in house legal


Working in house, the internal and commercial demands on your time can place you under considerable pressure.

Managing your organisation's legal issues, governance, procurement and suppliers as well as supporting directors, delivering contracts to commercial deadlines, managing change and even just managing your team can leave you needing access to external support and a safe pair of hands from time‐to‐time.

Here's where our team of specialist lawyers can help. We have been working with in house lawyers for years. We work with you to take up the strain or covering when you are busy or on leave, as an appointed advisor or as specialist consultants. We understand your challenges and so deliver pragmatic, timely and commercial advice at competitive costs in a format to suit you. Our lawyers who have a genuine interest in your world will develop an ongoing successful relationship with you.

We offer a range of products specifically designed for in house lawyers, giving in house lawyers the backing of a full service law firm, with the entire infrastructure, resources and specialists that you may need.

latest in house lawyers videos

Our in house lawyers forums hosted at offices across the UK, cover areas of law that are most likely to affect you as an in house lawyer. Quite a bit has changed since our March in house lawyers forums - not just the Prime Minister and the country’s approach to Europe, but also a fair amount that affects day to day legal practice.

We caught up with our experts following the in house lawyers sessions in September – watch the video highlights to hear how Brexit affects the different areas of law that are governed by European regulation, including technology law, commercial law, data protection, intellectual property rights and employment law.

Not all that’s new is Brexit-related – our experts also cover new regulations and new case law over the last 6-12 months, including how recent decisions affect offers to settle disputes.

what we do...

  • In house lawyer workshops – every six months we run update sessions in the areas of law that most in house lawyers need to deal with. Our comprehensive programme of in house lawyer training sessions, workshops and updates provides any in house lawyers an opportunity to keep up to date with legal developments but also a chance to compare experiences with your peers. We provide examples of latest case law and legislative updates and case studies demonstrating how we work with our clients. 

  • Secondments and temporary cover – we can offer a range of support at different levels of qualification.  We see this as crucial to our development as a firm and believe that it gives our lawyers a real perspective of the in house role. 

  • In house lawyer checker product – this product is designed to help where you are looking for a second opinion on a matter, or where you are unsure whether further advice is needed. With this checker product, our solicitors are available as if you were a colleague, to bounce something past or to check on a point that a specialist in the relevant area should be able to answer quickly.

  • Other services – ask us about our other services – such as supervision (where you don’t have budget to outsource), library support (e.g. for research) or use of our offices.
