Do you understand how solicitors firms work and how The Legal Director is different?
Solicitors firms are set up to provide businesses with specialist legal advice delivered by solicitors who are expert in particular areas of practice. They are invariably good at what they do, i.e. providing advice on one area of the law, but they can be expensive and will use more than one lawyer if you need legal advice across a range of legal issues. You should therefore only use them when the time is right and in a way that enables you to manage their fees.
The Legal Director is different because we use one lawyer to oversee all of your legal affairs - we are specialist in-house lawyers giving you the advice you need from one affordable source. We will bring our experience of working as in-house lawyers for blue chip companies to your business.
It’s time to start managing your legal affairs
We have seen how businesses tend to operate when it comes to their legal affairs: They often try and handle legal issues themselves or avoid legal issues altogether in an attempt to save costs until things get to the point where they consider they have "no choice" but to pick up the phone to a firm of solicitors. This is not always the best way to handle your legal affairs.
All businesses have legal issues and yours is no exception
In fact, your legal affairs are your business. They cover all of your key relationships - with your clients, your suppliers, your employees, your joint venture partners, your shareholders, your regulators and other third parties. If you are not looking after these relationships you are not looking after your business and eventually it will suffer.
We can show you what you need to do
Your legal affairs need to be controlled in two phases:
Phase 1 - Understand your legal affairs and organise them.
Phase 2 - Take action to resolve your legal issues and use the appropriate legal resource for this.
The Legal Director offers the best solution for Phase 1, which involves assessing your legal affairs across the board - you will need an in-house lawyer to do this.
Phase 2 may involve dealing with your legal issues internally, which we can do for you, or using a specialist solicitor, which we can appoint and manage for you.
With a clear focus on your business goals, we protect your business and prepare it for success.
