Secondment Services

Counselect - Expert lawyers for secondment legal services

Not all organisations may require a long-term in-house legal counsel but may require to occasionally engage with legal specialists for specific or critical projects. Counselect, the secondment offering by Vahura, was started to address this unique gap for short-term legal specialists. We help identify the right legal professionals to act as in-house legal resources with client organisations for specific short-term projects.

We understand that the need for an expert is not determined by bandwidth, resources or access.

When is a secondment necessary?

  • Short-term or project-oriented need for additional legal resources

  • Situations requiring close monitoring or alignment with an in-house team (that therefore cannot be referred to a law firm).

  • Recruitment freeze or non-availability of headcount approval.

  • Team member/s proceeding on maternity leave or long personal leave.
