Free Webinar - Growing your company with flexible legal services

This webinar is for companies who are feeling the need to access more legal resources, a key challenge for in-house teams. Like other departments, legal departments are feeling the crunch and are asked to do more with less, which raises internal problems. Recruiting takes time and effort, both in short supply in fast-growing companies. Unlike legal services companies that can deploy resource at short notice, in-house teams do not have that luxury.

Having an external partner does help mitigate against this as it does a lot of the heavy lifting in day-to-day legal work, which gives companies the time to spend making actual changes to influence performance and growth.

The following topics will be tackled:

  • What are the options in legal services?
  • Who needs flexible legal resources?
  • How to assess your legal needs
  • Steps to start using legal services

Dana Denis-Smith is an entrepreneur, former Linklaters solicitor and international journalist who lives in London.

In 2010, she founded Obelisk Legal Support Solutions, a WEConnect International certified women's business enterprise and alternative legal services company built around flexible, highly-skilled professionals. Dana is passionate about building a world where work and personal lives can be balanced effectively and is an outspoken advocate for women returners, women entrepreneurs and women in legal tech.

Dana is also a prominent member of the London legal tech scene, championing start-ups and individuals who strive to disrupt the legal space in positive ways.

Aware that the legal profession is far behind its times in terms of gender diversity, she initiated the First 100 Years project to celebrate the journey of women in the legal profession in the United Kingdom over the past 100 years and this project will celebrate the centenary of women in law in 2019.

This year, Dana was voted Legal Personality of the Year at the LexisNexis Awards 2018 and Obelisk Support joined the top tier of two prestigious lists, the FT1000 Europe’s Fastest Growing Companies and Inc. 5000 List of Europe's Fastest-Growing Companies. In 2017, Dana also won the WEConnect International Best Mentor and Role Model Award and delivered a TEDx talk on how to be remembered (based on her observations of the legal profession). In 2016, she was voted one of Britain’s five most inspiring mothers for juggling up a new business creation with family life, as she chooses to work flexibly in order to spend quality time with her young daughter.
