Your guide to accessing high-calibre lawyers to support your business needs.

Flex for Legal is KPMG's legal and legal operations resourcing platform, offering flexible and cost-effective solutions to clients to overcome capacity and expertise challenges. We offer access to a pool of on-demand lawyers and legal operations professionals for short to long term projects.

Did you know that 20% of work going to law firms is primarily due to lack of capacity in the inhouse team, rather than legal expertise?

By increasing your legal inhouse team's capacity at short notice, we can help you save money by retaining work which would otherwise be outsourced.

Build the career in law that you want. Gain a breadth of experience that may not be gained working in traditional models.

As an extension of KPMG Law, you will benefit from being part of our collaborative network and work with some of our best clients. Work how, when, where, and for as long as you want, whilst accelerating your career.

We would like to hear from legal professionals from in-house or private practice backgrounds and from a broad range of industries, sectors and practice areas to help you achieve personal and professional success.

Contact us now to explore exciting new career opportunities.
