FLEX by Fenwick provides in-house counsel on demand for high growth companies. One of the key strengths of our internal team is that we are almost all former practicing attorneys.
Earlier this month, I was at a large gathering of lawyers when the conversation turned to New Year’s resolutions. I was pleasantly surprised by how many mentioned that their resolution (beyond the typical weight loss one!) for 2017 was to do more pro bono work. In fact, several of them were intrigued by the FLEX by Fenwick model specifically because they would ideally like to serve private sector clients roughly 75% of the time and then be able to devote the rest of their time and energies to causes they are passionate about.
Since joining FLEX by Fenwick’s internal team to lead employer branding and marketing, I’ve received many questions from attorneys about how practicing with FLEX differs from participating in a flexible work arrangement program at a traditional law firm. So, I thought I’d share my answer here as the subject of my first blog post.
