Your outsourced Legal Department

Why you should consider outsourcing your legal department

  • Small, medium and large sized companies always need  legal advice on various issues that arise in their daily business including but not limited to, HR/ employment issues, Shareholder and Board resolutions, Directors and Managers duties and liabilities, and drafting and reviewing of commercial agreements relating to their business.
  • Companies which have variety and volume of legal issues can mistakenly believe that that they will be able to reduce costs and handle their own legal matters through hiring an in-house lawyer.
  • As a law firm with extensive experience dealing with in-house counsel, we know that in-house lawyers always require additional support of a law firm as they are often not experienced or qualified to handle larger commercial transactions, corporate governance issues and litigation/arbitration matters. Therefore, companies usually end up incurring the additional expense of hiring law firms.
