What to look for in a legal services partner
Providing a legal advisory service for your members for your members is now an essential part of any membership offering and is is an effective way of creating added value for your members.
Our flexible range of Employment Law, HR and Health & Safety services will allow you to provide your members with consistent and professional legal support, protect them from litigation, and ultimately save them time and money. In turn, this will:
- Add genuine value to your current membership offering
- Attract new members and retain existing members
- Generate revenue to fund further member services and additional benefits
"Our services can help your members reduce their costs, operate safely and remain legally compliant. They can also help your association grow its membership and create additional incomes streams."
Senior Partnerships Manager
"Think of us as a dedicated extension of your team that you can call upon at any time. Our unique combination of expert advice, unlimited support and fixed fees, all backed up by our independent Legal Expenses Insurance, gives you certainty of cost, peace of mind and more time to focus on what’s important.."
Head of Team, Partnerships
When did you last review your existing service?
If you already offer advice services to your members via another provider, it’s good governance to regularly review your existing provision to ensure that you’re offering value for money and a service that genuinely benefits your members. Our unrivalled expertise and flexible approach to partnerships will help you to seamlessly deliver what your members really want.
