Flexible & cost-effective,
high quality legal services.

The Stall Legal team provides high quality, business-centric legal services by experienced lawyers and business partners on a cost-effective basis. Members of our team have extensive experience as in-house counsel in 5 primary business areas – general corporate, employment and employee benefits, health care and health insurance, corporate governance, and mergers and acquisitions.

Stall Legal provides highly experienced in-house counsel to handle your company’s legal needs at a fraction of the cost of either hiring full time in-house counsel or relying exclusively on law firms. In addition to cost savings, we offer a unique fractional general counsel program, where we have additional opportunities to develop an in-depth understanding of your business and provide you dedicated business-centric legal advice that allows you to spend more time addressing business priorities and less time handling legal matters. Through this program, a Stall Legal team member will handle your legal matters, collaborate with your management team, and, when appropriate, work with existing counsel to minimize your company’s legal spend.

Companies Without In-house Legal Counsel

Every company faces legal and compliance questions and issues, and most often senior management is left trying to either attempt to address the legal issue on their own or contact outside counsel and risk ending up with a large legal bill. That is why CEO’s rely, more than ever, on having in-house counsel or on establishing a relationship with an experienced outside counsel for insightful, customized business advice. Whether you desire to engage Stall Legal on an as needed or a fractional general counsel basis, Stall Legal helps to effectively address legal and compliance issues, helps manage risk, allows management to take full advantage of business opportunities, while enabling your company to reach its overall goals.

“Mark Stall was my General Counsel for 4 years at xpedx, an $8 Billion North American distribution company. He is very smart, detail oriented, and customer focused (fast turnaround on requests). He played a critical role on our leadership team, as we went through several years of acquisitions and strong growth, followed by right-sizing through the 2008-2009 recession. He works well with others and is a complete team player. I highly recommend Mark Stall as an individual, a GC, and a coach and counselor.”

Tom KadienFmr. President, xpedx (2006-10) and EVP, International Paper Company Current CEO of UMRF Ventures
