better ways of working, for your journey
Different clients come to us for different support at different stages in their business or project life cycle. If you are in our sector, we want to be with you all the way.
cost effective flexibility
A highly effective cost structure allows us to offer competitive rates with no compromise on quality. We can divide projects up into stages and apply the most appropriate fee structure to each stage.
outside in-house counsel
Some of our high growth clients haven’t got to the size where it makes sense to hire an in-house lawyer, but would benefit from regular support from a lawyer who deeply understands their operations. If you are challenged by lack of resources or expertise to get projects off the ground or resolve thorny issues, we can help by providing an agreed number of support days each month at a fixed cost for as long as you need, working from your offices or ours.
Some problems are best suited to a per-hour billing structure. You can be confident that you are always getting the highest calibre advice at a reasonable price.
Work can often be carried out on a fixed fee arrangement. Transparency, and no runaway costs.
We are able to be more flexible than big firms on how we charge, applying value billing principles and abort fees/success fee uplifts. We are prepared to discuss converting legal work into sweat equity where our regulatory position allows this.
On complex assignments we work with other disciplines on meaningful collaborations. If you need an experienced lawyer in your project office several days a week/month we can offer the day rates and flexibility to make it work.
