Services for Law
Firms

We deliver corporate services for law firms looking for a more efficient way of supporting their clients.

Many of our team have worked for leading law
firms. We understand the importance of the
client relationship and that you need a partner to
help you get the work done and done right.

We handle the support activities, leaving
you to focus on what you do best.

Managing Client Relationships

Our background and experience means we are used to managing the relationship between us, the firm and end client.

Associate Training

We have experienced tutors.

Lean

We don’t have the over heads of a traditional firm and we use technology to keep fees down.

How we work with Law Firms

Each of our clients has their own preferred way of working. However, we’ve usually found most relationships fall in to 3 models.

We work in the background for you, the firm.

This allows the firm to offer a broader set of services to their client without needing the skills or expertise in-house.

More commonly, firms prefer for us to work directly for the client as an additional supplier.

This removes the need for the firm to manage the work and our staff refer the client back to the firm, when specialised legal advice is required.

Transfer Existing Clients

When firms choose to no longer offer company secretarial services we work with you to migrate clients, whilst ensuring the day to day relationship is maintained.

FAQ

Have questions? We’re here to help

Do you require KYC for incorporation?

If we are just forming the company then no KYC is required, we will treat the law firm as our client. If we are providing other services we will need KYC; however, this can be provided at a later date and we will continue to treat the firm as our client until the end client can be onboarded.

Can you help reconstitute the statutory books?

Where the Client is an existing company with historical company secretarial records, our time spent importing the records into our system and generally onboarding the historical records, will be charged at our standard hourly rates assuming the work is more than minimal. Further, any ad hoc work or work outside of the scope of the above services, will be charged at our standard hourly rates.

How does invoicing work?

If Elemental are only forming the company, then law firm will be the client. Elemental will issue an invoice to the law firm quoting the matter number once the company is formed. If Elemental is providing other services to the client, then the invoice can be issued directly to the client or to law firm as desired.

How quickly can the service be setup?

We can provide our services promptly. Our bespoke corporate services hub can be set up in a matter of days but our services can be provided immediately if the work is deadline driven.

Do you need to speak directly with the client?

This is up to you. We are happy to liaise directly with clients if helpful.
