal employee matters, external business negotiations, contract review, issue spotting, and legal liability resolutions. Additionally, if a situation arises and a specialized legal solution is needed we will provide the coordination and oversight thus helping to ensure billable hours are controlled and expectations are met.

General Counsel On Retainer

Unlike our Business Development service, our General Business Counsel service does not require an annual agreement or monthly payment. Instead, you pay only when we are needed, and every project will come with a quote for you to review before we begin.

Our Business General Counsel Service is designed specifically to help growing companies:

  • Expedite time on closing important business deals
  • Protect intellectual property
  • Identify and solve business issues
  • Avoid the financial burden of full-time legal staff

When we participate as corporate counsel in meetings about a new business development deal or product plan, you get the benefit of proactive legal advice without worrying about the clock ticking in the background.

  • This is the company I decided to use in purchasing my house with Veterans United Home Loans. Although I didn't deal with them directly for 95% of the process, the 5% I did have the opportunity to interact with them was very professional. We came in to the office, signed our documents and got out. 10/10 would recommend.

  • Aaron DeBruin was my husbands defense attorney recently regarding a high profile case in Walhalla, SC. Aaron fought really hard to prove my husbands innocence. If anyone knows anything about the small town of Walhalla, it’s a small town where it’s a battle to prove your innocence especially if you’re of color. Aaron took on a high profile and difficult case. He was very patient and kept me up to date with everything. Despite of the deniles of the bond hearings, Aaron continued to fight. My husbands case wound up going to trail after 10 months of incarceration in Walhalla county. Aaron has plenty of sleepless nights and early morning preparation during trial. I will never forget how hard Aaron fought in the courtroom! Aaron won his first case in Seneca SC! My husband was found not guilty on all charges once Aaron convinced jury of false allegations. I could go on and on but I’m here to tell you if you’re in the upstate of Greenville and need a defense attorney to fight for your innocence give this guy a call! You won’t regret it! I sure don’t! Not only was my husbands lawyer I feel like we both have gained a dear friend for life! Thank you Aaron!
