General Counsel, P.C.
Merritt Green is a Problem Solver and Advocate. Working with and helping individuals, businesses and non-profit organizations is my passion. I enjoy strategizing with entrepreneurs and seeing their excitement about building their business. I love providing the legal team to help protect and grow the business of our clients.
General Counsel, P.C. was founded by Merritt Green in 2004. General Counsel, P.C.’s attorneys do not simply want to provide you legal services – any attorney can provide legal services. Rather, we want to be “your legal partner and trusted advisor.” We want to develop a long-term relationship in which our attorneys become an integral component of your success. Since its foundation in 2004, General Counsel, P.C. has grown through building long-term relationships with satisfied clients. The “concept” beyond General Counsel, P.C. is simple. Most large corporations will have “in-house” lawyers who are employees of the corporation. These lawyers are familiar with the corporation’s business and, as such, can customize their legal counsel to the organization’s business goals. At General Counsel, P.C., our goal is to fulfill a similar role for smaller businesses that do not have the resources (or do not want to incur the cost) to have “in-house” legal counsel. We work to understand our clients’ business methods and objectives, which allows our attorneys to provide better and more cost-effective representation. For our corporate and non-profit clients, we provide full service legal representation with a dedicated team of attorneys. Each client has one of our attorneys dedicated as their outside general counsel. That attorney not only is responsible to oversee and coordinate the client’s legal representation, but also the attorney is responsible for learning about the client’s business and consistently striving to better serve and assist with the client’s success.
