Transatlantic Law International (TALI) has launched a new ‘flexible’ resource on labour and employment law for corporate counsel. 

The new cross-disciplinary and cross-jurisdictional service provides a centralised offering encompassing HR and business law advice by affiliated independent law firms. 

Branded 'Labor Law Plus', TALI says the new offering will provide a centrally-managed single-service platform under one set of global terms and conditions, one-stop billing and an ‘innovative’ value-based fee structure. 

According to its service pledge, this includes pricing based on “the type of the work, not the age of the lawyer”, “beating the market without sacrificing quality or dedication”, pre-budgeting, flat rates, capped matter costs and retainers. 

“By harnessing top-rate legal teams across multiple countries under one centrally-managed global service system without the overhead and layers of traditional firms, we have shown that we can deliver global solutions more readily and achieve a tighter control of legal spend while providing faster and more effective service delivery, in a way that also relieves clients of the need to manage multiple legal relationships,” said TALI’s founder and director, Erik Lazar. 

“We have extended the same philosophy and structure into the labor and employment law sector with Labor Law Plus in a way that works and is very unique. The service will be very comprehensive, dynamic and effective.” 

TALI has said that Labor Law Plus offers a “distinct advantage” over the services provided by labour and employment law boutiques by offering a wide range of business law support services. 

The announcement follows DAC Beachcroft’s launch this summer of ‘The People Pool’, which offers a “fully flexible” service from employment lawyers, HR professionals and people managers. 

In spring, Pinsent Masons launched freelance lawyer service ‘Vario’, which follows a similar approach to Berwin Leighton Paisner’s ‘Lawyers on Demand’ (launched in 2009) and Eversheds’ ‘Agile’ (piloted in 2011). 

TALI is an organisation of around 3,500 lawyers in affiliated law firms across more than 80 countries.
