Bexley Beaumont's General Counsel Service

The working practices and prospects for businesses in almost every industry sector continue to evolve at pace.

Trying to balance changes in legislation and regulation with both external commercial threats and internal challenges can be an immensely difficult task for companies of any size.

They need to deal with existing issues in a dynamic, cost-effective fashion as well as identifying and addressing emerging themes before they actually present a problem.

That is precisely why a growing number of SMEs and much larger companies have chosen to take advantage of the General Counsel service offered by Bexley Beaumont.

Who we are

Bexley Beaumont is a new breed of boutique law firm which has won a string of prestigious national awards for its ability to provide flexible, innovative and commercial solutions directly to business owners or their in-house legal teams.

The General Counsel service is delivered by an extremely capable group of lawyers, including Nikki Ferguson, Jason Curtis, Hugh Goulbourne and Elizabeth Selby.

In addition to many years working for some of the country's leading corporate law firms, they have amassed decades of experience in-house with leading national and multi-national brands in the manufacturing, retail, food and drink production, leisure and hospitality, logistics and energy sectors.

The team works across the breadth of business output, supporting Operations, Marketing and HR departments, reporting to board level directors and liaising with senior staff across different sites and countries.
