SMEs & corporates

If you’re reading this, then chances are you’ve engaged lawyers before…

Our USP is that we offer the same skills and expertise as traditional law firms (where we trained and practised for years) but without the associated cost and friction. Our view is that legal support is a service industry – with the emphasis on “service” – and our role as a consultant is to make it easier (or at least less risky) for our clients to achieve their business goals. We focus on delivering practical solutions promptly, affordably and as described. If you’re an experienced buyer of legal services, we think you’ll be delighted with our offering.

Some examples of our recent work are:

  • preparing and supporting negotiations of business-critical IP, IT and commercial contracts, such as supply chain (sale, purchase, agency and distribution); IP licensing; software licensing and reselling (including SaaS); sponsorship, merchandising and endorsement arrangements; collaboration and development agreements for new technologies; and website standard terms (including e-commerce terms);
  • preparing and delivering training on specific commercial, legal or regulatory issues; or on contractual negotiations;
  • supporting large-scale M&A, procurement and outsourcing projects; and
  • supporting GDPR compliance projects in companies from start-ups to multinationals.

  • As the sole legal counsel at Perspectum Diagnostics there are times when I required an extra pair of hands. Max proved to be a safe pair of hands in providing the commercial legal support I needed. He is responsive, knowledgable, pragmatic and consequently, excellent value for money. He can provide a seamless adjunct to an overstretched legal team or act as an ad hoc legal counsel to smaller companies. I would have no hesitation in recommending Max.

  • Max was incredibly diligent in his review of the documentation, providing clear guidance on where risks lay and how to approach negotiations from previous experience on similar projects. I was very happy with the level of service and responsiveness. I would recommend and definitely use Max again.

    Gousto Marco Attanasio, Head of Business Operations
  • Max provided excellent support in providing new Ts&Cs for an new product that was still evolving. Max was very effective in dealing directly with internal clients, and provided great support and was a valued addition to the team.

    Just Eat Warren Smith, Senior Legal Counsel
  • Max has been incredibly helpful in matters of contractual agreements this past year, some of which turned out to be difficult and lengthy. Throughout the entire process though, Max has been highly professional, utterly calm, and extremely patient. He was very well informed on every aspect, and able to assist in all questions that arose. We would certainly work with Max again, and are grateful to have received such generous pro bono support. Thank you!

  • We see Max as a part of our team rather than an external legal advisor. His advice is always clear, concise and pragmatic and more importantly he is able to interface effectively with all our internal stakeholders.

    International Biotechnology Company General Counsel
  • Max is an absolute pleasure to work with and fits right into our in-house legal team. Max has built up strong relationships with members of the business that he has worked with and is an invaluable member of our team. Max always provides accurate, clear and commercially focused advice and is very responsive. I cannot recommend Max highly enough.
