FROM OUR CLIENTS
GLS transformed our templates from long, technical, jargon-filled documents to modern, short, accessible ones in plain language. The templates are now quicker and easier to prepare, negotiate and manage and harder to get wrong, with savings in time all round.
Senior Corporate Counsel – Commercial | Rio Tinto
FROM OUR CLIENTS
GLS assisted us with drafting a complex agreements. They did an excellent job helping us decide the required contracts and also guided us through the entire processes. My experience was painless and my expectations were certainly surpassed. I have since referred several clients to them and will continue to do so.

FROM OUR CLIENTS
GLS has worked in close partnership with BIC over the past 2 years and within this short span of time have demonstrated their commitment to providing exceptional consumer focused legal services to BIC. GLS listens to your goals with undivided attention and helps you to achieve the most sensible outcome within the limited budget. I recommend GLS highly.
Legal Director MEA | BIC
FROM OUR CLIENTS
The suite of template documents that are available, and the team’s knowledge and flexibility to tailor it for our needs, has allowed us to find a very cost-efficient high-quality legal documentation solution. I would highly recommend GLS Law to not just start-ups, but also to any firms who are looking to reduce their legal costs (who isn’t, right?) without compromising but even improving standards.
COO | 3D Investment Partners
FROM OUR CLIENTS
GLS simplified our legal contract requirements with a great depth of understanding of our business, allowing us to be more agile and efficient in contract negotiations. The team at GLS is fast, inquisitive, extremely thorough and pricing was very competitive. This was conducted with a no-nonsense plain English approach. I highly recommend GLS for their innovative legal solutions and services.

Peter Hoppe | General Counsel | Rio Tinto
A unique and powerful guide to address Legal Operations’ challenges and transform them into opportunities.
Hassan Elmiligui | Head of Legal Operations | Cap Gemini
GLS’s Ultimate Guide to Legal Operations couldn’t be more timely. As businesses move towards an increasingly tech-driven space, stronger demand for standardisation on legal documentation, coupled with an ever more complex regulatory environment, it is imperative upon in-house legal teams to rethink their roles and the tools they need to optimise legal services and create real business value. This Ultimate Guide is a real treasure to help legal teams think through the problem statements in a structured fashion, and works as a lighthouse in search for the solutions we need.
Diana Gan | Head of Legal | Dulwich International
GLS’s book goes beyond the hype and knuckles down with practical tips on how to structure and guide the transformation of a legal department of any size. Many legal departments have various levels of maturity and the larger they are the harder it can be to decide where to start. With its Tube Map, formative stations and repeater stations, you can decide what actions will give you the best return for the effort that will undoubtedly be needed.

- Businesses looking to enhance the capabilities of their legal teams
- 1-person "legal teams" that need to leverage their expertise and capacity

Legal teams looking for world-class resources at more affordable prices
Absolutely. You can simply register on the LOC for free right here and you will instantly get access to a wide range of “solutions” for you to try – that are of real value – indeed more than USD20K if you sourced them from a law firm, excluding the millions spent on the underlying tech.
As a lawyer, you will appreciate that legal team resources are not like “Spotify” – so we cannot give you a free trial of every one of our solutions for a month to see if you want to buy. But we can give you access to our precedents, legal ops tools, training resources … and much more.
You can book a free appointment right here or simply register for free on the LOC, and we will send you a detailed Welcome Pack and a series of automated emails that effectively introduces how the LOC can help your in-house legal team to achieve more with less.
As you know, some requirements are unique to your life and your business, and require your dedicated attention. We believe that this is where you need to focus your team’s energy and resources.
But many legal support scenarios that in-house legal teams face are common to most businesses. It is on these “common” support scenarios where we have focused our attention and developed effective support solutions.
GLS optimises through standardisation, enabled through legal tech, to reflect superior business process engineering.
The end result is a truly world-class solution that is easy to implement and customise as required for your unique case use. All for a fraction of the time and cost that it would take you to produce and/or source the solution yourselves.
“Team” is the operative word here. Our mandate it to improve in-house legal “team” performance. So, anytime one member of your team accesses a solution – it is available to all team members. Is that happening right now in your legal team?
Many of our clients welcome the fact that the GLS Legal Operations Centre becomes the centralized repository of legal teams resources that they do not currently have. We can set your team up with a “Corporate Account” that allows you all to operate from a single account.
Firstly, there simply isn’t any other provider out there that we have encountered that focuses solely on the in-house legal community. But let’s run through it.
Some of the larger more recognised knowledge providers (you know who they are) rely on crowd-sourced contributions – resulting in knowledge resources that are not standardised, harmonised and integrated. It’s a mismatch of knowledge with different analytical approaches and usefulness.
And, some of the knowledge resources are limited to case law notes, checklists and templates. A tiny fraction of the resources that an in-house team needs.
More importantly – most knowledge resources are contributed by law firms. Law firms view the world differently from in-house legal teams – and are rarely as practical and commercial as is needed.
And then there are law firms – their business model is not based on in-house legal teams becoming more independent.
The resources we have available massively outstrip what in-house corporate counsel associations have available for their members.
So there you have it – GLS focuses solely on the needs of the in-house legal community. No one else does quite like we do.
GLS focuses on helping in-house legal teams achieve maximum productivity & performance outcomes whilst reducing human and financial resource consumption. In short, we help you get more done yourself.
So, we offer cost effective access to world class tools that help you deliver better in-house performance. We suspect that we do not need to unpack how this differs from your average law firm.
We should flag that we do have a licensed law firm within the Group, if you ever needed it, but GLS Solutions Pte Ltd itself is not a law firm and does not offer legal advice. Our sole focus is all about the tools & solutions that in-house teams need.
