How Flex Legal can help you

Our award-winning online platform connects you to interim lawyers, trainees, and paralegals. We are proud to already be trusted by FTSE250 companies and top law firms.
Hiring legal professionals on an interim basis is fast, cost-effective, and entirely custom-tailored to your needs. If your legal team’s workload unexpectedly ramps up, if you need to cover fixed periods of leave, or even if you want to find a perfect lawyer without the recruitment hassle - interim hiring is the best way to solve your problems quickly.
Unlike traditional recruitment agencies, Flex Legal stays in touch with you once a placement begins. We’ll educate ourselves on the structure of your team, and make informed suggestions to ensure you get maximum value from your interim hire. If a placement isn’t working out, we’ll find an alternative candidate for you immediately.
We love being challenged with new requests, so get in touch!

Our commitment to diversity and social mobility

We love the legal industry, which is evident in many of our HQ staff being qualified or aspiring solicitors. With that love comes a desire to see it improve and be more diverse, more inclusive, and more representative of the society it serves.
The legal profession suffers from an unfortunate stereotype of being archaic and exclusive. There’s an element of truth in that. We can do things differently and better - which is why Flex factors social mobility into everything we do.
As a company opening the door to the next generation of legal professionals, we try to offer a diverse blend of talented people the opportunities they deserve. This is a huge part of our success and we’re proud to share these statistics about our platform users:
  • 59% female
  • 52.8% BAME
  • 79.4% state school educated
  • 31% studied abroad
  • 150+ languages spoken
