Enviromena (enviromena.com) is one of the leaders in the Middle East's rapidly-developing renewable energy sector. In 2007, the company constructed the first grid-connected utility scale photovoltaic plant in the region. Enviromena has attracted a broad base of investors, including some of the world's leading venture capital firms.
Enviromena had taken on a large number of additional projects and experienced a significant hike in legal spend, but could not justify hiring a full time in house counsel. Taking advantage of Support Legal’s innovative model, Enviromena agreed a retainer engagement with us. We support with all ongoing legal needs and, in areas where particular expertise is required, manage external law firm engagements. We use bi-monthly working sessions with management to review all legal matters and agree action points. We do all this for a set monthly retainer fee, regardless of the hours we spend working with Enviromena's team.
"As our business continued to scale, we began to take a hard look at hiring a full-time senior in house lawyer but couldn't justify the expense. Support Legal presented us with a perfect "bridge" option: on-call senior lawyers with expertise across a range of disciplines who provide ongoing support by way of a subscription model. We consider Support Legal an extension of our team and the institutional knowledge of our business that they possess helps drive superior outcomes for our company".
