Hire your Counsel
We recently thought about a unique service that provides the “Outsourcing Counsel” This special service as “Outsourcing Basis” for our clients who don’t have legal department or at least in-house lawyer, whereby as lead example, we provide on-going legal counsel to be hired solely for your company account, and to support your routine legal matters and daily practices.
Companies that have their own legal departments may use only “General Counsel Services” as a temporary or permanent extension of their in-house legal team to handle spikes in work or outsource certain legal tasks at a cost-efficient rate.
At Links & Gains, we seek to provide top legal services based on the highest code of conduct, values and professional standards and we take our responsibilities to our clients, our people, our suppliers and the communities in which we do business seriously.
