Condor Resourcing provides lawyers with an alternative way of working. Whether you are a lawyer looking for remote, flexible legal work that fits around your existing lifestyle and commitments, seeking a ‘returnship’ after a career break or relocation out of the City, or simply seek a change of pace, we have a place for you. The Condor Resourcing model for lawyers offers flexible legal employment either within Fieldfisher LLP or with our clients.
We take pride not only in the people we have, but the community we are building amongst our lawyers. Rather than focusing on simply placing our lawyers on engagements, we build a collegiate and caring approach to ensure every lawyer we work with feels a part of the wider Condor team. In addition, the engagements our consultants work on are as varied and diverse as our community and provide both ongoing challenges and opportunities for training and self-development.
One of the most important challenges that any firm faces is identifying, recruiting and retaining talented individuals. This is often more challenging where the need for interim resources arises. Since 2019, over 40% of UK corporates have sourced temporary legal resources from ALS providers like Condor Resourcing to cover long-term absences, resource large projects, or manage unanticipated spikes in workload.
Condor Resourcing, Fieldfisher’s Legal Resourcing platform, differentiates ourselves by working with client relationship partners to ensure that we fully understand our clients’ needs, and to validate candidates that we put forward to clients for consideration.
With a team of experienced recruiters and a sizable pool of candidates, Condor Resourcing has helped Fieldfisher’s clients effectively manage their resourcing challenges for over five years. Finding the right resource for your team, with the skills and knowledge you need, at an appropriate price, is what we pride ourselves on.
How We Can Help
Condor is an alternative legal solutions (ALS) provider backed by quality assurance from Fieldfisher lawyers. Condor Resourcing is the ‘people’ resource of the Condor ALS suite of solutions.
We address a need when organisations find their in-house legal resources stretched, or there is a need for a lawyer with specific technical skills for a task or project. We are able to quickly parachute in the right legal talent your organisation needs to fill the gap.
We maintain a valuable contact book of highly skilled and experienced lawyers for project work that are quality checked and contract at a lower price point than a Fieldfisher secondee, saving clients time and money at times that are critical to their business.
We use our contact book of skilled lawyers to provide clients with the additional legal resource when they it need instead of them entering into the time and cost of instructing a law firm.
Whether additional resources are needed for a few days, a few weeks or a few months, Condor Resourcing offers an agile and high calibre resource solution.
Condor Resourcing lawyers can work remotely or onsite to provide a level of service you expect from a City law firm, at a significantly lower cost.
Our pool of legal experts
Our pool of legal resources range in experience from newly qualified to General Counsel level, and from junior paralegals to security-screened experienced reviewers.
Each has a different background ensuring no matter what the requirement of the engagement, Condor Resourcing has a professional who can cover it.
All our Condor Resourcing lawyers are fully supported by Fieldfisher, meaning they are covered by Fieldfisher’s professional indemnity insurance; have access to Fieldfisher resources and receive access to ongoing training and development.
The Value We Add
Condor’s scalable, flexible and cost-effective model enables us to deliver an efficient outcome for our clients whenever they need it.
We can scale up to meet larger requests so a client can deal with potentially disruptive requests without having to constantly redirect already scarce internal legal resources.
We provide a customised service through the most relevant combination of resources to get the solution you need.
