HOW FLEX ENGAGEMENTS WORK
This benefits our clients in several ways:
- Our team is better equipped to understand your legal needs than the typical staffing agency “sales” person or recruiter.
- We carefully vet potential FLEX attorneys. Because we are a team of lawyers, we can evaluate both our candidates’ soft skills and substantive legal skills. We test each attorney’s practical knowledge and negotiation style, so you can feel confident about the quality of your FLEX attorney and the work-style match.
- FLEX attorneys can access Fenwick-created forms and knowledge management databases on your behalf at no cost.
- If you’re also a firm client, FLEX attorneys can easily collaborate with your Fenwick team, as needed.
ABOUT FLEX ATTORNEYS
We can provide FLEX attorneys at whatever level of experience makes sense for your particular needs. Our most junior attorneys generally have at least five years of experience in one or more substantive legal areas, both in-house and with large law firms. Our most experienced attorneys bring significant general counsel-level experience and are capable of handling the entire legal function for a small-to-midsize company.
We also ask all FLEX attorney candidates to complete a written skills exercise to help us understand their substantive legal knowledge. Our internal team managers – all of whom are attorneys – also go through the exercise verbally with the candidate, to better appreciate the candidate’s advising style and approach to negotiation. We use the results of this evaluation when matching FLEX attorneys with our clients.
