MLP Flex Q&A

What does “commercial legal support” include? What isn’t included?

“Legal support” means assistance from any of our specialist teams, which are:

  • Employment & HR;
  • Corporate and Commercial (including intellectual property, IT law and business exit planning);
  • GDPR;
  • “Pre-issue” Commercial Dispute Resolution (including debt collection); and
  • Commercial Property
  • Residential Conveyancing
  • Business Immigration Law
  • Building and Construction
  • Wills, Trusts and Probate

MLP Flex services can be principally provided to your business or for you personally. If you are considering including personal legal assistance, such as wills, trusts or residential conveyancing services within the Flex services – do please speak to us about how this can be combined and we can arrange a complimentary review by our specialist private client team.

We can assist you with a sale or purchase of the shares or assets of a business, but the nature of this assistance means it would fall outside of the Flex services.

Can my managers/employees use my hours?

We will discuss with you who within your business will have access to our assistance. You can decide to limit this to yourself/the directors of the business or you may decide to let other senior employees contact us for assistance when the need arises. This approach is often taken in relation to employment and HR assistance or commercial contracts, where clients typically authorise contracts managers, senior managers or HR assistants to approach us directly for advice under the Flex services.

What if the needs of my business change throughout the year?

The package is fully flexible with adjustments made to support needs of business.

Am I tied in? What if I want to cancel?

We are confident that you will be 100% satisfied with the service we provide to you under MLP Flex.

Your MLP Flex service is for an initial period of 12 months.

If you have any concerns with the services at any time, we would invite you to raise your concerns with us so that we can do all we can to resolve them for you.

However, you are not tied in for any minimum period and you may cancel the arrangement at any time by informing us in writing. However, if you decide to cancel, any monthly instalments paid to date will not be returned and may need to make an additional payment to cover all work which has been incurred to date.
