Love law but need more control? There is another way.

As one of our LOD lawyers, Emma, an ex-City law firm lawyer with LOD assignments at a major broadcaster and a global credit card company, says:I can enjoy high quality work in a fast-paced, stimulating environment but on my own terms. I couldn't be happier!"

Whether you are looking for change, your first assignment in-house or work alongside other projects, that’s all fine with us. If you are an excellent lawyer with passion for what you do and a desire to work differently, we’d love to hear from you. Here’s why we’d like you to send us your CV:

With LOD you can enjoy high quality work without sacrificing career or lifestyle

You can work on a freelance basis across a range of industries under the LOD brand. Working for our clients, (who range from international banks, top tier law firms and retail giants, through to broadcasters, automotive firms and cutting edge technology providers), you can enjoy interesting, quality assignments but with greater freedom.

We are by lawyers, for lawyers

We’re a Berwin Leighton Paisner company, so as an LOD lawyer you have the backing of a major international law firm and access to BLP know-how and training. In addition you will have the support of the LOD HQ team and network of LOD lawyers to tap into for advice.

Our founders and most of our HQ team are lawyers or law graduates, so we understand the challenges facing our clients as well as the nuance associated with matching lawyers to assignments.

All of our LOD lawyers are talented, experienced lawyers who have worked at top tier firms or as part of major in-house legal teams. We only accept a small percentage of applications as we choose lawyers who are not only technically excellent but who can work seamlessly with our clients’ teams.

This also ensures we can offer our lawyers consistently high quality assignments.

We have a working model to suit you

We have a variety of flexible models that include working at a client’s offices or remotely. We are looking for talented lawyers in the following areas:

  • commercial
  • corporate
  • real estate
  • employment
  • financial services

About LOD

We enable in-house counsel and law firms to flex the size and capability of their teams just when they need to. Our high quality, freelance lawyers reduce the usual overhead of engaging lawyers, whether they are working on a contract basis or simply when needed on a project.
