Flexible Legal Secondees

“Our company had the pleasure of working with Front Foot Law to source interim legal support and we were thoroughly impressed with their speed, level of professionalism and commitment to finding the right person for our team.

They took the time to understand our needs and provide us with a highly qualified senior in-house legal counsel. We recommend Front Foot Law to in-house teams seeking interim legal support.

Secondments for In-house Legal Professionals

The legal profession is changing – and nowhere is the shift more visible than in-house. As lawyers place increasing value on their freedom, flexibility, and independence, organisations are adapting their hiring practices to keep pace.

We work with experienced, Australian-based in-house lawyers and legal operations specialists who want to explore the benefits of short-term secondments without compromising on long-term professional support.

Partnering with in-house legal teams across various industries, we connect you with rewarding opportunities that match your skills, working preferences and career ambitions.

Discover supported autonomy

You gain access to a unique combination of autonomy and support as a secondee – the best of both worlds

Regain control
As a secondee, your independence is protected. Escape the constraints of long-term employment and take on only the work with organisations and industries that interests you, with the freedom to enjoy life outside the office more.

Independence made easy
Traditionally, the only alternative to long-term contracting has been to set up your own practice. Front Foot Law is a law firm – meaning lawyers have an employee practising certificate and don’t face the burden of setting up and managing your own incorporated legal practice.

Find your focus
Our user-friendly systems and resources take care of the administration, leaving you to concentrate on doing what you do best – legal work.


We know that, as a professional, your skills are in demand – and we think they should be rewarded
