Navigating the new normal

Bates Wells On Demand


If you need to cover a short term lack of resource, whether for sickness, furlough or other reasons, deliver a key project or upskill quickly as a result of the current crisis, we can provide a Bates Wells legal advisor as an extension of your team. Whether it’s a few hours per month, or whole days each week, we offer flexible ways of helping you.

As the response to COVID-19 continues to evolve, businesses are increasingly seeking help to manage reduced capacity and/or legal spend.  Whatever your need – from paralegal through to senior partner – we have people with specialist and with general skills who will be able to help you out.

We can arrange to provide a single dedicated lawyer for a set amount of time, or we can offer a team of people to work alongside you. We will then work directly with you, and if required, can provide direct professional supervision.

Whether it’s a few hours or a whole week, we will work with you to put together the right people, at the right level and the right price.  You can even interview them beforehand to make sure they are the right match.

Some of the advantages of this service include:

  • Access to a team that already know your business and/or are highly skilled in sector
  • Cost effectiveness
  • Flexible range of lawyers at different levels
  • Access to our market leading knowledge and experience

So, if any of this is of interest to you, please give us a call and we would be happy to discuss it with you.  We are happy to work around your needs and can usually offer an option to meet the trickiest requirements.
