Who We Are

A new approach to legal advice

Vialex was founded in 2010 with a vision to meet our clients’ day to day legal requirements, including corporate, commercial, IP/IT, data protection, regulatory, banking, employment, HR and health & safety, in a more comprehensive and cost effective manner than a traditional law firm, but always without compromising on quality.

We call this our Legal Counsel Service.

We deliver our services using experienced solicitors (whom we call legal advisers). They have in-house legal experience and share 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 discrete transaction.

We call this Transaction Services and we provide these through our associated law firm Vialex W.S. which is regulated by the Law Society of Scotland.

We are able 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 does 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.

What we did for...

It was important to us that our legal advisers were aligned to our business values, and we were impressed by the approach Vialex took to support our business by offering a ‘virtual’ in-house legal team who look after our day-to-day legal needs.

George Tait - Director and Company Secretary

We have worked with Vialex since 2012, following our buyout from a major UK foods group, when our fast evolving business required a different approach to meet our legal services needs in a cost effective way. At the time it was something of a leap of faith for Quorn Foods but we have been delighted with the service from Vialex, and the appetite they have shown to support us in any way they can.

David Artindale - Head of Procurement
We use the Vialex Legal Counsel Service as our day-to-day support for all our contracts and legal issues. They act as an extension of our own team and work with us to help us achieve our commercial goals. The subscription means we can get the advice we need when we need it for a fixed cost.

Arceeb Moughal - Director of Commercial

The Vialex Legal Counsel Service does what it says on the tin. We get a quality legal support service that responds to our needs, very often working to short timescales. The Vialex team has been particularly instrumental in assisting with our international contractual arrangements as we expand our reach into a number of new overseas markets.
