Our In House Counsel Experience

Our lawyers have first-hand experience undertaking in-house roles, through secondments and in former permanent roles outside private practice and working closely with in-house teams to provide specialist advice and assistance.

We have been involved in:

  • internal reporting and governance;
  • precedent development;
  • process engineering;
  • internal stakeholder engagement;
  • contract negotiations;
  • training;
  • data mapping, audits, breach response and policy drafting; and
  • other aspects of the job which are characteristic of in-house legal work.

How We Can Help You

Comprehensive Legal Support 

Our commercial solicitors are supported by Myerson’s extensive expertise in other areas of law, such as employment, commercial property, and corporate law. This integrated approach ensures that you have access to all your legal needs in one place, making us a one-stop solution for comprehensive legal support. 

Supporting junior team members

We support the ongoing development and training of our lawyers and can coordinate our training and current awareness activities with the in-house legal teams we support. Our collaborative approach can help your in-house team provide junior teams with access to a potentially more extensive range of training opportunities and a wider network of collegiate support for all involved. 

Flexible Retainers

We have developed a retainer model designed to provide access to flexible external legal resources for in-house legal teams. This offers the simplicity of access to a single discounted blended hourly rate and a reserved monthly bank of hours in return for the client’s commitment to take a specified number of hours per month over a fixed minimum period.  To provide flexibility, we allow for a limited ‘roll-over’ of time unused in one month into the next, as well as the ability for you to flex the recurring monthly hours commitment from time to time and, of course, to bring arrangements to an end if your requirements change.
