Gonzalo Law counsel serves as a fractional chief legal officer (CLO) for companies and nonprofits. This allows your company to have outsourced general counsel who regularly reviews internal company operations without the overhead of paying a full-time general counsel.

Our service is designed for companies and nonprofits that are proactive about their corporate legal transactions. It allows them to protect their organization while they grow and to anticipate problems before they occur. This can greatly reduce the chance of future litigation. Gonzalo Law offers fractional Chief Legal Officer services as a monthly package to protect and represent your business, yet companies can cancel at any time.
