​The DLA Piper Flexible Lawyers service is our response to meeting the changing demands of the marketplace, which is increasingly seeing talented lawyers moving towards a more flexible way of working.

This offering ensures that our pool of alumni and friends remain connected while finding the right balance of life and law, enabling greater speed and flexibility in our service delivery to clients without compromising on quality.

For our clients it means that we retain strong links to talented lawyers who already know your business and the DLA Piper way of operating, to be able to seamlessly support on secondment requests or backfilling internally.

Why become a flexible lawyer?

As a DLA Piper Flexible Lawyer, you get a wealth of variety without sacrificing career continuity. You can work across a range of environments and industries, within the firm and in-house with our key clients. You will also have access to an additional range of opportunities through Lawyers on Demand's own network. There are opportunities to work both on-site or remotely, or a combination of both, to fit your preferences.

Unlike traditional independent contractors, you get all of the benefits of being supported by a leading international law firm, including access to knowledge and support throughout your placement.
