LEGAL SOLUTIONS INTEGRATED INTO BUSINESS OBJECTIVES
What is strategic legal advice?
It is about adapting a flawless legal advice to the specific business model context of an organization -of which you have full understanding- in order to facilitate the achievement of business objectives.
Current business leaders are not interested in encyclopedic legal advice and briefs, what they require are clear and condensed recommendations of action that can be shared and used with the top management.
We merge legal advice and business strategy:
translating legal matters into business consequences and strategic actions for a specific business model.
