The power of a paralegal: the beginning of Flex Legal
Paralegal work has been the core of Flex Legal since its inception. The entire idea of Flex first came to Mary, our CEO and co-founder, when she was practising as a property litigator in London.
One day she found herself in the office surrounded by bundles, boxes and looming deadlines. In a moment of frustration, she looked out of the window and saw law students queueing for a lecture. She remembered her time doing the same, and how desperate she had been for legal work experience. Suddenly an idea clicked.
What if there was a way for busy legal teams to reach out to experience-hungry law students, and flexibly bolster their ranks during peaks of work? What if it could be done as easily as ordering a taxi or a pizza? Flex Legal was born!
Since then, Flex has grown into an industry-leading lawtech platform. We’ve helped hundreds of legal teams find flexible support during busy periods, and thousands of law students and graduates find the paralegal work experience they’re after.
