GLS Legal Manpower™

Strategically agile legal personnel

The Problem

Your legal team frequently needs additional capacity and expertise ... 

Related challenges include:

  • the capacity of you and your team is permanently stretched
  • a static headcount strategy is not meeting business need
  • there is limited budget for external support and no time to instruct
  • getting the right fit for your team is tough
  • traditional resource providers are too expensive and too slow
  • much of your need involves quick "turn around"
  • staff morale is suffering
  • short notice legal team demands distracts its strategic focus

Fortunately headcount restrictions no longer have to prevent your access to legal talent...

The GLS Solution

GLS Legal Manpower™ allows your team to deploy an agile resourcing strategy that extends beyond the filling of "operational gaps" to become a core strategic asset.

Instant Access | Rapid Mobilization | Mini/Major Assignments | Cheaper | High Quality | Sustainable | Technology Enabled | GLS Group Supported | In-House/Private Practice Experts | Strategic Resourcing

GLS Legal Manpower™ is about giving you direct access to talent that can work with you as part of your team to move your team forward.

GLS Legal Manpower™ gives you near instantaneous access to the legal dept. personnel you need, whether for overflow scenarios or more strategic projects – getting world class quality on disruptive access and pricing terms.

GLS Legal Manpower™ offers your team immediate respite from the deluge of frequently short-notice demands for additional skills or capacity to meet the needs of your business that can distract your legal team from more strategic matters.

GLS Legal Manpower™ can,  in combination with your direct hire legal team, bring a new agility and potency to your legal team - giving you access to the skills and capacity you need, where and when you need it. 

Without doubt, GLS Legal Manpower™ is far more responsive and cost effective than attempting to use your law firm providers (eg. via secondment) or the more recognized legal personnel providers such as LoD. 

Additionally, GLS Legal Manpower™ can also be used for micro-assignments - for projects as small as 4 hours - which at our price points would cost the same as one hour of support from a major law firm. 

Problem solved.
