Meet Eileen Lysaught, J.D., M.B.A.

GENERAL COUNSEL EXPERTISE WITH STRATEGIC BUSINESS SAVVY.

As founder and principal of Lysaught Law Office, Eileen Lysaught has broad experience handling both specialized and day-to-day General Counsel duties and executive management.

Following seven years of legal defense and insurance-related work, Eileen joined an international consumer goods manufacturer as General Counsel. Over the next 11 years, Eileen oversaw the corporation’s Legal, Human Resource, Quality, Compliance and Operations Departments. As the Vice-President of Operations & General Counsel, Eileen realized that many small and mid-sized companies cannot justify the cost of a full-time General Counsel. She created Lysaught Law Office to pioneer an economic General Counsel alternative. Lysaught Law Office provides the benefit of an in-house attorney immersed in your culture and decision-making process, but with outsourced savings.
