Helping litigators in the run up to trial

Flex Legal and Grosvenor Law

Grosvenor Law is a leading law firm based in Mayfair specialising in complex disputes between business relationships or personal life. They represent high net worth individuals, companies, partnerships and trusts.

Flex Legal and Grosvenor Law have been working together since February 2019. Flex Legal has provided paralegals to Grosvenor Law for 3-6 month fixed term contracts when Grosvenor Law has been particularly busy. They have also used Flex Legal when they have needed assistance on international cases where foreign language skills have been required. Flex Legal has over 150 native language speakers on their platform and this has been a really popular way for law firms to get those translation skills for particular projects without having to add fixed headcount cost.

Flex Legal paralegals love working at Grosvenor Law as it provides them with the opportunity to work on incredibly interesting cases which are high value, high profile and factually and legally complex. They also learn a lot about litigation and enjoy a high level of supervision. Grosvenor Law have enjoyed having the paralegals from Flex Legal, all of whom have been of exceptional quality.

Mary Bonsor, CEO of Flex Legal said “I have known Michelle from when we worked together at Winckworth Sherwood. It is great to still be in touch and help such a prestigious firm when they are busy and we pride ourselves on finding candidates who fit their firm and understand the importance of confidentiality, and are personable given their client base”.

Flex Legal fills gaps for projects when we need quick niche specialist language skills as well as when we have peaks of work. I have always been really impressed with the calibre of the candidates, most of which have good academics and a training contract. The responsiveness of the team at Flex Legal has also proved to be invaluable, particularly when we have needed to resource projects on extremely short notice.
