In-house Counsel

FLI prides itself on providing the highest quality full service, at a blended rate – allowing clients to think big and access local expert legal support.

At a time of massive downsizing and retrenchment undertaking across the board, FLI’s Assistant GC support is a very timely and viable alternative for in-house legal departments feeling the pressure. FLI can deploy (either through secondment or virtual) booths on the grounds to render assistance to the GC, AGC, or corporate counsel of any in-house legal teams. Our team of subject matter experts, all former GCs or AGCs of Fortune Companies bring a significant amount of experience to our clients.

GDPR: Brexit Implications on UK, EEA & Third Countries

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) controls how organizations collect, use and store personal data. It applies to both businesses based in the European Economic Area (EEA) and to those with no physical establishment in the EU, but with operations that fall into the extraterritorial scope of the GDPR.  Fines for GDPR violations can reach €20m or 4% of the annual worldwide turnover (whichever is higher).
