Our client had a member of their team take a 12 month leave of absence. They knew that outsourcing all the work to a lawyer of the same level at an external law firm would be costly. They also knew that the amount of work would ebb and flow over a 12 month period and there would be some down time.
With the General Counsel, we mapped out in advance the projected quiet periods and were able to provide a LOD lawyer at the same level for the duration of the whole assignment. This solution provided our client with a senior lawyer who was able to undertake the work at a high level and provide continuity in a cost effective manner.
