ANSON legal services offers independent and professional legal support and advice for Not for Profit organisations.
Our approach is to provide you with practical, timely and appropriate legal support and advice. Which means you can concentrate on what you do best – continuing to make a positive social impact in our community.
We offer you legal services that are
Appropriate – Because we’re Not for Profit specialists we understand your environment and how outcomes affect your overall mission.
Timely – In this period of great change within the Not for Profit sector, it pays to be nimble and innovative. But taking on new contracts, creating MOUs, and developing commercial arrangements all need careful consideration. We can help with that.
Cost effective – We provide legal services when you need it, on a pay per use basis. We don’t use retainers.
Flexible – As with all of our work our legal services are tailored and flexible to suit your needs.
For many small to medium Not for Profit organisations, it’s not economically feasible to have an in-house counsel on the payroll. By offering in-house counsel contracting at affordable rates we ensure you have experienced and unbiased legal services, provided by someone who understands your environment.
For those larger organisations with in-house counsel, our contracting service can provide support during busy periods or for larger projects. We can also offer mentoring for your legal staff, helping them to up-skill and providing an independent sounding board to talk through the more complex issues.
When you have an issue requiring specialist legal advice, it can be difficult and time-consuming to find the right lawyer. Utilising our extensive connections within the WA legal profession, we source specialist lawyers ensuring they are suitable to your situation, your issue and your budget.
