why use us
Because every business wants to be successful.To be successful a business has to be reputable, reliable and meet the expectations of all interested parties. In particular, you must: anticipate and comply with relevant law, make contracts that are assets and not liabilities, and control your costs.
Not every business can readily afford to employ an in-house advisor or to engage the services of a firm of solicitors for day-to-day matters. While we will not always negate the need to consult a firm of solicitors, the benefits of our service are:
NO EMPLOYEE/EMPLOYER RELATIONSHIP
Equivalent to employing an in-house advisor without:
- increasing employee numbers
- increasing the cost of “salaries”
- incurring the cost of recruitment and training
- or exposing the business to the potential cost/liability under employment law.
IMPROVE SERVICE AND REPUTATION
Professional and well drafted contracts, being pro-active when the law changes and sound knowledge of the service or goods being provided make your customer feel they are in safe and competent hands.
MANAGE COSTS AND LIABILITY
A way of managing the legal, administration and/or compliance expenses of your business and to make contracts that work for you. If engaging a firm of solicitors becomes unavoidable we can reduce the cost by helping you instruct the solicitor, provide timely and relevant information to the solicitor and make pragmatic decisions.
We can even agree a fixed fee for certain transactions.
A way of securing compliance with relevant legislation (for you and, in some cases, your customers).
RELEVANT ADVICE AND IMPLEMENTATION
An understanding of management expectations, who are the key customers, the business' limiting factors combined with sound commercial awareness means that advice and support is relevant to, and achievable by, your business. We will not just tell you what your options are and leave it to you. We’ll help you make a decision and then help you to implement it (or implement it for you!). We are part of your team!
PEACE OF MIND
There are many day-to-day matters that arise in relation to which you would like to consult with a legal, or other professional, but which are not, in your opinion: significant enough to warrant a visit to a firm of solicitors; or numerous enough to employ an in-house advisor. We are on the end of a telephone and together we can arrive at a solution.
