Why Use FLEX?

FLEX provides the highest quality interim in-house counsel.

FLEX was founded by one of the leading firms representing high growth companies in response to clients’ needs for customized, cost-effective in-house assistance. Because the purpose of FLEX is to enhance client service, and not solely focused on revenue generation, our team isn’t commission-based and will never try to sell you services you don’t need. Our team consults with you to understand your company’s unique needs and provide the right attorney fit. Our plans are flexible and customizable – whether you need sporadic help over the course of a quarter, part-time assistance, or a full time support.

Some clients only need in-house support for a short period of time and other clients work with our attorneys on engagements for a year or more. Working with FLEX, you can have confidence in the quality of our lawyers, because we are backed by Fenwick – the only such service provided by an AmLaw 100 firm. The attorneys on our bench have excellent credentials, are from top law schools and highly respected law firms, with most also having significant in-house experience. In addition to the interviews and reference checks you would expect, we test applicants to ascertain both their substantive knowledge and their advising style. We accept less than 7% of attorneys that apply.

While all FLEX clients benefit from high quality, cost effective rates and predictable legal bills, those that are Fenwick clients also have the advantage of FLEX services being well integrated with the work Fenwick is handling.
