Legal consultation is a discipline where the consultants have a formal certification founded upon years of academic study and monitored practice and more ongoing formally measured professional development. Consequently, your chief concern is to find a consultant in the requisite legal consulting area.
The next consideration is whether your consultant should have experience and understanding in your organization’s sector and industry. And the ultimate consideration is the forte of this knowledge and experience– ranging from fairly aware to highly profound.
Legal consultation is all about the application of the law, and the sub-disciplines are very recognizable, with evidently defined boundaries.
