CondorFlight is the ‘people powered’ division of our alternative legal solutions platform bringing our clients together with the skilled lawyers they need without the time and cost of instructing a law firm.

As a fully flexible legal service, clients benefit from being able to access CondorFlight lawyers by the hour or by the day to achieve contingent resources for large-scale projects or as interim legal support. CondorFlight also benefits lawyers who are looking for agile and remote working, where and when it suits them.

See examples below on how CondorFlight can help you:

The legal department of a Global Investment Bank has to review a range of trading platform documents for MIFID II compliance purposes against a tight deadline (6 weeks). Normally the work would be done by senior lawyers in-house. Due to the number of platforms and the value the client is reluctant to use a law firm.

 

Solution: We provide access to two Senior Lawyers to support the bank’s internal legal team that can each talk on a number of these reviews per week over the delivery period at times to suit our lawyers. Although our Senior Lawyers both work remotely from the client, they work together on the reviews to share knowledge and ensure consistency of output.

The client prefers to pay an amount per completed review. The cost to the client is half the fee that the law firm quoted for the same job and it was delivered on time.

An investment bank client needs a team of five paralegals to complete a project on-site starting in three days.

Solution: We are able to quickly provide 5 appropriately skilled and screened paralegals (approved by the client) to work for 3-4 months of this project, giving the client the flexibility to resource up or down after 3 months.

An asset manager within a small legal department required sporadic and fluctuating legal support in different specialist areas that it did not have.

 

Solution: We establish an informal “panel” of Senior Lawyers providing flexible resource that the client can access during demand spikes. It was important to the client that they have continuity of a lawyer, even though their need is sporadic. Understanding the clients’ business is an important consideration in our advice. Our Senior Lawyers are always willing to attend the client’s office to put names to faces and understand more about the business.

The client is happy to pay a variable rate based on usage of our Senior Lawyers. It was delighted to be paying less than a half of the rate it had been paying to its law firm for the same level of lawyer.

A start up investment fund platform needs help with managing legal counsel and transaction management during the platform’s build phase. The client knows that there will be very busy, as well as quiet phases, when there won’t be much for lawyers to be doing (other than being on stand-by).

 

Solution: We find them a Senior Lawyers with both “GC” and specialist experience who would work remotely and, when needed, on site (possibly on short notice), to provide consistent responsive support as needed.
