Legal Support For In-House Legal Teams.
Deliver quality legal work at pace
Your legal team prides itself on providing a consistently high level of service. To maintain this consistency, there are times you need interim legal support – to cover a person’s absence or work on a specific project.
Whether you need a lawyer for a project, support for days or weeks, or on-demand resources, we can meet your needs quickly, providing legal support you can trust. With no long-term obligations, control remains with you, while onboarding and administration are handled by us.
Working with Obelisk helps you focus on the work that matters to deliver strategic impact and safeguard your organisation. Plus, you’re championing flexible working and helping us keep great talent in the industry.
