How to make the most of experienced interim lawyers

A thorough induction, including background reading, will save you time in the long run.

You’ll discover that senior interim lawyers can quickly understand complex challenges and make time-sensitive legal decisions that align with your broader business strategy.

If you’re the main point of contact, you’ll need to be clear on expectations, including agreed hours, and check in to see how they’re going.

You will also need to introduce the interim lawyer to your team and all stakeholders on day one.

When your team is stressed, you can’t underestimate the benefits of engaging a high quality, on-demand lawyer — without the financial implications of long-term commitment. They’ll act as an invaluable extension of your team and a point of contact for junior team members, alleviating pressure on the GC.

Experience is priceless, and the only source of knowledge (to paraphase Albert Einstein). If you’re interested in benefiting from rich, commercial knowledge from an astute secondee, feel free to get in touch.
