Why Flex Legal

Working as an Interim Lawyer

What if there was a better way to practice law? An ever increasing number of lawyers are finding that the fee-earning lifestyle isn't for them, and are embracing alternative models of employment.
Working as an interim lawyer is one such model, and allows you to work for fixed periods with interesting, varied clients. When working through Flex Legal, we find the opportunities for you - all you have to do is accept the ones that you are interested in. Here are some of the major benefits:
  • A significantly better life / work balance.
  • A dedicated lawyers support team, who are here to find new clients for you and ensure placements go smoothly.
  • Choose exactly how you want to be paid - under our PAYE or through your own limited company.
  • Exciting projects with interesting clients.
  • We look after the financials for you, meaning there is no need to chase clients for payment.
  • Only accept the projects that are right for you, with no minimum commitment required.
