The strength of any business depends on the individuals within it, and it takes a diverse array of skill sets and abilities to make it work. Clearly all businesses have different needs and requirements, but there are some perhaps unlikely skills that many businesses can benefit from. Having a legal expert within your firm for example can help it to grow, and provide you with a certain amount of peace of mind along the way.

What are the benefits of having a legal expert on board?

Modern business is a minefield of red tape, legal requirements and risks, so being prepared for the worst can put you in good stead. There are a variety of different fields in which having a team member with legal training can prove beneficial and prudent.

Employment law, for example, is something that all businesses should be well versed in. Having a legal expert on your team who is trained in employment law can protect you against the pitfalls of hiring and firing. It can also help you to ensure that you’re complying with all regulations that are relevant to employment in your specific industry.

Your legal expert can also advise you and take responsibility for health and safety issues in the workplace. In an ever-changing world of guidelines and regulations this can prove essential for protecting your business and your workers.

The risk of compensation claims against you for accidents occurring in the workplace should also not be taken lightly, either. Accidents can occur in all manner of environments, from the factory floor and the construction site to the seemingly safe office, so you should always be prepared for litigation against you. If your premises are open to the public then there is a further risk of accidents in the form of trips, slips falls and other misadventures. Having an adequately trained legal expert can enable you to deal with any claims that arise quickly and effectively.

Providing legal training to existing staff members

You don’t necessarily have to bring in a trained and experienced solicitor, and in many cases this may not be the most suitable or cost-effective option. Instead you can provide practical legal training to one or more of your existing employees. In-house legal training can make doing so relatively easy and minimises disruption to your normal daily activities.

Providing legal training to one or more of your staff can also have other secondary benefits. It can improve their morale and make them feel like a valued part of the company, further enhancing productivity. It can also prove advantageous for other staff members, who may feel that they have somewhere to turn when they come up against a legal issue or situation.

Having someone on your team who is trained in legal matters can be a vital and indispensable resource as your company grows, and can help guide you through matters that present themselves during your expansion. And when you consider how much you might otherwise spend on external legl fees, the training is money well spent.

    What Our Clients Say

    The problem when attending any personal injury legal training course is knowing whether you are actually going to learn anything new or find a different perspective, or whether you will just hear the same things that you have heard many, many times before.

    The good news with MASS Training is that you know it is always going to be the former case. MASS’ courses are practical, informative and excellent value for money. My staff always come back feeling inspired and energised by having their existing knowledge and expertise confirmed, but also by picking up some new practical steps that they can immediately implement to make them more efficient in their day to day tasks.

    I have absolutely no hesitation whatsoever in wholeheartedly recommending MASS Training to anyone looking for Personal Injury Training. It is the best training available.

    MASS Training provide excellent content. The fact that they are in the main practising solicitors or legal executives means that not only do they fully understand their specialist subject matter, but they also know how to use this knowledge in the day to day running of their case load.

    If they are not currently running a course covering the area of law that they are interested I know that if I suggest it to them they will be happy to prepare a course for us either in-house or generally within a matter of weeks.

    We have in the past, and continue to, send our staff on the MASS Diploma Course, an excellent opportunity to develop essential skills and understanding for running RTA matters. If you are not yet ensuring your staff attend MASS Training courses, you are missing out on some of the best Personal Injury Training available.
