What is outside counsel?
Outside counsel is the label referring to any law firm with which your business is working. As your department onboards outside firms supporting your legal needs, Composure enables your team to collaborate with outside counsel within the platform.
Outside counsel can be included in your team’s work management either as part of an officially onboarded law firm or on an individual basis directly through his or her email address. In other words, outside counsel do not necessarily have to be affiliated with a larger law firm your team is engaging.
This user may gain visibility into projects that your team deems appropriate. Additionally, outside counsel has visibility into billing-related information, may submit tickets directly to your legal team, and can utilize the chat feature.
