Initially, South Africa’s legal industry was shaped by only a few large law firms and many smaller firms. However, as the business landscape of organisations change, consultants became a necessity. Compared to most developing countries, South Africa has a large and developed market for professional services, such as legal services. While consulting services do not substitute the services provided by law firms, it provides clients with alternatives.
Consultancies run a lean model, with low overheads that result in lower costs, apart from the actual time that is spent on matters or projects. This becomes an advantage to clients, as specific and tailored legal related work can be outsourced to consultants, whist litigation matters are still referred to law firms. It is also difficult to house an in-house legal team with a vast majority of experience as it is costly to recruit, employ and maintain a specialised legal team whose services are only needed periodically.
Elysian Consulting is focussed on providing clients, small to large sized, with alternative and specialised professional consulting services that has been customised to address the specific needs of the client, is cost effective and have the least impact on the day to day operations of the client.
