We serve as an Outsourced General Counsel for a diverse range of clients across various industries. For effective service delivery, we adopt a collaborative approach, closely working with executive and management teams to develop solutions tailored to meet specific needs. Our standard model incorporates a monthly retainer, which allows you to budget and plan for legal spend, while avoiding the overhead cost of a full-time in-house counsel.
Services covered under our Outsourced General Counsel model include:
We support organisations in identifying, evaluating and mitigating risks associated with third party business relationships such as outsourcing, supply arrangements, joint ventures, distributions, licensing and royalty agreements, among others. Our services extend to contract advisory and third party risk advisory, with the objective of helping organisations enhance effectiveness and efficiency of their contract compliance monitoring, processes and controls. This, in turn, leads to improved business performance.

Financial institutions have traditionally implemented anti-money laundering (AML) and economic sanctions processes, yet a gap often exists in achieving integrated, risk-based, and cost-effective AML/sanctions programs sought by boards and senior management. Our team of professionals conducts thorough vulnerability assessments, compliance program evaluations, and gap analyses to aid clients in mitigating money laundering and sanctions exposure. We focus on implementing operational solutions and enhancing overall risk management. Our specialization lies in assisting financial institutions to craft AML/sanctions programs that are not only effective but also efficient and sustainable. Through our tailored approach, we empower organizations to meet evolving compliance standards and regulatory expectations, fostering a robust defense against financial crimes and bribery.

Stakeholders seek to comprehend the impact of sustainability on an organization’s long-term value creation and its strategies for risk management. Our role is to assist you in constructing credible reports that effectively narrate your sustainability story. By collaborating with us, you can engage your stakeholders and present a coherent narrative across the market. We understand the importance of aligning with ESG principles and guide you in articulating your commitment to sustainable practices, demonstrating the positive impact on both your organization and the broader global community.
