For Consultant Lawyers
FinLaw works with lawyers who want to challenge the way in which legal services are traditionally delivered. Our panel of lawyers are experienced financial services lawyers who want to work flexibly, and who, with us, want to deliver client outcomes and value rather than billable targets. Our lawyers are able to work in flexible ways – full-time, part-time or project based – depending on their career and lifestyle choices. This means that they regain control of their time.
FinLaw works with market leading financial services organisations and, as a result, our lawyers are given the opportunity to work with clients who are leaders in the industry. You will still work with the best clients, just in a way that better suits you both.
