We are the fixed price legal business changing the way organisations use, measure and buy legal services.
 
Following a number of major contract wins we’re looking to recruit at least 10 commercial paralegals with great potential to develop their legal careers.

We’re looking for people with strong technical ability, a commitment to putting the customer first and preferably with some relevant in-house or private practice work experience.
