Legal & Compliance Workforce
A FLEXIBLE EXTENSION OF YOUR TEAM
As a company
When it counts.
Immediately choose a temporary talent selected from a pool of legal & compliance experts (580+ professionals). Simply ask for the required skill set and attitude to get the work done.
A temporary specialist can instantly staff high-level projects, resourcing gaps (e.g. parental leave or awaiting new hire) and workflow spikes (regulatory event, litigation, corporate restructuring or due diligence). In contrast to a secondee of a traditional law firm, a temporary specialist offers in-house orientation and produces bespoke deliverables. This further offers the advantage to be generally allocated to the variable cost rather than on the (fixed) FTE budget.
