We create positive impact in the legal profession
Obelisk Support has been pioneering flexible and remote working arrangements since 2010 – long before they were mainstream.
Founded to retain highly-skilled talent in the profession and support talented women lawyers who were finding it difficult to continue to work alongside their family responsibilities – today we deliver flexible legal services powered by a diverse community of all legal professionals who want to work differently.
We continue to champion new ways of work that open opportunities more fairly for everyone in the law. Through programmes like our Legal Returners’ Springboard and Women Who Will initiative, we drive positive action – helping keep exceptional talent in the industry, our clients deliver better outcomes and the legal sector better reflect the diverse community it serves.
Join in our mission to make the world of legal work more inclusive – one lawyer at a time.
