Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Philadelphia, PA - Oct 26, 2016 - GenCounsel™, LLC today announced the addition of Kevin Hicks to its team. GenCounsel is an innovative legal services model providing outsourced legal and advisory services to businesses under a managed cost model.
Launched in Philadelphia late in 2009, GenCounsel is an innovative legal services model that provides outsourced legal and advisory services to businesses under a managed cost model. The model is grounded in the benefit of having experienced former general counsels join a corporate team on a dedicated part time or “fractional” basis, enabling the company to have seasoned counseling in-house, when a full time general counsel is not yet warranted and using outside counsel for every issue or matter is not efficient or cost effective.
Mostly recently at Hexis Cyber Solutions, Inc. and over the past 16 years at other General Counsel and senior attorney positions including SafeNet, Inc., Hicks has led in-house legal departments serving cyber security, data protection and other technology companies. In addition to deep experience with a wide array of licensing and subscription service business models, Hicks has led the in-house legal effort in numerous corporate transactions, including the acquisition, sale and financing of small to mid-size companies.
Steve Feder, Co-Founding Member of GenCounsel, commented, “Kevin is a perfect addition to the GenCounsel team in Philadelphia. He brings a wealth of experience working side by side with entrepreneurial management teams to drive corporate growth and assure legal compliance. With the foundation of large law firm training at the Drinker Biddle law firm and his in-house experience, Kevin is well prepared to help our clients address their legal support needs.”
John Parker, Co-Founding Member of GenCounsel, added, “Kevin’s industry knowledge and expertise in technology businesses is impressive, including a deep understanding of business models and strategy, making him a strong partner for growth-stage technology companies. In addition, Kevin has worked in several other industries, so he is not limited to technology companies, and will be able to help other early-stage and growth business clients of GenCounsel.”
GenCounsel is an innovative business services firm, bringing experienced senior in-house lawyers together with businesses under a managed cost model. GenCounsel professionals gather invaluable insights and business context through regular on-site presence and remain available 24/7 as a dedicated member of the clients’ business team.
