Welcome to Vialex, an innovative legal services organisation providing day to day commercial legal advice and corporate transactional services to clients across the UK and internationally.
Who are Vialex?
Vialex Limited was founded in 2010 with a vision of meeting our clients’ day to day legal requirements, including corporate, commercial, IP/IT, data protection, regulatory, banking, employment and property law, in a more comprehensive and cost effective manner than traditional law firms, but always without compromising on quality. We call this our Legal Counsel Service. To ensure flexibility in delivery and pricing, Vialex Limited and its group companies are not law firms but our services are delivered by experienced legal advisers, many of whom have in-house legal experience, and all of whom have an overriding commitment to providing a market leading service.
Vialex also advises companies and investors on corporate transactions throughout the UK, such as fundraisings, investment and M&A. We undertake transactions for existing Legal Counsel Service clients and other clients who instruct us for a discreet transaction. For regulatory reasons, we provide these Transaction Services through our associated law firm Vialex W.S. which is regulated by the Law Society of Scotland.
This dual structure allows us to manage our clients’ day to day legal needs on a flexible and cost effective basis whilst, at the same time, meeting all our clients’ corporate transactional needs.
Why use Vialex?
We make our clients’ life easier by achieving a significant understanding of their businesses, resulting in better and more pro-active management of their legal requirements and certainty of cost.
How do Vialex do that?
We believe that our fees should be determined by the value to a client of our work, rather than the amount of time our advisers spend on a particular matter. We call that value billing. We always seek to agree a fee in advance for a particular piece of work, often on a fixed or capped basis, and will not retrospectively re-price.
In particular, we provide our Legal Counsel Service for a fixed monthly subscription, for which we undertake all of a client’s legal needs within an agreed scope.
In order to price work in this manner, we have to understand our clients’ business and priorities. We encourage our clients to make us part of their team by communicating with us regularly and at an earlier stage, allowing us to anticipate the issues that will affect them and pro actively manage those issues. Our clients appreciate the fact that they do not get charged simply for communicating with us.
If a client prefers to engage Vialex on a more traditional basis (which we refer to as “pay as you go”) then we will agree competitive terms again reflecting a value billing philosophy.
