Grant Thornton Baltic’s in-house lawyer service is meant for businesses who don’t need a full-time staff lawyer but seek a trustworthy partner to handle the company’s day-to-day legal issues.

For the provision of in-house lawyer service an indefinite agreement is concluded, and the agreement can include various fields from strategic legal advice to drafting specific legal documents. In the context of in-house lawyer service, our legal advisers can assist you in handling the following legal matters:

  • drafting decisions made by the company’s management bodies (shareholders, supervisory board, management board);
  • drawing up minutes of meetings of company management bodies or other important meetings;
  • procedures in the Commercial Register, including submission of petitions for entries;
  • consultation on matters of labour law, including drafting employment contracts and labour law documentation (risk analysis, internal procedure rules, including procedures on holiday and leave, training procedures, safety guidelines, guidelines for remote work), and if necessary, representing the company in labour disputes;
  • drafting and reviewing contracts – e.g. contracts for services with partners or share option agreements with key personnel;
  • contact person service (obligatory if the company lacks an address in Estonia, otherwise the contact person can be appointed voluntarily);
  • quarterly reviews of changes in legal acts and analysis of judicial practice;
  • other legal advisory services (excluding in the field of criminal law).

Flexibility is naturally important for us, so we can cater to your business's changing needs. When you choose Grant Thornton Baltic’s in-house lawyer service, you’ll have one dedicated lawyer as a contact who is well-versed in precisely the details of your business. This is a more cost-effective solution for you than hiring your own lawyer, and will certainly help save on staff costs. Depending on what your company needs, you can also agree to what extent you will need the service each month. All this and more can be discussed in a consultation.

How does it work?

  1. Take contact. Call us or email us to discuss the kinds of legal matters that arise most frequently for your company.
  2. Come in for a consultation. We will make an appointment to better understand your organisation’s internal culture and needs for legal advisory.
  3. Agreement. We will sign a cooperation agreement that sets out all the main details of the in-house lawyer service.
  4. Service. We provide a custom in-house lawyer service based on what your company needs. If need be, we can visit you regularly at your offices and are always prepared to address legal questions as they arise, no matter how unexpected. 

We believe that a standing relationship based on mutual trust allows our advisers to better understand the client’s long-term goals and the success factors and particular aspects of their business activity. That in turn lays a good foundation for even more effective and higher-quality cooperation.
