We appreciate that most in-house legal teams have a high workload at the best of times, and they are often required to balance high demands from their internal client, with a set budget for external advice.
Our Commercial Contracts Partners, David Miller and Claire Tonks have spent extended periods of time, working in senior positions within the legal teams of major multi-national companies (Reed Elsevier and Office Depot respectively).
They have first-hand experience of the types of pressures that in-house legal teams experience and as a result of this experience, as well as many years of working with in-house counsel from a wide variety of businesses, are able to provide the following services on a highly cost-effective basis:
- Bespoke contract projects – particularly drafting precedent and standard documents which it is hard for the in-house team to find time to do given the day to day demands of the job.
- “Overspill” work – covering routine commercial contract drafting, advice and negotiation at times of particularly high workloads.
- Secondments – short term cover of either senior or junior staff to ease the pressures of major projects, holiday or family leave, or illness, within the team.
