Roel Hakvoort, project manager at Halsten and Saskia Baan, legal counsel at Halsten:
“The maturity analysis is a bespoke process. Based on interviews with the various departments, we draw up a report with targeted recommendations for legal optimisation. The report brought three main duties to light, which were subsequently addressed and implemented by Halsten. A Halsten legal counsel provides substantive support in the areas of compliance and integrity. We can provide specialised expertise for these subjects, making our legal counsel a valuable asset in this area. We also provided the recruitment and selection of a legal counsel who now works in this client’s legal department. With the maturity analysis, useful points of reference were identified, showing the legal fields in which and level on which reinforcement was needed. The legal counsel is also assisted and coached by Halsten. We were able to take the contract management up a notch. We made recommendations regarding a digital contract management system that incorporates the contracts from all parts of the company. Digitising this process enabled our client, active in the world of logistics, to make significant efficiency improvements.
Halsten’s strength in this case? With our sound, multidisciplinary approach and addressing all the ensuing activities, we helped this client achieve professionalisation in the legal field. Our maturity analysis kick starts the optimisation of legal departments and processes.”
