Our Services

Drawing on our years providing insurance advice, the lawyers at informed Lawyers are now offering legal advice in their specialist area of consultancy agreements:

Insurance Reviews

As part of their professional indemnity insurance placement, clients of Planned Cover have long enjoyed an entitlement to insurance reviews through our sister business, informed by Planned Cover. informed Lawyers is now able to extend this service to consultants, brokers and underwriters.

These limited scope reviews identify contract clauses that raise a clear risk of infringing exclusions in the consultant’s insurance policy, as well as clauses that impose specific insurance requirements that the consultant's policy may not meet, or that conflict with claims management obligations owed to the insurer.

For cost certainty, this service is charged at a fixed price depending on length of contract, with discounts available for regular use.

Legal Reviews

A legal review of the consultancy agreement identifying clauses that raise common legal risks for consultants, such as variations, extensions of time, and termination rights.

For cost certainty, this service is charged at a fixed price depending on length of contract, with discounts available for regular use. This includes bespoke drafting of clause and alternative wordings.

Contract Negotiation

Negotiation, drafting and advice related to consultancy agreements. This service is charged at an hourly rate

Our services focus on contract-related advice which draws on our experience, so we don’t offer advice outside these three categories. For broader advice, such commercial business advice (e.g. the profitability of a particular transaction, or risks associated with your business structure), tax advice, or advice on general project risks, you may wish to consult specialists in those areas
