Introducing Two New Practices

In an ever-changing risk environment and uncertain times, our clients’ operating environment, challenges and communication channels are evolving at an unprecedented pace.

Listening to their needs for on-time, succinct and practical legal advices, and tools, MANGEAT keeps growing and innovating by launching two new practices: Risk Management & Compliance and our General Counsel Desk.

Businesses operate in uncertain and fast changing times, and increasingly regulated environments. Risks could arise at any time, triggering exposure from multiple areas that require a 360° understanding of the Company’s business, legal and operating environment.

Clients also face on-going challenges of reducing the cost of hiring full-time in-house counsels whilst their legal departments are expected to advise on increasing volumes of complex issues and deliver against the Business’ strategic projects and objectives.

Risk Management & Compliance

It is no longer sufficient today for in-house counsels to be able to read the laws; they are expected to provide swift and practical solutions to their companies. In an ever-changing risk environment and uncertain times, companies are facing the on-going challenges to identify, assess, manage and mitigate their risks, and to monitor and ensure compliance with all relevant legal and regulatory provisions.

We counsel our clients on identifying, anticipating, and managing the risks, exposure and compliance within their company’s business operations. Our business acumen and solid knowledge of diversified industries and negotiation strategies enable us to step into our clients’ shoes to help mitigate their business disruption and provide practical advice tailored to their operating environment.

General Counsel Desk

Our General Counsel Desk is a distinct legal discipline that offers a full range of legal services across a broad spectrum of practice areas and legal operations management, providing a cost-effective legal and business-oriented support without the burden of either building or extending a permanent in-house legal team.

We step in as sole counsel to start-ups, small to mid-size companies, and family businesses that require viable legal support options for their day-to-day issues.

We also partner with general counsels and existing in-house legal departments, as their extended team members, to bridge temporary shortfalls or gaps in skilled resources and/or expertise to deliver special projects.
