Obtaining the best possible legal support can be a constant challenge for in-house lawyers, directors and company secretaries, and making the right decision on whether to use internal lawyers or buy-in legal services is of crucial importance in securing the right legal services for an organisation.

Managing External Legal Resources will help you to better understand your organisation’s commercial objectives and decide on the best way forward. It shows how to establish cohesive legal services using the most effective combination of internal and external lawyers.

Coverage includes:

  • Step-by step guidance on each stage of the process – from allocation of work, through sourcing, procurement and panel reviews, to the management of the relationship.
  • Best practice recommendations, documentation and case studies.
  • Techniques and exercises to help you think though the issues involved.
  • Forms and precedents to help you decide what to outsource and what to keep in-house.
