Our client, an infrastructure funding and investment start-up, needed urgent help establishing internal legal processes for AML, KYC and transaction management. CondorFlight were able to insert an experienced corporate lawyer within a matter of days, who was able to hit the ground running and start sorting things out from day one.  It was a godsend for the client – they simply didn’t have the resources or even know where to start.  CondorFlight provided a targeted, cost-effective and efficient way to deploy the right expertise when and where it was needed most and the client is delighted with the support.

CondorFlight is the ‘people powered’ division of our alternative legal solutions platform bringing our clients together with the skilled lawyers they need without the time and cost of instructing a law firm.

As a fully flexible legal service, clients benefit from being able to access CondorFlight lawyers by the hour or by the day to achieve contingent resources for large-scale projects or as interim legal support.  All of the CondorFlight  lawyers can also provide agile and remote working, where and when it suits you and your needs.

Flexible Expertise

The legal department of a Global Investment Bank had to review a range of trading platform documents for MIFID II compliance purposes against a tight deadline (6 weeks). Normally the work would be done by senior lawyers in-house. Due to the number of platforms and the value the client is reluctant to use a law firm.

We provided access to two Senior Lawyers to support the bank’s internal legal team that can each talk on a number of these reviews per week over the delivery period at times to suit our lawyers. Although our Senior Lawyers both work remotely from the client, they work together on the reviews to share knowledge and ensure consistency of output.The client preferred to pay an amount per completed review. The cost to the client was half the fee that the law firm quoted for the same job and it was delivered on time.

Immediate Resourcing Needs

 

An investment banking client needed a team of five paralegals at short notice to complete a high priority project. 

We are able to quickly provide 5 appropriately skilled and screened paralegals (approved by the client) to work for 3-4 months of this project, giving the client the flexibility to resource up or down after 3 months.

Access to Expertise

 

An asset manager within a small legal department required sporadic and fluctuating legal support in different specialist areas that it did not have.

We established an informal “panel” of Senior Lawyers providing flexible resource that the client could access during demand spikes. It was important to the client that they have continuity of a lawyer, even though their need is sporadic. Understanding the clients’ business is an important consideration in our advice. Our Senior Lawyers are always willing to attend the client’s office to put names to faces and understand more about the business.The client was happy to pay a variable rate based on usage of our Senior Lawyers. They were delighted to be paying less than a half of the rate it had been paying to its law firm for the same level of lawyer.

Dynamic Resourcing

A start up investment fund platform needed help with managing legal counsel and transaction management during the platform’s build phase. The client knew that they would be very busy, as well as experience quiet phases, when there wouldn’t be much for lawyers to be doing (other than being on stand-by).
