General Counsel

We provide flexible, innovative and commercial solutions to businesses and in-house legal teams. We can act as your sole counsel or work alongside your current legal or commercial function.

Our team consists of senior experienced lawyers who have significant in-house experience. They have worked in many different sectors and industries and understand the importance of providing tailored commercial advice and establishing collegiate and innovative ways to work together. In short, our General Counsel team adds value to your executive resource.

We understand legal teams are under increasing pressure to deliver more for less and this needs to be achieved within budgets and not compromising service quality. We understand in house lawyers have many competing priorities.

As a client you will benefit from knowledgeable lawyers who know how to work in-house. We can act quickly to respond to and adapt to your needs. We work collaboratively so we are seen as an extension of your legal or commercial team rather than just an outsourced function.

Our team has commerciality as a given. We use the significant experience within our team to help you achieve your goals efficiently, productively and cost-effectively. We are flexible and solutions focussed; we will work from your premises if required; we will also work on retainers if it is more cost effective.

We offer:

  • Support (for a set number of days, weeks or months) where extra resource, capacity or expertise is required. We can provide this support within a 24-hour timeframe.
  • Sole/General Counsel Retainer - as a client you benefit from having a lead Relationship Partner and the retainer also gives you access to all the Bexley Beaumont partners and their specialist areas of expertise within a fixed monthly cost.
  • Support for one-off projects or help with project management.
  • Support on GDPR and privacy policies, employment contracts and issues, HR queries, commercial contracts, M&A transactions, customer and supplier contracts and disputes, general litigation and disputes, commercial property acquisitions and disposals, corporate restructuring and insolvency and business crime and regulatory support.
