Lawyer On Demand.
The right legal expert, when you need them
Need cover for sick or parental leave? Facing peaks in your workload due to project work? Or could you use an extra pair of hands while you restructure after an acquisition? We can provide you with lawyers on demand who understand your commercial goals.
Obelisk ensures that we provide a highly skilled legal professional every time. Typically City-firm trained and selected for their in-house experience, our consultants can work onsite or remotely – or both.
Plus, we know our consultants; we check their background, assess their experience, and understand their areas of interest. Once we’ve matched you with the right lawyer, all you need to do is set them to work.
