Want to profitably grow this offering within your firm?


The Problem

  • Servicing the broader privacy needs of clients can be problematic when your key expertise is law

  • Privacy practitioning is a distraction from high value legal work

  • Efficiency and project management are critical but not the typical strengths of a law firm

  • Larger businesses may need automation to support their  privacy strategies but which tools are best in class?

  • Your junior, non experts can miss things, you are liable

  • Do you want the burden of a growing overhead and the  recruitment challenge 


The Opportunities

  • Outsource the practitioning and project management

  • Cut costs to your clients

  • Increase your margins

  • Convert smaller business enquiries which you often reject,  these can lead to complex legal work if pursued

  • Benefit from reciprocal client introductions on complex legal needs
