Distrupting the legal industry
Disrupt your market
how times have changed
But as we get used to the new work norm, what can we do to overcome the challenges of working away from the office, and how can law firms adapt for the long term to support a more flexible approach to work?
law is not a fair game
Why is More flexible working the future
Even before the enforced lockdown for Covid-19, flexible working was already on a sharp upwards trajectory, and in 2019, 54% of people had flexible work options; however, 68% or employees also wanted to work flexibly in a way that wasn’t yet available.
This is because flexible working doesn’t come in one single mould, and if you want to introduce flexible working for law firms, you will have to consider the different types.
According to GOV.uk, flexible working options include:
- Job sharing
- Working from home
- Part-time work
Part-time work and job shares are normally well-tapped and can be used as an opportunity to create skill differentiation if needed. However, working remotely seemed to be the last frontier of flexible work in law firms for some time, until now.

Why do law firms need to be more agile?
Technology is the simple answer. However, being one of the traditional sectors, it’s arguable that law firms have for too long been behind the technological curve.
The potential payoffs of flexible working are significant and have the potential to reshape the legal industry for the better. It’s possible to take the opportunity to forge a new way forward that is both technology-positive and allows easy, flexible working for law firms.
Unprecedented times cause unprecedented change, and flexible working for law firms is just one of the ways we can create a positive and lasting impact on the law sector during a time of challenge and uncertainty. The result will be that your law firm will be well equipped to weather future storms as well as being able to provide your team with the necessary support and resources to work flexibly and successfully.
