Benefits

Experienced lawyers who can hit the ground running

lawyerbank comprises a multi-disciplinary team of administrative, IP, ICT, corporate, commercial, finance, property, construction, regulatory, environment, HR/IR and litigation specialists enabling you to fill gaps in your practice as they arise.

lawyerbank lawyers are highly professional, easy going, service oriented and outcome driven. They are all quality vetted, have worked in  private practice and / or for reputable in-house government legal teams and most have at least 10 years’ legal experience .

lawyerbank lawyers are therefore not only able to hit the ground running when working with your team but will provide responsive legal advice and support in a manner that seamlessly integrates with your practice.

Flexibility and responsiveness to meet demand

We understand that the needs, and demands upon, an internal legal practice can change rapidly. lawyerbank was established to provide secondment services in a flexible and responsive manner to meet demand and maximise utility.

lawyerbank lawyers are available to assist either in-house or in a virtual capacity to work as part of your practice. This may include providing relief assistance with the business as usual workload, providing senior expertise for high profile and contentious matters and also providing mentoring, training and second-counselling of more junior lawyers if needed.

The duration and frequency of each secondment is at the discretion of the firm. At all times we will work with you to ensure the availability of secondees is reflective of your resourcing requirements, including where workloads intensify or diminish within the period of an engagement, so as to maximise value for money for your firm.

Cost Savings and Confidentiality

The lawyerbank model can produce significant cost savings for firms when compared to traditional recruitment. Our competitive rates mean firms can engage a lawyerbank lawyer and still enjoy a profit margin for their contributions on billable matters. It also enables firms to more proactively manage their employee cost base during periods of lower productivity, assisting to alleviate budget pressures.

We understand the importance of confidentiality when working within a commercial legal practice. Our lawyers are under strict obligations to keep all confidential information of both the law firm and its clients confidential at all times and this information is not shared with Davis Faulkner.
