Our Service Packages for Startups, Small And Medium Sized Businesses

This is a program designed to provide in-house counsel services to Startups and SMEs that require regular legal services for the day to day running of their businesses but cannot afford to have or maintain a full time legal department. The aim of the program is to provide an affordable external legal department for interested Clients. We discuss with any Client interested in this program and assign a member of our team (the Principal Contact) who is best suited in terms of knowledge and experience with respect to the Client’s line of business to work with the Client. Another member of our team (the Secondary Contact) will also be assigned to work with the Principal Contact. The Contacts provide legal services to the client through emails and over the telephone and the Contacts will generally not be physically present at the Client’s place of business except when necessary. The scope of services covered by this program is as follows:

1) Drafting, reviewing and negotiation of commercial agreements that arise in the ordinary course of business; 2) Providing legal opinions on issues arising in the ordinary course of business; 3) Advising Clients on the laws applicable to their businesses; 4) Drafting of contentious letters that may lead to legal action; 5) Liaising with regulatory bodies and authorities on behalf of Clients; and 6) Attending meetings with and on behalf of Clients.
