Frequently Asked Questions about HCR Flex

HCR Flex is for businesses who want to complement their in-house counsel, or as an alternative to in-house counsel, by having access to commercial legal expertise as and when required.

All businesses can benefit from HCR Flex – from those that are overburdened and lacking capacity to oversee legal compliance, to those who need bespoke legal training for staff or are getting ready for the next stage in their journey – be that MBO, sale, acquisition or investment.

HCR Flex means you can dial up or down the support you need by switching between arrangements. These include a retained service for those who need less than seven hours’ a month advice, and onsite secondment providing dedicated support for one or more day each month along with a remote service or mix of the two – we can even provide interim secondments when your in-house team are at capacity or on leave. Our solicitors will be fully briefed about you and your business so they hit the ground running.

You’ll have visibility throughout, meaning you can request more or less help as you need it – with monthly invoices and quarterly reconciliations you can see how much time you use and switch accordingly. If you need to terminate, you can with 30 days’ notice at any time.

Rebecca’s HE expertise has been invaluable, as has the expertise of her colleagues in other legal specialisms. We appreciate the commercial approach of ‘our’ UniFlex team – their ability to see things from our perspective rather than from a purely legal standpoint has been very important.

I also appreciate the flexibility and responsiveness of the service. Our arrangement is for a set number of hours a week, but they aren’t on a particular day. It means we can reach out at short notice and there are no bottlenecks in turning matters around.
