At Beyond Compliance we understand how important the people within your legal organisation are, as well as how important it is that you can manage and support them in the right way. We can offer you pragmatic advice and tailored solutions to your HR challenges, while supporting you in getting your people management right, in a way that suits your organisation and your team.

Whilst lawyers can, of course, find their way around employment legislation and HR processes, or may even be experts themselves. If you don’t have a separate HR function though, taking the time to put these in place in your own firm or chambers can be very time-consuming and can impact on your ability to do what you are best at – earning fees!

Case Study

A barristers chambers client recently went through some significant change and decided to overhaul their HR policies and processes at the same time. Beyond Compliance were engaged to create and implement new policies and procedures from scratch rather than try to update the old versions which were over 15 years old.
