About

My Outside General Counsel™ (MOGC: pronounced “MAHK-see") was established by Matt Donahue, an attorney of more than 34 years, in 2020 as a new way to offer small- to medium-sized businesses all the benefits of retaining an in-house attorney at a substantially lower—and fixed—cost. Matt knew MOGC would be well-received based on countless conversations he’s had with clients over the years. 

MOGC is an innovative, subscription-based legal service for small- to mid-sized businesses. Unlike traditional law firms’ opaque legal services and unpredictable, hourly billing, MOGC is completely transparent about its services and fixed monthly costs (see subscription overview). Further, because experienced business attorneys also have a wealth of business knowledge and negotiating expertise, MOGC includes business and negotiating advice, in addition to legal advice, in its tiers. MOGC provides:

  • Unlimited Access: Schedule a phone or video meeting with your lawyer anytime you need advice.
  • Predictable Pricing: Fixed monthly costs and no meter running means no anxiety around unpredictable and potentially large legal bills.
  • Legal and Business Advice: Rely on MOGC for both legal advice and strategic business guidance, as required.
  • Broad Experience: MOGC is backed by a team of experienced business lawyers with expertise in all the areas of law small businesses need so we can put the right lawyer to work on your behalf.
  • Affordable Cost: Bring a lawyer onto your team without the price tag of hiring in-house counsel.
  • Personal Attention: As part of our ongoing relationship, your dedicated MOGC attorney will truly get to know you and your business.

MOGC is new. We are not.

MOGC’s Managing Partner, Matthew C. Donahue of Donahue Law Offices, brings more than 34 years of experience in business law and litigation. Practicing in New Hampshire, Vermont, and Massachusetts, Matt is responsible for coordinating your MOGC legal services wherever they may be required. We begin by hand-selecting the attorney who best fits your specific legal or business needs, either from our firm or from our network of trusted member firms, with all of which we have personal, ongoing relationships. From the beginning, you will have a dedicated MOGC attorney who develops a deep, holistic understanding of your business, as well as your personal style and preferences. In addition, Matt will remain your overall point of contact whenever necessary. It is this personal commitment to you and your business that sets MOGC apart.

Legal services the way they were meant to be. 

The legal industry has changed, and not necessarily for the better. While some law firms focus on the billable hour, law firms that offer MOGC focus on your bottom line by offering fixed-fee monthly rates. Like a true advisor, we listen to you and take time to determine a successful resolution tailored to your individual needs.

Today, MOGC providers serve clients with the same focus on quality, integrity and affordability that over generations have become hallmarks of our firms. With both innovative fixed-fee and hourly rate programs that offer fee transparency, including MOGC, the firm is helping to set the standard for a new generation of attorneys and law firms.
