Congratulations! You’ve made the leap from working in a law firm or a corporate law department to launching your own solo practice. You have the motivation, you have the credentials, you have the skills. Now all you need are the clients.
START OFF ON THE RIGHT FOOT
Building a practice can be challenging, as most newly-minted solo practitioners do not start with a book of business. Working as a temporary attorney on a part-time or project basis provides an income source during the early days of your solo practice, while providing the flexibility to build your own client base.
SMOOTH OUT THE UPS AND DOWNS
Even an established solo practice might experience some lulls. A temporary attorney role keeps income flowing during those slow times. When work picks up again, you can always pick and choose the temporary opportunities you pursue.
MANAGE YOUR WORKLOAD
Many of Assigned Counsel’s temporary opportunities afford flexible work situations, enabling you to devote time to your own practice. Increasingly, clients are comfortable with the temporary attorney working remotely for all or part of the engagement. Clients have also hired temporary attorneys with in-demand skill sets to handle projects on an as-needed basis.
LEVERAGE YOUR SKILL SET
Assigned Counsel has placed solo practitioners on temporary assignments in both law departments and law firms. Our clients value attorneys with experience in commercial transactions, real estate, employment law and compliance, as well as litigation specialties.
