CHAS launches free legal helpline

The supply chain risk management expert has teamed up with law firm Irwin Mitchell to provide members with free legal advice via a 24/7 legal helpline.

CHAS members can use the helpline to access advice on all areas of business law, including breach of contract, property law, employment law and intellectual property, along with other legal issues. The service is operated by a team of UK-based professionals who offer straightforward, actionable advice, free from legal jargon.

The legal helpline is the latest in an ever-growing bank of CHAS membership benefits designed to help members’ businesses thrive and save them thousands of pounds a year.

CHAS Managing Director Ian McKinnon commented: “We’re really excited to launch the legal helpline and add access to free reputable, reliable legal advice to our growing range of member benefits. 
“The launch of this service reflects CHAS’s ongoing commitment to providing members with excellent value-for-money and relieving some of the pressures of running a business so they can focus on their core work.” 

Alex Lloyd, Head of Contact at Irwin Mitchell, added: “We’re delighted to be in a position to launch this legal helpline for CHAS to make life easier for their members. Our helplines have proved a big success in supporting people with their legal questions and we’re proud to be initiating the same service for CHAS.”
