5 reasons legal teams love flexible resourcing

F-LEX is a legal tech start-up on a mission to redesign the way we work. In 2017 we launched our platform to connect law students who struggle to find legal work experience with law firms and general counsel who need paralegal support on demand. Three years in, we want to share some of the reasons over 250 clients use F-LEX for their flexible legal resourcing and come back to us time and time again:

1. Diversity and language skills

We’re really proud of the diversity of our 4,500 strong F-LEX paralegal pool. Over 35% have studied abroad, 60% identify as BAME and together they boast over 150 different languages spoken. 

2. Speed of service

We know time is money. In a matter of clicks, you can request paralegal help and choose from profiles with videos. Our record from request to paralegals starting work is two hours! 

3. Quality law graduates you can retain

At F-LEX we only onboard the very best talent from top law schools. We look for experience, personality and ambition, as well as academic achievements. Every three days a client chooses to offer one our paralegals a permanent role and sometimes even a training contract.

4. Meet peak workload without having to increase your perm headcount

Disclosures, DSARs and contract reviews can be a time consuming task that often distracts team members from other pressing work. Our service allows you to seize opportunities without the cost of permanent recruitment. 

5. Flexible and affordable pricing

At rates starting from £19/hr and the option to stop, pause and start work with no minimum commitment, F-LEX provides the ultimate flexible service. Many of our clients save costs by using our paralegals for work that may have otherwise been allocated to a junior lawyer.
