Mov­ing with the times

NEXT (New Zealand) - - Success Story -

“To­day, busi­nesses are run­ning very lean and rely on ex­i­ble re­sourc­ing to help them dur­ing peak times and en­sure they pay only for what they need. It’s re­ferred to as a ‘gig economy’, and it works across a mul­ti­tude of elds. In­ter­na­tion­ally, it’s the fastest-grow­ing part of the le­gal mar­ket, and I be­lieved it would work here. In my last job as CEO for a le­gal pro­fes­sional body, lots of com­pa­nies asked me to help them nd lawyers on a ex­i­ble ba­sis and plenty of lawyers told me they wanted ex­i­ble work that tted around their other com­mit­ments. I wanted to cre­ate a business that gives op­por­tu­ni­ties to other lawyers, helps com­pa­nies to suc­ceed by hav­ing great lawyers work­ing inside them and lets me bal­ance my fam­ily and com­mu­nity com­mit­ments.”
