Championing an inclusive and ‘Human First’ approach to legal work

Remote legal consultant support that works for you

 

We are proud to look back at the progress we have made as champions of a flexible and remote legal consultant support for Legal Teams and our #HumanFirst approach to legal work that upholds equality and inclusion.

If you’re normal operations are disrupted, colleagues are our on leave or your organisation is going through transformation – we’re here to support you. Managing risk. Providing sound commercial legal advice. Reviewing contracts and agreements. These tasks are the lifeblood of your business. Obelisk Support takes the pressure off your core team and keeps your work flowing smoothly.

We also understand not everyone wants to work for one company as a full-time employee. Access interesting projects that make the most of your skills and experience. Benefit from professional development and career advice while working flexibly as a legal consultant. With Obelisk Support we help you pursue your professional goals.

We would not be where we are today without the support and shared values of our visionary clients and talented legal consultants.

Thank you as we continue this journey together.

Creating new ways of resourcing roles and supporting our legal consultant pool, so we can attract expert, highly-skilled talent.

We are proud to advocate for cultural change in the legal profession

We are actively working to build a future-facing profession that we can all be proud of. One way we do this is by encouraging open debate around cultural change in the legal profession, with publications like our Legal Reset report.

This brought together legal leaders to discuss the pervading culture in the legal profession and what needs to be done to bring about transformation, retain and attract future talent, and be more representative of the wider community our profession serves.

The Obelisk Support team are also regularly invited to speak on the topic at leading industry events, including this year’s London Law Expo, the Managing Partners Forum “Re-tuning your firm” event series and the Entrepreneurs Network “How to attract talent in a disrupted landscape” debate.
