The traditional in-house role has evolved from being a transactional to a strategic partnership interacting with every part of the business. You need to balance managing everyday matters, with being on the front line in proactively and reactively dealing with all matters related to strategy, risk and legal.

How we can support you

We can provide as much or as little support as you need – from being at the end of the telephone to answer ad hoc queries, to resolving complex disputes on your behalf. Offering a bespoke service that meets your needs at any particular point in time and efficient and cost-effective solution to resourcing issues you might face in-house, whether temporary or permanent.

We have also created Grey Matters – a community of in-house lawyers – who now come together regularly to share knowledge, challenges and expertise in a safe and collaborative environment. Facilitating this community gives us real insight in to the matters that are keeping you up at night, as well as experience in providing business-focused and practical solutions to those matters.

Our General Counsel services

  • Dispute resolution: from litigation of complex disputes to straightforward debt recovery
  • Commercial: advising on and negotiating procurement contracts, joint ventures and distribution arrangements
  • Employment & HR: day to day advice, resolving disputes and risk management

Your bespoke client portal

Our Client Solutions & Innovation team will work with you to create your bespoke portal. You will have access to a secure, double encrypted and private portal to store your important documents in one place, with easy access and customisable permission levels for different members of your team for :

  • Secure cloud storage of all contracts
  • Contract renewal reminders and progress monitor
  • Billing dashboard and tracking spend v budget
  • Financial KPI monitoring against historic spend

You will also have the benefit of a shared space in the portal to confidentially share documents with us for the purposes of obtaining legal advice. This saves time, frees up space in your email inbox and ensures easy access to documents at any time. It also enables the sharing of personal and sensitive data in a GDPR compliant way.

Getting to know you

We would be willing to invest time as part of our discovery and mobilisation process to develop this. We would suggest holding a non-chargeable strategic planning day to bring together key stakeholders and our partners to map out how we can best serve you.
