ADR organizes and runs the outsourced legal departments of its Client Companies. We have gained experience by working for businesses with annual sales volumes up to 500 million euros that operate in Italy and abroad.
HOW ADR OPERATES
The preliminary phase is dedicated to a targeted study of the requirements of a Limited Liability Company: in most cases, Client need a structured advising service in the field of domestic and international business agreements, labour law, administrative law (tenders and procurement), criminal law (occupational safety, environmental safety, HACCP standards), data protection, Legislative Decree No. 231/2001, Antitrust Compliance models, etc.
During the preliminary phase, ADR will directly interact with the structure of the Client Company. For example: the Company’s Human Resources Manager will directly interact with our labour law department, the Tender Manager will directly interact with our administrative law department, etc.
Through the remote everyday interaction and collaboration, over a three month period the two units will be completely integrated.
ADR organizes in-house coordination meetings about a Client Company on a weekly basis. This exchange makes it possible to view any single case file from a 360 degree legal point of view. The Client will not need to coordinate different legal advisors, because ADR will automatically do everything necessary through its own organization.
On a monthly/quarterly basis, depending on the amount of tasks it has been entrusted with, ADR will deliver a report to the Client Company concerning the state of progress of the case files dealt with.
The organization of different legal advisory services through ADR allows optimization and even cost reduction, especially for companies that had different advisory relationships (one adviser for labour law, one for tax litigation, one for criminal litigation, etc.).
Some Clients have optimized their costs up to over 25% compared to the previous fiscal year, in other cases the Client has decided to keep the costs at the same level as before but has considerably extended the range of the legal services used. ADR will take its own entrepreneurial risk while offering its Clients a flat rate agreement.
All the activities in which ADR will be involved on behalf of a Client Company will be carried out at a fixed annual fee. In addition to that, should a legal issue end up in a pre-action phase, or even in legal proceedings, ADR will select a team of legal professionals, organize the defence activity and pay the professionals for their work, all this without affecting the fee agreed upon. A cost-effective solution for keeping an item of expenditure that is sometimes considerable within the annual budget.
