Develop innovative legal solutions to the business and other challenges facing the Navy and Marine Corps to enhance warfighting capability of the Naval Service.
The Office of the General Counsel helps the Navy and Marine Corps fulfill their missions through practical and objective legal advice and counsel, effective advocacy and creative problem-solving, drawing on sound legal analysis, corporate experience and teamwork. The legal service provided by OGC attorneys throughout the Department is timely and responsive to client needs, enabling clients to exercise the full range of discretion available under the law.
Service to the Navy and Marine Corps
Our legal advice and counsel on business and other matters is sought after and relied upon throughout the Navy and the Marine Corps. Individual OGC lawyers are fully integrated members of their client's team. Although geographically dispersed, they can draw upon the collective expertise of the entire office in serving their client. We deliver to individual clients the full range of OGC legal services required to accomplish their mission.
Sense of Community
We are a cohesive team that communicates effectively. We anticipate change and organize ourselves to assist in effecting change. We prepare our attorneys in evolving areas to provide service to the client. We embrace the benefits of technology as vital components of our work environment. We are part of a larger DON legal community and work closely with the Navy and Marine Corps judge advocates.
Agent of Change
This team is working with Navy and Marine Corps components to seize the opportunities and solve the problems that arise as the Department changes: limited resources and associated downsizing, different ways of doing business, new organizational structures, advances in information technology, and other emerging challenges. This requires us to anticipate legal services requirements and to advise on how to satisfy them.
