Our Virtual 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.
We understand that some clients don’t have the resources to employ an in-house lawyer, yet 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
Sainty Law will provide an experienced lawyer to be your general counsel for a day per week, a fortnight, a month, for the life of a project or to cover leave – whatever best suits your needs. The service delivers the benefits of a staff member without the head count.
At your office
Your Virtual General Counsel can be based at your office, or work remotely.
All your legal work, plus…
Your Virtual General Counsel handles the whole range of commercial legal needs. If your legal work needs specialist input, after consulting with you, your virtual 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 Virtual General Counsel services.
