At Sainty Law we understand that it is sometimes necessary to engage the services of an in-house lawyer for a limited time. With that in mind, Sainty Law offers an innovative General Counsel Service where experienced lawyers are placed with clients for a fixed price.

Our General Counsel Service is managed by Katherine Sainty who has extensive experience as an in-house lawyer, liaising with key management executives, managing in-house teams and solving legal problems – all with a keen appreciation for the commercial imperatives of the business. Our General Counsel service provides organisations with:

Experienced lawyers

We understand that sometimes clients don’t want to employ a lawyer but they need ongoing legal services from someone with the knowledge, accessibility and continuity of a staff member.  Others may need to add to an existing legal team for a project or to cover a team member on leave.

Flexible access to a qualified lawyer on a daily, weekly, monthly or project basis.

An experienced lawyer to act as your General Counsel for a day per week, a fortnight, a month or for the life of a project.

At your office

General Counsel is based at your office but available by email and phone at other times – your Virtual General Counsel.

All your legal work, plus…

Your General Counsel handles the whole range of commercial legal needs. If your legal work needs specialist input, after consulting with you, your General Counsel can brief the matter to the best lawyer for the job (not necessarily with our firm), and continue to manage it as part of their duties.

Fixed monthly legal fees

Clients want certainty on their legal spend. Together we agree a fixed fee formula for your General Counsel services.
