Our Knowledge team provides direct knowledge support to clients in a number of different ways. These services are offered free of charge as part of the value-added service we offer the Firm’s clients:
Legal Update Service
We provide a weekly on-line update of legal developments. These updates cover the areas of domestic, EU and relevant UK law. Regulatory developments are also addressed. The updates focus on the practical implications of what’s new and may be tailored to the specific needs of particular sectors of business, or the requirements of particular clients.
Client Knowledge Centre
The Knowledge Centre is an online resource of a range of useful know-how in the form of checklists, FAQs and practice notes across a number of practice areas including corporate, banking, employment, insolvency, procurement, discovery and litigation matters. It also provides access to copies of presentations from the firm-wide seminar programme. The training section contains online presentations which will qualify for CPD and there is a video gallery with some insights from the practice leaders on particular legal issues.
We also offer clients direct access to our Professional Support Lawyer (PSL) team. This facility enables clients to telephone or email the appropriate PSL with informal queries relating to legal topics of interest.
We send members of our Knowledge Team to give seminars and legal updates to clients or to discuss the implications of particular legal developments.
Clients also have the opportunity to have informal discussions with a number of our specialist lawyers and practice leaders about (for example) specific business objectives which they may be considering, or an assessment of potential legal obstacles facing them and a discussion about possible solutions - all in a relaxed environment and without incurring legal costs.
