Unity seeks to improve access to justice for SME clients and, in particular, Genesis members. If you have tried to recover monies form a larger supplier, you understand the problems.
Unity is not a traditional firm of solicitors (although staffed by solicitors and barristers) so doesn’t offer the service of acting for clients in litigation or transferring property. Instead, Unity provides a range of legal advisory services at transparent, fixed costs. The key services Unity provides to Genesis members are:
- Providing legal advice on a range of commercial issues. In the context of disputes, this will be preliminary advice as to the chances of success and the process involved.
- Identifying the most appropriate solicitor, barrister or expert witness for a case and negotiating fees
- Where appropriate, brokering litigation funding
- Arranging mediation. Mediation is often the most cost-effective method of resolving disputes and Unity provides an experienced team of mediators.

The Legal Director is a fully regulated law firm that supports businesses with their legal work by providing high-calibre, experienced lawyers on a flexible basis.
For many SMEs, the concept of having an in-house General Counsel just when you need them might be new. Often legal services are procured on an ad-hoc basis or reacting to sudden changes in business circumstances, rather than planning pro-actively for the long term. The Legal Director is different.
By working with a TLD Client Legal Director, you will cover 99% of your legal needs, saving significant amounts of money and directors’ time in the process.
