What we're about
This is a group designed specifically for freelance lawyers based in London.
The freelance legal community in London is growing by the day. More and more talented lawyers are looking for an alternative career path to the traditional private practice or in-house option. Freelancing is the answer! Imagine a life where you can still enjoy the strong earning potential you are used to, but working for half the hours (or even less!) from anywhere there is an internet connection. A ‘normal year’ could include a couple of 6 week long sabbaticals as standard.
The world of work is changing, and FAST! Though it can be a scary place. How do you become a freelance lawyer? What are the pitfalls? How do you find clients / employers? It can be lonely at times and we wanted to help change that, and to give people a platform through which they can grow and develop alongside likeminded, forward thinking lawyers based in London.
We will be holding regular meet ups to share ideas, network and reminisce about the old days back at the firm working 2000 billable hours a year. We will have guest speakers who have already made the freelancing jump and we will invite representatives from corporates and law firms to attend to give an insight into what they look for when hiring a freelance lawyer for a project.
We will also introduce our new platform which connects freelance lawyers and the businesses which need them.
We operate a strictly no tie policy at all of our events. Its 2018, the profession is moving on and we are at the forefront of the revolution! Let’s do this.
