Low Cost Legal Advice and Assistance

If you require assistance as a business you do not necessarily need to use a law firm. Instead you can employ the services of an in house lawyer to provide you with advice and assistance directly.

The cost savings can be phenomenal, provided you are willing to accept the increased risk from using an interim lawyer on an in house basis.

A General In House Counsel (ie a lawyer who is able to manage a wide range of business law matters) will assist you in identifying what can be done internally at a low cost and also advising you to seek external specialist assistance when necessary.

Ongoing advice can be provided for anything a business may require legal expertise for.

  • Buying a business
  • Commercial contract reviews
  • Company structure
  • Court preparation work
  • Data Protection and GDPR work
  • Debt recovery work and enforcement
  • Defending a County Court or High Court claim
  • Employment law advice
  • General commercial legal advice
  • Legal administration work
  • Legal advice available on an ongoing basis
  • Selling a business
  • Setting up a business
  • Stock market flotation
  • Supplier, IT or employment contracts
  • Trademark and copyright disputes

What is the potential cost saving of using an Interim Lawyer?

The average hourly rate of a corporate commercial partner or solicitor in a solicitors’ firm is about £275-£325 per hour.

The average cost if an interim lawyer working as a consultant for your business is around £50-60 per hour.

What Types of Work can Interim Lawyers assist with?

Pretty much anything where the consultant is providing your business with in house legal advice. We can provide you with profiles for In House Counsel (lawyers who cover a wide range of business law) or specialist lawyers for specific tasks.

Our consultants have worked on Commercial Litigation (High Court and County Court), Employment Law – contentious (court cases) and non-contentious (drafting contracts), Commercial Contracts of all shapes and sizes, Mergers & Acquisitions, Corporate Finance, Corporate structure advice, Intellectual Property work, GDPR & Data Protection and Property Litigation. We have over 1,000 lawyers available to assist so we can usually put you in touch with a suitable consultant.

What is the difference between using an Interim Lawyer and employing the services of an external law firm?

The main difference is that you cannot sue an interim lawyer if he or she gives you negligent advice. This is because they are providing your business with advice on an in house basis. There are also some areas of law and types of cases that require external firms of solicitors to act on your behalf, or it would be better to do so. Having your own lawyer(s) means that they can advise you as to when an external firm needs to be instructed.
