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 understand the in-house environment and pressures. . We work collaboratively so we are seen as an extension of your legal or commercial team rather than just an outsourced function. We work alongside you on your journey of growth and success. We are on hand for unforeseen challenges.

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.
