Conexus Law Logo

Conexus Law is a specialist advisory firm, providing legal and business advice to clients who operate at the intersection of the built environment, technology and people. Ed Cooke, the founder of Conexus Law is an expert in his field having been a partner at DLA Piper and Bird and Bird before setting up his own venture.

Flex Legal and Conexus Law have been working together since the beginning of 2020. Flex Legal have helped Conexus Law add to its growing team of impressive lawyers. Conexus Law has made 2 permanent hires through Flex Legal and they continue to work together.

Conexus Law and Flex Legal have a similar approach to supporting clients with robust, creative and commercially pragmatic solutions. In addition to Flex Legal providing recruitment support for Conexus Law, Conexus Law has also been able to help out some of Flex Legal’s clients; most recently assisting on some urgent legal advice on a construction matter. The work was done over the weekend and the end client was really happy. Both companies believe in work life balance and integration and the team at Conexus Law work in a way that empowers them to deliver exceptional client service, but also allows them the flexibility to manage responsibilities at home and to live life to the full.

This has become even more important due to Covid. Offering both flexibility in terms of how client’s matters are handled and around how the work is carried out, allows for more innovative solutions in turn.

“Flex Legal look forward to continuing to help Ed and Conexus Law grow and we wish them all the best with their continued success. They are a great client to have and as we see more specialist firms form, it creates opportunities to refer work between our clients which has been a great success.”

- Mary Bonsor, CEO of Flex Legal

Ed Cooke's face

We offer a range of different career paths, and work with each new team member to establish what is the best fit, providing the right platform to enable career growth. Flex Legal have been very supportive of this approach and we have received some excellent hires. It has also been great to get referred work from their other clients and I hope this can continue as both of our businesses grow.”
