Quality improvement and risk management through the provision of an in-house expert
Besides advising our clients, we also offer (temporary) in-house counselling. Through in-house counselling, we are able to help our clients assess their current (legal) structures or set up more efficient processes that are in line with the applicable legal standards and regulations. Our emphasis will be on both regulating the internal processes of our clients as well as educating them on relevant legal issues so that they will be able to assess and manage risks and costs in future business transactions.
We provided our service to several governmental bodies to improve the quality of their internal (legal) processes. In doing so, we gained extensive experience in reviewing and supplementing permits.
Let us know which (permit) system you would like to have examined and our employees will provide you with an extensive review of the general rules - for example the general local regulations -, the policy and current decision formats. Moreover, we will provide you with recommendations on how to improve decision-making processes in your business. This type of quality and efficiency improvement trajectories can of course also be applied to other organisations.
In our experience, in-house counselling is most efficient if one of our employees becomes part of your organisation for a certain period of time so that they can work face to face with your employees and consult with them on current (legal) processes to improve efficiency.
Offering in-house counselling or broader training programmes allows our lawyers to further broaden their understanding of certain legal aspects as well as apply a more business-oriented approach to their profession.
Our in-house counselling project can also accommodate internal capacity problems or the temporary (maternity) leave of one or more of our client’s employed legal experts.
