In-house reaches for outsource support
Outsourcing onerous legal work
IT Lab had a good internal team with an in-house counsel. However, as the company was growing and acquisitive, there was already a huge amount of work to do for the in-house team.
After meeting Law 365, it made sense to outsource the commercial contract negotiations to allow the in-house team to focus on everything else.
The specialist Microsoft legal knowledge that Law 365 has, as well as the knowledge around IP and specific software agreements meant that IT Lab knew they had a trusted partner to work with their sales teams to rapidly negotiate contracts and ensure sales were not slowed down.
Acquiring means standardising
IT Lab were acquiring companies and therefore needed to standardise contracts across the various different companies.
Law 365 helped audit existing contracts and processes. They then updated, standardised and/or rationalised the suite of contracts and provided training on the new, improved contracts and procedures.
This is an onerous but necessary task to undertake to simplify and unify contracts managed this process.
Law 365 also helped with the novation of contracts and managed supplier and customer issues as they arose.
