How does it work?

First you get to select which of the two Legal Director Scheme packages will best suit and support your business:

  • LDS35- for a payment of £595.00 + VAT a month, this package will provide you with 35 hours a year to use as explained below; or
  • LDS70- for a payment of £995.00 + VAT a month, this package will provide you with 70 hours a year to use as explained below. Subscribing to the LDS70 means a saving of £2300.00(+VAT) a year and you get double the hours!

Above all that, as you are a member of the Legal Director Scheme, any time you may need over and above your allocated hours will be provided to you at a 10% discounted hourly rate.

What can you spend the legal director scheme hours on?

You can use the hours on:

  • Telephone calls;
  • Meetings attendance at our offices (and travel if not at our offices);
  • Written correspondence (emails, letters, etc.);
  • Documents perusal and analysis;
  • Documents drafting; and
  • Legal advice & support.

You can use these hours to rely on us to provide you with expert advice and peace of mind when dealing with issues such as:

  • Your Corporate Structure, such as Shareholders Agreement, Joint Venture and Partnerships;
  • Your people, including your employees’ contracts, staff handbook, on-going
  • HR support as well as any employment disputes that may arise;
  • Your legal relationships with third parties such as freelancers, customers & terms of business, suppliers, agents, etc.; and
  • Intellectual Property Rights and Brand Protection including, trademarks, assignment of rights; NDAs, confidentiality protection.

As you can see, you can use the Legal Director Scheme on all areas of law we specialise in, excluding court cases, other contentious proceedings or other types of alternative dispute resolution procedure such as mediation or arbitration.

Basically, for the fixed monthly fee you get your own Acumen Legal Director who is a solicitor specialising in Business Law operating as your in-house business lawyer to provide you with ad-hoc “on demand” legal assistance for up to 35 hours a year under the LDS35 (see above) and 70 hours a year under the LDS70 (see above).

Keep your professional image

Having a Legal Director on board means that all your legal transactions, contracts and deal negotiations are handled by experts. This will complement your professional image in the eyes of your customers, suppliers, business contacts and your competitors.

Explore business opportunities

An expert can use the law to your advantage by identifying business prospects for you that would not have been apparent otherwise. Think of all the business opportunities that may be staring in the face of the non-expert and are missed out.
