To be the best Microsoft Partner, you need the best legal support
I wanted to build the best Microsoft Partner in the UK. We had to be as good on the inside as we were on the outside, and big part of that is the legal processes and documents. I couldn’t have done it without Law 365 managing my commercial and employment matters.

Law 365 also created fair and simple employment contracts, advised on IR35 and ensured any staff dismissals were professionally handled.

‘Price chipping’ is a common problem in the sales process -- issues can arise if a business has poor commercial or HR contracts or other ‘skeletons in the closet’.
Law 365 reviewed all commercial and HR documents to ensure a successful outcome so that there was no price chipping.
Law 365 have a great client onboarding process where they analyse not only your documents, but also your processes. They improve both to help you be more efficient in closing deals. Critically they train your staff in what document to use when, allowing everyone to work smarter.

Content and Code's customers
With professional employment and HR advice from Law 365 we were able to formalise our vision of how we wanted to engage with our staff. Winning "best companies to work for" was really important to us because it meant that people outside of the business recognised that we were making considerable efforts to be an outstanding place to work. We looked more grown up and professional, and there's no doubt that it helped us retain and attract the best talent.
