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. Our general counsel retainer provides your leadership team with the expertise to manage all legal aspects of your business. 

Many of our clients have a non-existent or under-resourced legal function that doesn’t adequately protect their business from risks as they grow. We take the lead to develop a legal strategy covering all areas of the business.

Typical matters include:

 

 

>
 Developing and implementing contract management processes
> Carrying out data protection audits and implementing actions
> IP auditing to identify, protect and commercialise assets
> Company secretarial support
Full legal support and due diligence for funding rounds and exit plans

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.
