Benefits of hiring interim lawyers

Cost saving

Hiring contract and interim lawyers can help keep costs down. By only paying for the resource when it is needed, businesses can better control their spend.

Flexibility

Non-permanent hires can be utilised for fluctuations in work, whilst not being a permanent cost to the business. We work with clients who take on additional resource for periods varying from a few days to up to 24 months.

Maternity & paternity cover/long-term sickness

Interims allow for continuity in a role while the incumbent is on long-term leave, resulting in no loss of productivity or support to the business.

Headcount restrictions

Contractors can provide legal resource under legal spend instead of headcount spend – getting around permanent headcount sign-off issues.

Access to talent

The combination of exposure to varied work and personal flexibility has led to an ever increasing influx of top pedigree lawyers making a proactive decision to move into the interim market.
