GLS High Burst Capacity™

When you need to move mountains in minutes

The Problem

It’s a special project scenario and your legal team needs to perform weeks of work within days and days of work within hours. 

Related challenges include:  

  • this “special project” scenario comes on top of an already stretched legal team
  • as a “special project” there is a lot of pressure from the top to get the job done well and get the job done NOW
  • the deadline is so pressing that resources must be mobilised next to immediately
  • you need more than a secondee and increasing head count is not an option
  • law firms don’t offer discounted rates for short notice work on mass mobilisations
  • briefing a traditional law firm will take time as it always does
  • achieving the deadline will likely involve 24/7 support
  • co-ordinating the number of people required to get the job done will be a challenge

You physically do not have the hands to achieve the outcome needed.
