We provide a range of proactive and commercially driven
services to assist compliance officers, procurement officers and
business managers in all facets of legal business risk.
We mitigate your risk, reduce your time spend on contract
drafting and negotiations, and we equip you with the
knowledge you need to properly manage your contracts.
We provide business legal advice on the common traps to avoid in the area of
procurement, and specialise in finding ways to reduce the cost
and time involved in the contracting process.
Our goal is to support you in getting your contracts signed off with the least risk, and the least fuss. We also get
very practical with you on the important elements in ensuring that your outcomes of the contract are achieved; for example by ensuring that online legal services levels are tied to remedies, so you don’t have to suffer poor performing
arrangements without a way out.
Outsourced Legal Counsel
We act as outsourced legal counsel for many organisations,
which provides an efficient and cost effective alternative to
inhouse legal counsel.
Our clients regularly compliment our lawyers on our
commercial approach, super fast response times, high
quality of work and ability to distil complex concepts into
simple language in order that our legal advice can be more easily
shared internally with other stakeholders.
Our retainer clients are provided with a hotline phone
number and email address, in order that they have access to
our team of lawyers – to get responses fast. Our retainer
clients are also provided with unique training to assist in
developing more efficient, and lower risk, contract systems
We ask you to consider some of the hard questions now, so that you are always in a
position to act in your company’s best interests. These include:
- Is your team up to date on the laws and correct
procedures to follow regarding hiring and firing?
- Do you have the best policies in place for bullying,
harrassment and discrimination to ensure that
‘work’ is a place that your employees are happy to
attend each day?
- What systems do you currently have in place that
may be infringing workplace surveillance laws,
potentially exposing you to criminal penalties?
