Are legal consulting firms the right option for your business?

Running a business comes with inherent risks and challenges. Whether you’re launching a business or planning an expansion, legal hurdles could arise, such as negotiating contracts, ensuring intellectual property rights are protected, meeting regulatory compliance, and handling employment disputes. Without assistance from the right consultants, you could find yourself on a long and turbulent legal journey.

This is why collaborating with a legal consultancy firm can be a wise choice. Besides being a more affordable option than hiring your own permanent legal team, working with a consultancy firm provides a means of avoiding costly legal battles, preventing or managing reputational damage, and potentially, preventing bankruptcy.

Engaging legal consultants can also help your business stay abreast of legislative changes in your industry. A consultancy firm can be relied upon for up-to-date advice on current legal obligations, and can help ensure businesses are not left exposed.


How a legal consulting firm can make a difference to your business

Working with a consulting firm for your legal requirements can be a wise strategic decision. Here’s why.

Knowledge of laws

Every business is governed by laws that include employment laws, competition laws and more. Without a legal background, understanding the intricacies of these laws can be challenging and time-consuming. A legal consultant will have the knowledge you need to conduct lawful business without adverse consequences, and save you time trying to work it out yourself.

Strategy planning

Your legal strategy needs to be in line with regional, national and international laws. If you’re unaware of the various laws you’re required to abide by, you could inadvertently engage in illegal practices. A consultancy firm can ensure your strategy is legally sound and hence, prevent unlawful practices.

Unpredictable scenarios

Even if you have a sound legal business strategy, unforeseen changes, like updates to laws and regulations, could compromise your business. A legal consultant can help you deal with these situations efficiently and take away any unnecessary burden.

Legal advice

If you encounter a legal problem, a legal consultant can help you identify solutions that prevent the need for litigation or a lawsuit. They can help you take the necessary precautionary steps and help you navigate the law to benefit your business, without taking any illegal turns.

Saves time and money

Hiring a full-time business lawyer can be costly, whereas a consulting firm can work for you only when required, for instance on a project-by-project basis, making it a more affordable option.

Knowhow of legal frameworks

Establishing legal frameworks for compliance is a good way to define legal requirements, establish rules, and stay compliant with other legal specifications. Consultants can help assist you with creating and establishing an internal legal framework to achieve this.

We are so grateful to the lawyer for her assistance in drafting sub contractor contracts tailored to our business. The process was easy from start to finish and the lawyer was informative and clear explaining all aspects of the contracts.

Myers Electrical Pty Ltd

Engaging, entertaining, thought provoking……

In the current climate and the crazy litigious society we live in, it is good to know that NECA have expanded the services offered to members with the lawyer and her team.

A “must attend” event for NECA members and a gentle hint for members to let non-members know what they are missing out on by not being a member….

Thanks to all who made the event possible and thanks to the lawyer for the laid back approach to the minefield of employee / employer relationships.
