Our Services for

In-House Teams

At Obelisk Support, we believe that flexible working can work for everyone. We know that legal work has peaks and troughs, and that in-house legal teams are often overloaded, so we’ve built a network of legal experts that can act as an extension of your in-house teams within a matter of days – or even hours.

Our services for in-house teams include:

One-Off Projects

Our consultants can provide advice or drafting across a range of commercial areas, such as GDPR and related policies, commercial contracts, customer/supplier litigation, employment law queries, IP protection and property matters.

Cover for Holiday, Parental or Sick Leave

If you’re temporarily short-staffed, we can deliver work through our virtual team to ensure you’re covered. We can also arrange cover on-site from one of our expert lawyers.

Major Transactions Support

When you need extra expertise on a deal, our consultants can be an extension to your team.

Virtual Legal Team

Access to a virtual legal team – when your business is growing, or going through change, we can put together a team with the legal skills you need, available for an agreed number of hours each month.

Document Automation

Our consultants can draft and review your contracts, prepare associated questionnaires and work with your vendor’s technical team to get automated documents up and running across your business.

Multilingual Projects

We have lawyers who can work in 27 languages, covering you for document review, translation, proof-reading and litigation support.

Got a job in mind?

Only lawyers who have experience from both a top law firm and working in-house are eligible to join our community, meaning your services are delivered by people with the commercial savvy to deliver quality work at pace.

Case Study

Project: Document review for a major bank

Background

A multinational bank needed to report on certain transactional parameters which required a review of circa 1,500 agreements within a tight timeframe.The client’s in-house team had no capacity to carry out and manage the review and there was no process in place to achieve consistent reporting and quality control. In addition, the client’s existing system lacked the capability to capture all the relevant fields and information required by the regulator.

Solution

Obelisk Support built a project team comprising one full-time project manager, two part-time lawyers and three full-time lawyers who carried out the review and worked with the client’s technology team to guide them in creating new reporting fields to accommodate new regulatory requirements. The team also compiled a knowledge base incorporating a policy playbook with escalation points, frequent Q&As, and a training manual to be used for training of the client’s support division. Our dedicated project manager designed and oversaw the entire delivery process. Our quality control processes resulted in us delivering 1,950 hours of work with 99.4% review accuracy.

All of this is made possible through our flexible business model, providing legal work that works for you
