Pacific Apex Is Your General Counsel

Due to the large range of business law services necessary for business operation, Pacific Apex often provides general business counsel services for businesses that are too small to have in-house counsel. Many startups, smaller businesses, and other clients retain us to act as their “general counsel,” “outside counsel” or “outsourced in-house counsel.”


This arrangement has three principal benefits:

  • We develop an in-depth familiarity with our client’s business, culture and legal needs;

  • We maintain a long-term relationship, which facilitates efficiency of service; and

  • We become an integral part of our client’s management team. 

Pacific Apex supports micro and small business ownership, as well as sustainable and responsible business growth. We believe in entrepreneurs, forward-thinking business professionals, and other creatives. It would be our pleasure to assist you with your legal business needs, so please contact us.
