We believe experienced and professional contract negotiation is critical to ensure your business relationships get off to the right start. We support businesses of all sizes, from start-ups to established global ogranisations in the industry. As your business grows, the legal support you receive from us will grow with you- from the very beginning where the focus may be on setting up your company, hiring, seeking regulatory permissions, engaging service providers, marketing your services and developing new products, right through to expansion, enhanced permissions, acquisitions and the streamlining of your day-to-day business.
Cleveland & Co External In-House Counsel™ offers an alternative to using external counsel and hiring a contractor. We work just like any other in-house counsel, using internal documentation, liaising directly with all relevant business people (including front office, middle and back office, business development, finance, risk, compliance and legal) and escalating matters to the head of the department as part of the client’s usual process. Our expertise and previous in-house experience allow us to work with a cross section of industry professionals, from portfolio managers through to CEOs, in EMEA, Asia Pacific and North America.
