In the FLEX model, you set the parameters of the types of engagements you would like – whether it’s part-time, full-time, onsite, remote, with a certain commute radius, types of companies, etc. We present those opportunities to you, and then you tell us whether you want to be considered for the role.

Our Internal Team
Our team members are nearly all attorneys who understand your perspective and want to help to achieve your career goals.
We offer remote, onsite, full-time, part-time and a variety of other flexible workstyles to cater to your professional needs.
Who is best suited to join FLEX?
Our attorneys have great legal experience, solid business acumen and excellent people skills. Ideal FLEX attorneys have a combination of strong credentials and both law firm and in-house experience. We find that our lawyers generally have three different goals when they join FLEX:
- Attorneys who want a more flexible lifestyle and the ability to adjust their work commitments in response to their outside pursuits
- Attorneys who are in a career transition temporarily and are seeking new opportunities
- Attorneys in solo practice who are looking for additional work to augment their practice
What our attorneys are saying
“I love working through FLEX because the toughest part about running my own practice and consulting/contracting on my own is the administrative work. I get to work with really cutting edge clients through FLEX and focus solely on the substantive work.”
“Being part of FLEX allows me to indulge my passion for travel. I spend the bulk of the year on FLEX engagements and then take a month or two off at a time for incredible trips and really unplug. I was never able to do that at a firm or in-house. I feel like I’m able to work on my own terms and still move my legal career forward.”
“Working with FLEX helped me to transition from a more traditional Fortune 500 company to a unicorn startup. When my former employer downsized the legal department after a merger, I joined FLEX and got engagements with some really exciting tech companies. I was then able to use that experience to get a great full-time role.”
