GENERAL COUNSEL RETAINER

We provide fast-growth technology companies with strategic advice and support on day-to-day matters

Legal guidance for your leadership team

 

 

We recognise the challenges that young, ambitious businesses face because we are one. Many of our early-stage clients have a non-existent or underresourced legal function that doesn’t adequately protect their business from risks as they grow.

Our General Counsel retainer provides your leadership team with a flexible resource led by lawyers with in-house experience to:

> fulfil the General Counsel role in your management team;
> enable better decision making through the right legal advice and legal process;
> protect your business against key legal and reputational risks; and
> help to manage all the legal aspects of your business.

With our GC retainer we can:

 

 

>
Understand the legal risks and blockers your business is facing and advise your management team on how to overcome these in a practical way.
>
Work with you to develop a legal strategy for your business.
>
Provide timely and confidential advice to your management team/board in times of crisis.
>
Support and manage existing Legal team members.
>
Suggest policies/processes to speed up execution and control risk.
>
Optimise your existing law firm engagements, ensuring you are getting the best advice for the right price.
>
Help you deal with the administrative aspects of board meetings and advise the board on legal and corporate governance matters.

How it works

 

 

You can guarantee legal support from our team by booking an agreed number of days for the month ahead. Each ‘day’ comprises a block of 7.5 hours which can be used flexibly over the course of the month.

So, if you book four days, you will have 30 hours of support. These hours are flexible and can be used as required throughout the month. We can also work on-site when needed.

You can adjust the number of days you book up and down from month-to-month. If you ever want additional support, we can provide this at a reduced hourly rate.
