Increase your capabilities with on-demand lawyer solutions able to fill any gaps in your staff or spikes in work volumes. The solutions that we bring involve a mix of legal expertise and technology, and we’ve come up with two core offerings that represent that package, and they’re what we call our Desk Extension and Special Projects.
The Desk Extension product is a product that is designed to help in-house teams with the business-as-usual day-to-day legal work that comes across their desk.
Great example would be:
- managing and negotiating day to day commercial contracts
- advising on general corporate commercial matters.
- managing contractual legal disputes
- handling ongoing maintenance of corporate records, minutes of directors and shareholders and corporate filings.
A kind of work that’s perfectly suitable is a high volume, high repeatable work, where we can gain efficiency by building processes and technology around it by offering our clients the following solutions:
- building and implementing law tech to help level up your legal operation with technology made for your team, such as document automation solutions.
- standardization of contracts and other legal documents.
- streamlining document management.
Achieve significant cost savings with our part-time in-house counsel. It is on demand, and competitively priced.
For a fixed price or monthly fee, Desk Extension clients have the ability to access the breadth of experience that a law firm has to offer, but delivered in a way that’s much more integrated with your business. It is best used by leveraging the benefits of our FLConnect subscription model to lower delivery costs.
For Special Projects, we meet with you to learn more about your project, current problems and needed outcome[s], so that we can come back to you with a designed process (which may include technology systems) suggested plan and solution[s].
