Why Flex Legal

Working as an Interim Lawyer

The pressures of being a lawyer are well documented. Gruelling hours, relentless billable time targets, and a poor work / life balance. We know that many are questioning whether the conventional ‘partner route’ is right for them, and some are even leaving the industry altogether. However, this doesn’t have to be the only way.
Lawyers are starting to wake up to the benefits of flexible interim work. Instead of fitting your life around challenging work commitments, you can work through Flex Legal on an interim basis. You can work in a way that suits you, through short-term paid work placements. Consider the benefits:
  • Better life / work balance
  • We find the clients for you
  • No commitment, only work on the projects that are right for you
  • A huge variety of different work available
  • We look after the financials for you
  • Pension plan after 12 weeks continued work
