Contract lawyers go global as Israeli service set up
A contract lawyer service, LawFlex, has been set up in Israel, meaning that temporary lawyers are now available in large parts of the globe - the US, Europe and Asia, in particular - as an alternative to hiring a law firm in the traditional way.
The Israeli service has been formed by a former associate of Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, Jackie Donner, and a marketer, Zohar Fisher. The two say that they have visited 40 law firms to explain the service.
Allen & Overy has been a leader with its Peerpoint service. Berwin Leighton Paisner and DLA Piper are also active. Rajah & Tann has recently made an announcement about its service in Asia. Source: The Lawyer
