If you already have an internal legal team, then you have taken the right step towards proactive legal support.

More often than not, these internal legal teams provide great work, however, their attention may be divided among various diversified departments, products, business models, transactions and litigation.  It is a well-known fact that effective prioritizing in a shared services environment is nearly impossible.

If you need focused legal support for any specific project, transaction, strategy, policy, product, service or roll-out, then the Shimazu onsite service is the right solution for you.

We can provide legal counsels to fill your need for short term assignments (secondments), for a fixed period, for agreed number of hours, located onsite anywhere in South Africa.

We have legal counsels available with various areas of expertise to match your requirements and we are extremely flexible in this regard.

The following, however, is not negotiable:

  • focus, planning and the correct attitude to support the Client’s growth;
  • great personal fit for the Client’s environment;
  • a weekly feedback session with a Shimazu Director;
  • excellent quality of service to the Client;
  • we remain the employer/ contractor of all legal counsels;
  • we perform the necessary checks and manage performance issues; and
  • we require respect for our legal counsels.

Onsite resources still have access to other experts, templates and advice, within Shimazu, to support the success of their respective assignments.

One of the most significant benefits of an onsite lawyer is that you, as the Client, have access to an admitted attorney in your business.  They will adapt according to changes in your business, will be available to attend to matters as they arise and there will not be any clock watching.  Onsite resources perform services on a fixed fee structure which removes the risk of fee surprises and provides a level of budgetary comfort to the Client.

We would appreciate an opportunity to discuss your onsite requirements today.
