Remote or On-site?

Virtual Law’s In-House Legal and Locum Lawyers Services are practical, flexible and economical resourcing solutions for businesses and law firms who need to expand their teams on an as-needed or short-term basis. Our senior-level solicitors have extensive experience of working in both international organisations and in private practice. They are available to work with you on a part-time or full-time basis, either working on-site or remotely.

ON-SITE OR REMOTE ENGAGEMENT?  OR BOTH?

How does it work?
Engaging a Virtual Law Solicitor is a quick and simple procedure:

phone-01First of all, call us and let us know the type of expertise you need, when you’ll need it, how long you’ll need it for and your approximate budget.

Group-01

We’ll identify the Virtual Law solicitors with the most appropriate expertise, draw up a proposal and make introductions.

Agreement-01If you’re satisfied with the calibre of expertise you’ve been presented with, the next step is to draw up the appropriate engagement letter.

Virtual Law’s In-House Legal Service and Locum Lawyers Service can be engaged in one of three ways: Remote, On-Site, or a combination of the two.

YOUR CHOICES

One-01REMOTE WORKING:  For when you don’t need to engage the expertise of a full-service law firm, but do need access to ad hoc professional advice. Or, for when you need an experienced professional to mop up the overspill from a specific project.  Or for when you need to run a full capacity team but your star player is on short-term leave. Our solicitors work from their own designated office using a dedicated, secure and compliant IT system to save you the cost of on-site administration.

There are two payment options for this model:

  • Hourly rates: a ‘pay as you go’ option enabling you to use your designated solicitor as and when you need
  • Daily or weekly rates:  to be agreed in advance and to include a cap of the number of hours per day worked
 

Two-01ON-SITE WORKING: A secondment style contract whereby our solicitor integrates with your team at your site.  For when you need to cover long-term staff absences.  Or you need to increase capacity or add expertise for the duration of a project.  Our solicitor may work full time or part time, dependent upon your needs.

Payment types for this model include:

  • Daily rates: to be agreed in advance and to include a cap of the number of hours per day worked
  • Monthly rates:  A fixed rate based on the chosen, set number of hours or days worked per calendar month
 

Three-01A COMBINATION OF BOTH:  This is by far the most popular choice of engagement amongst our international clients.  Our solicitors work a combination of days per week on-site and remotely, with a daily/weekly or monthly rate set for the on-site portion of the contract and a reduced daily rate/agreed number of hours set for the remote working day.  Hours worked beyond the agreed number of days will be charged at an hourly rate.
