Empowering legal & compliance departments to disrupt the status quo with our highly talented and experienced specialists.

Legal &
Compliance
Workforce

As a company

When it counts. Immediately choose a temporary talent selected from a pool of legal & compliance experts (around 200 professionals). Simply ask for the required skill set and attitude to get the work done.

A temporary specialist can instantly staff high-level projects, resourcing gaps (e.g. parental leave, awaiting new hire) and workflow spikes (regulatory or litigation event, corporate restructuring, due diligence). In contrast to a secondee of a traditional law firm, a temporary specialist offers in-house orientation and produces bespoke deliverables. He further offers the advantage to be generally allocated to the variable cost rather than on the (fixed) FTE budget.

Indicative cost per day for a temporary specialist:

Paralegal | Reviewer
450 - 600
Junior
600 - 850
Mid
800 - 1'150
Senior
1'100 - 1'650

Note: all prices in CHF excl. VAT
