GLS transformed our templates from long, technical, jargon-filled documents to modern, short, accessible ones in plain language. The templates are now quicker and easier to prepare, negotiate and manage and harder to get wrong, with savings in time all round.
GLS assisted us with drafting a complex agreements. They did an excellent job helping us decide the required contracts and also guided us through the entire processes. My experience was painless and my expectations were certainly surpassed. I have since referred several clients to them and will continue to do so.
GLS provides robust, efficient and scalable tools and templates that enable legal functions within any organization to improve efficiency and reduce costs without sacrificing on quality.
GLS has worked in close partnership with BIC over the past 2 years and within this short span of time have demonstrated their commitment to providing exceptional consumer focused legal services to BIC. GLS listens to your goals with undivided attention and helps you to achieve the most sensible outcome within the limited budget. I recommend GLS highly.
The suite of template documents that are available, and the team’s knowledge and flexibility to tailor it for our needs, has allowed us to find a very cost-efficient high-quality legal documentation solution. I would highly recommend GLS Law to not just start-ups, but also to any firms who are looking to reduce their legal costs (who isn’t, right?) without compromising but even improving standards.
GLS simplified our legal contract requirements with a great depth of understanding of our business, allowing us to be more agile and efficient in contract negotiations. The team at GLS is fast, inquisitive, extremely thorough and pricing was very competitive. This was conducted with a no-nonsense plain English approach. I highly recommend GLS for their innovative legal solutions and services.
If you need additional legal manpower - you typically have very limited choices that are unacceptably expensive and slow.
You could go to your expensive relationship law firm and ask for a secondee. You will likely get a "B" grade lawyer - it would need to be for a considerable duration, it will be very expensive ... and when you try to tap into the "learnings" they acquired whilst with you - out come the law firm hourly rates.
You could also go to one of the recognized legal temp agencies. They will likely need a minimum of a 3 week assignment and they will charge you salary + 30%. They are also slow to mobilise.
Both of those options are slow to mobilise, expensive, only really own work for longer duration and dont allow you to benefit from the knowledge you transfer to that lawyer.
You can use GLS Legal Manpower - great lawyers, a smaller cost plus model, available for assignments as little as 4 hours - and you can access them in as little as 3 minutes.
And all done online.
When accessing legal talent you need to know that "good lawyers cost what they cost" regardless of whether you are a law firm or GLS. The most competitive a law firm can be when they offer you a secondee is to charge you the fully loaded cost of the secondee - that is salary plus centrally allocated fixed costs. GLS does not have these same costs - so we will always be far cheaper.
As for traditional LOD type providers - well their model is salary + 30%. GLS does not have to charge you the 30% to make our offer work as Manpower is one of 800+ solutions we offer. So, you can get good lawyers from a range of sources but few will be as consistently competitive as those provided by GLS.
1) they cost less DURING and AFTER the assignment - and there are no expensive law firm hourly rates post assignment
2) you can leverage the experience they acquired with you going forward as they remain cost effective to access
3) we offer a range of lawyers - most of whom have extensive in-house experience - not inflexible private practice lawyers
4) our lawyers are backed up by the in-house tools/resources of the GLS Group making them far more productive whilst working for you
5) our lawyers are available on short notice and for micro assignments - we do not need month/s long assignments
6) our lawyers do not come with the expectations that you need to use our services going forward - whereas this is precisely what a law firm expects of you
