In-house legal support
With team members having worked in-house, we understand that the internal and commercial demands on in-house lawyers can put them under considerable pressure, with their time and expertise being pulled in many different directions.
We are here to provide in-house lawyers with legal support and advice. Our dedicated team of commercial lawyers are highly experienced in providing in-house legal teams with support, either as commercial law overflow assistance or on a project by project basis.
Experienced in-house counsel specialists
We have collaborated with in-house teams on a wide range of commercial and regulatory law projects including outsourcing agreements, complex services contracts, and regulatory advice over a number of years now.
In-house Lawyer training and support
We can also provide tailored training to in-house lawyers and their colleagues to keep them up to date and provide them with refreshers of new and ongoing commercial law and regulatory law considerations – for example, competition law training and Bribery Act 2010 refresher training.
Ad hoc in-house legal support or full project management
We can offer advice on an ad hoc basis whether it be a discrete question or a contract report. Alternatively, we are equally at home taking on entire projects to reduce the workload sitting with the in house legal team, reporting either to the in house counsel or directly to the other nominated stakeholders, and completing internal sign off / risk sheets as required.
We can either offer these services on a per matter basis or we can work on the basis of a pre-agreed monthly retainer in order to enable greater certainty over the budgeting of legal spend.
