Metropolitan transportation service provider.
With the internal pressure of an upcoming restructure of the legal and procurement teams, our client’s challenge was to manage the heavy ‘business as usual’ work while rebuilding the organisation chart and refreshing the talent.
The GC wanted Plexus to ‘parachute in’ a number of exceptional lawyers who could keep the business running through this period of extreme instability. Our lawyers took up the:
- Negotiation and drafting of large, complex construction contracts.
- Revision and response to RFPs and RFTs.
- Review of procurement agreements
- Provision of ad-hoc advice on a range of environmental, property, construction, and commercial issues.
Among the lawyers Plexus deployed was an ex top-tier construction partner and an ex-Deputy GC of a major Oil corporation.
The Plexus solution ‘steadied the ship’, ensuring there was no impact on service delivery and (internal) client satisfaction. Further, the cost of the Plexus engagement was about the same as the Total Loaded Cost of employment of the client’s original team. The client liked our lawyers so much they hired two of them.
