Flexibly access quality in-house lawyers from Australia's largest law firm

Flex your on-demand legal support

Access high calibre lawyers when you need them. Draw upon one lawyer or a team. Find subject matter experts or supplement a skills gap in your in-house team. No ask is too complex for us. Lawyers are matched by experience level, expertise, project duration, location (if relevant) and or preferred working style. We provide tailored solutions to fit your needs.


Boost capacity with high calibre lawyers

MinterEllison Flex lawyers are well known to us. Over 70% are lawyers drawn from our network of alumni, former clients, and partner referrals. Our talent pool includes former General Counsel, experienced in house and private practice lawyers as well as Company Secretaries and Compliance managers. Flex lawyers provide coverage when you need a subject matter expert, are restructuring, have a headcount shortage, when staff are on extended leave, or a capacity overload.

We can respond within 24 hours of receiving your brief. Flex lawyers are all taken through the same rigorous recruitment process used by MinterEllison for all our lawyers, with some additional requirements for in house roles.
