Cleveland & Co External In-House Counsel™ offers a market-leading alternative to using external counsel, hiring a contractor or hiring a full-time in-house counsel. We’ve built a new model that offers our clients the best of both legal worlds. Our clients receive the service they expect from a full-time hire with the added advantage of a wide range of expertise that an external firm offers.

Our business model is to truly integrate as an extension of our client’s team, so we are “on the ground” working alongside our clients to move their business forward in real time. In addition, our firm is built on the premise of transparency, offering clients fixed fees and monthly retainers, at highly competitive rates. Our model puts our clients’ need for continuity first by building in resource redundancy to every project. We work on our clients’ timelines.

Our expertise and previous in-house experience allows us to work with a cross section of industry professionals, from portfolio managers through to CEOs, in EMEA, Asia Pacific and North America.

We support businesses of all sizes, from start-ups to established global organisations in the industry. As our clients’ business grows, the legal support we provide grows with them. From set up, hiring, seeking regulatory permissions and developing new products, right through to expansion, enhanced permissions, acquisitions and the streamlining of your day-to-day business, Cleveland & Co is setting the pace for a new way of doing business.
