Legal Health Assessment

The MOGC Legal Health Assessment

State and federal rules, regulations and guidelines change often and change quickly, and it’s hard to stay on top of current legislative and compliance requirements – especially when you’re focused on running your business. 

My Outside General Counsel™ (MOGC: pronounced MAHK-see) created the Legal Health Assessment to identify potential legal issues lurking within your business that:

a) you know you need to address but haven’t, or
b) you didn’t even know were there! 

Similar to a medical  HMO, that monitors your physical health before major problems strike, our goal is to help you recognize legal problems early and take the appropriate action to avoid putting yourself or your business at risk. 

The Legal Health Assessment will:

      • Ensure your business structure and founder’s agreements are air tight
      • Include a corporate compliance check to make sure Annual Reports and Corporate Minutes are up to date
      •  Review employment procedures to ensure compliance with all applicable regulations
      • Review contracts, agreements, and leases

How it Works

  1. You send us your business formation documents and up to 20 of your current policies, procedures, contracts, agreements, leases, handbooks, using our secure online portal.
  2. An experienced MOGC business attorney will conduct an initial review of each document to determine if there are any legal issues that need to be addressed.
  3. Your MOGC attorney will provide you with a comprehensive written assessment of your legal health together with specific, actionable feedback.
  4. Your MOGC attorney will schedule an in-person, phone, or online meeting to review your Legal Health Assessment Report and discuss which items should be prioritized to put your business on secure legal footing.

What’s Next?

After you have received your Legal Health Assessment Report outlining any potential issues uncovered in the documents we reviewed, we will help you to devise a strategy to prioritize issues that may need to be addressed and identify the most beneficial and economical way to proceed. For example, our meeting might uncover a need to register a trademark for your company’s logo, revise employment contracts, and add a privacy policy to your company website. 

We’ll help you prioritize and budget for what’s most critical — if you’re not ready to hire employees immediately and your website won’t go live for a month,  it makes more sense to address the trademark registration first, then your privacy policy, and finally the employment contracts.

Options to move forward include using our traditional law firm approach where you pay an hourly fee for legal services, or joining MOGC, our unique subscription-based legal service with fixed monthly pricing. Once you have completed a Legal Health Assessment with us, you are eligible to subscribe to MOGC
