The needs of businesses aren’t always predictable and can cause the workload of the legal team to fluctuate. This inevitably leads to backlogs and delays at busy times and can make it hard to find time to progress more strategic projects.
Increasing headcount is an expensive and inflexible way to scale up your capacity to address this issue and can be a difficult topic to discuss with your CFO. That’s why, at Lexoo, we’re helping legal teams by introducing them to external lawyers who they can work with to manage overflow and recurring specialist work on discounted fixed or hourly rates.
Our clients can form long-standing relationships with these trusted advisors as they come to understand more about the team and their commercial drivers, becoming a flexible extension of the in-house team.
Examples of ongoing external solutions we regularly assist in-house teams with:
- Regular commercial contract review & negotiation
(software agreements, MSAs, NDAs etc)
- Amending third-party agreements under GDPR
- Employment contracts
- IP Portfolio management
