The Client

PeoplePlus, part of the Staffline Group, supports people into work by providing training and education to people who face barriers to employment, helping them to find jobs, and sustain their careers. Their major focus is fostering employability and upskilling people, as well as working with employers to develop their businesses by accessing candidates from parts of the labour market which they might not normally consider, thus supporting the growth of both their commercial and social value.


PeoplePlus works with a wide range of national, devolved and local government departments across England, Scotland and Wales; and its committed teams deliver a variety of public services including employment support, adult skills training and education, independent living support, prison education and business start-up advice through its network of local offices and innovative digital platforms.

What were PeoplePlus looking for in a law firm?

PeoplePlus had previously relied on a mix of traditional laws firm to cover all of their legal needs on an ad-hoc basis. However, they found this to be an expensive approach for their needs. Although they do still work with a variety of firms for their specialist requirements, they began to seek a more cost-effective / cost-certain alternative for their day-to-day legal matters and document reviews.

Why 360 Business Law?

360 Business Law offered cost-effective, high-quality legal support that answered PeoplePlus’ everyday legal needs. The innovative retainer model that offers PeoplePlus a fixed fee was a major draw.

By negotiating a fixed fee that matches the predicted volume of work for the year, PeoplePlus knew that their legal needs were covered without a disproportionate fee attached. And since we aren’t faced with surprise bills at the end of each month – even when workloads fluctuate – we are able to budget ahead with confidence.

When it comes to consistent day-to-day contract reviews, checking over T&Cs for bids, and legal sense checks, 360 Business Law was the obvious option. And with their broad expert coverage of different areas of the law, from contract to property law, PeoplePlus is confident in 360’s ability to support us across the board.
