GBG, the global specialist in identity data intelligence, headquartered in the UK, with over 1000 team members across 16 countries. They work with clients in 79 countries, including some of the best-known businesses around the world, ranging from US e-commerce giants to Asia’s biggest banks and European household brands.
GBG’s busy in-house legal team often requires local counsel support in different jurisdictions. They recognise that relying on traditional law firms can be an expensive option and locating and vetting local counsel is a waste of their time.
How Lexoo helped
GBG regularly turns to Lexoo to engage high-quality and cost-effective lawyers around the world on fixed fees.
GBG first used Lexoo to urgently engage an ex-BigLaw lawyer in Australia to localise its terms and conditions. More recently, GBG used Lexoo to engage senior data protection lawyers in Germany to ensure supplier contracts are GDPR compliant, and in Australia to ensure contracts are compliant with the Australian Privacy Act.
In every case, Lexoo provided GBG multiple fixed fee quotes from experienced lawyers in less than 24 hours. These lawyers have left BigLaw and now work on a low-overhead model, including as legal consultants or in boutique firms. They offer the same high-quality advice but with greater flexibility and price transparency. They’re also no longer constrained by high billable hour targets and pride themselves on being extremely commercial.
