Legal Services Retainer Scheme for SMEs

How Does it Work?

For an affordable fixed monthly fee  payable by Direct Debit or Standing Order you can retain Hutharts Legal Services.

You will then have access to:

  • a solicitor specialising in Business Law operating as your in-house business lawyer
  • No extra charge for our Company Secretary Scheme services
  • No charge for time spent on telephone calls
  • No charge for meetings held with you at our offices
  • No charge for attending up to four board meetings/virtual board meetings a year discussing legal issues
  • All our other commercial law services, if required, will be provided to you at a reduced rate and will be fixed at the outset (excluding contentious matters)
  • Direct mobile number of your own solicitor
  • Your own legal advisor on Board with genuine interest in your business, because helping you to succeed is in our best interests

Save money 

Our scheme is limited to 24 hours per annum which represents excellent value for money and heavily discounted rates to suit SME’s such as yourself. Added to this, the extra Company Secretary Scheme is rolled into the cost.

Security backed by insurance

Do you grow weary of having to deal with legal and contractual issues relating to your business? Do you have the requisite skills? Do you simply try to sort out legal issues yourself but worry if you are doing the right thing? How much time and consequently money has been lost because you were tied up dealing with legal matters? We can help you keep your business safe and avoid you having to dabble in legal matters and taking grave risks.

Get it in writing, but get it right!

Incorrect legal instruments may come back to haunt you and, if they do, it will most likely involve high cost too. Having your own legal director means you are no longer charged for every minute spent on your legal matters, so you can save money and safeguard your business. This is where the Hutharts Legal Director Scheme can really make a difference.

Promote/maintain your professional image

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

Further ways in which we could optimize your commercial potential

A legal expert can often identify business prospects for you that you might otherwise have missed. A qualified solicitor could give you the advantage over your less-informed competitors.

Might you need ongoing Employment Law Support?

Why not top up your legal security cover offered by our Legal Services Scheme by subscribing to our Employment Help Desk?

 We were very impressed with the service we received. All staff were very friendly and helpful. They did not tire of my constant phone calls!
