Why Join LOD?

People come to us for a whole range of reasons – they might be looking for time for their interests, for work alongside other projects, or just want a change. What they all have in common is a desire for high quality work coupled with a degree of control that traditional models can’t offer, but LOD can.

All of our LODs have worked at top tier firms or as part of major in-house teams. We only accept a small percentage of applications as we choose lawyers who are not only technically excellent, but who can work seamlessly with our client’s teams. This ensures we can offer our lawyers consistently high-quality assignments.

We can offer:

  • Varied, challenging, career-enhancing work with market leading brands (from Google to Barclays, and Amex to adidas) as well as exciting growth companies.
  • Flexibility and autonomy: you can work anything from full-time on site with a client to a few hours each week from home.
  • Training and know-how, as well as support from our dedicated HQ Team.
  • A variety of flexible models that include working at the client’s offices or remotely.
