Legal advisors are lawyers hired by law firms to assist them in a particular case or legal matter. They are often experts in a particular area of law, such as real estate, business, or healthcare. This qualifies them as advisors to companies that may not have much experience in a particular type of law. Legal advisors are responsible for advising clients on complex legal issues, clarifying the case and making suggestions for further action. Legal counsel usually advise only in private and not in the courtroom.
