Case study: BII Group

British International Investment, formerly CDC, invests up to £2 billion every year in green infrastructure, technology and other sectors. The organisation has been growing rapidly – and so has its workload. Obelisk helped to build a flexible, mixed-ability team that could support the expanding legal team in periods of high demand and allow them to focus on the organisation’s core role of investment support.

Paralegal Support FAQs

What is a paralegal?

A paralegal, also known as a legal assistant, is a professional who works in the legal field and provides support to lawyers and law firms. Paralegals are trained to assist with various legal tasks under the supervision of an attorney. While paralegals play a vital role in legal support, they are not authorized to practice law, provide legal advice, or represent clients independently.

Do Obelisk Support paralegals only work from home?

No! Whilst many of our paralegals work remotely, we can also provide you with in-house paralegals and freelance paralegals to support law firms who work in your offices or split their days between home and your offices.

How experienced are your paralegals?

Obelisk Support paralegals have a range of experience working with legal teams in-house and supporting busy law firms across a variety of projects. Our paralegals are self-starters and able to manage their own time effectively.

Can paralegals help me with document review?

Yes! Our clients engage our paralegals to help with: reviewing, amending and drafting documents and contracts; regulatory investigation; compliance tasks; legal research and triaging legal workflow to name a few ways they can help your organisation.

Do you have multilingual paralegals?

What legal sectors do your paralegals work in?

Is Obelisk Support a law firm?

Obelisk Support is not a law firm, nor is it attached to a law firm. It is termed an alternative legal service provider and is not regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority.

How does insurance work?

Obelisk believes that the alternative legal services that we provide should offer the same peace of mind as a law firm, and so we hold comprehensive solicitors’ professional indemnity insurance to protect our clients. All of our legal professionals who do not hold their own policies are covered by this insurance. Full details of our insurance can be provided upon request.

Do you have in-house paralegals?

Yes! Many of our assignments are with corporate legal teams looking for additional support on an ad hoc basis and this is a very good way for paralegals to learn about commerciality and how legal supports the wider organisation.

Can I contact you about one-off projects and temporary paralegal services?

Absolutely. We understand that sometimes you have an urgent need for a specific piece of legal work to be delivered and we have the flexibility to turn that around as well as to provide on-going services or connect you with a consultant for a longer-term assignment.
