About Us

We partner with our clients and legal professionals, finding new ways to boost the value they deliver

What makes us special?

We play the long game

We’re known for being reliable, trustworthy and easy to work with. Long-term relationships matter more than short-term gain.

We have a unique global community

With 4500 LOD experts in 20+ countries, we have the lowdown on your local market and the global in-house industry

If our people aren’t happy, we’re not happy

We get a kick out of helping our clients, our legal professionals and HQ team love what they do. We’re fun to work with and make work fun!

We know every legal team is a unicorn

With our in-house experience, we get the unique quirks of your team and business. Our solutions are always tailored, never cookie-cutter.

We make things easy

We’re not Big Law or Big 4. We’re no-fuss, entrepreneurial and straight-talking (and hate red tape). We make a difference from day one.

We’re inclusive and diverse

We make sure the best jobs are open to everyone, regardless of gender, race, social capital, disability, or sexual orientation.
