IT Managed Service Provider Timico has signed up to the 360 Business Law subscription service for a third consecutive year, as an alternative to employing an in-house lawyer and specialist third party legal support.
Alex Hendry, Head of Commercial at Timico, describes the service, which gives access to a network of 250 legal experts in 60 countries for a fixed monthly fee, as ‘ideal’ for the day-to-day running of the company’s business.
He said: “Generally, when you want to use an external lawyer, you need the CFO to approve the cost of every piece of work. With the subscription service, we can rely on one external resource to support our legal needs without worrying about the costs racking up. It is great to be able to call upon the support of a highly qualified team you can trust at the drop of a hat.”
On-demand access to multiple lawyers with specialist knowledge and experience is particularly useful given Timico’s fluctuating workloads, acquisitions strategy and the size and complexity of some managed services contracts, including a recent multi-million-pound contract for secure SD-WAN across over 1,200 franchisee sites.
