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 have spent extended periods of time, working in senior positions within the legal teams of major multi-national companies.
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.
