Free Range Lawyers is a collective of people who believe in the power of distributed and remote working to make lives and businesses better.

We connect freelance lawyers who work outside the office with legal service providers looking to flex their resource.

We harness the benefit of distributed working by:

law companies with freelance lawyers who want to work away from the office

to organisations on ways to maximise value from remote and distributed work

what matters through a serious commitment to transforming the way lawyers and law companies work.

We help legal service providers work moreproductively and lawyers livemore purposefully.

Our focused, evidence-based selection process ensures that our Free Range Lawyers not only have excellent legal skills but have the professional values and temperament suited to working on an untethered, self-employed basis.

When a law firm needs additional resource, we act quickly to find a match if we can, while ensuring we thoroughly understand their needs.

Our involvement doesn’t end there. We’re more than a matching service. We’re here every step of the way to make sure that our remote assignments work for everyone involved.

Free Range working benefits lawyers, law companies and those around them.

Remote working now a business continuity issue for law firms

“Stay away from the office” is not a remote work strategy, but COVID-19 has made it a business continuity issue for office-based law firms, according to Katherine Thomas of Free Range Lawyers and Emma Heuston of The Remote Expert.

Innovation How to do it – part 2.

In the second of a two part series on innovation, Katherine Thomas looks at which areas of your business might be ripe for innovation.

#ReflectthenElect: JFDI

There’s no substitute for ‘JFDI’. That’s my reflection on 2019. So here are the people who are JFDI-ing it and who, in turn, will leave the world a little better than they found it. They have all inspired me during this exhausting and exhilarating year.

Posting this pic of our social distancing in Perth to give you the opportunity to tell me not to be so smug when we're still distancing in Southern Hemisphere winter (no central heating/double glazing) and y'all up there in the north 'sphere have sun and warmth to cheer you up. https://t.co/csfrGzyfjo LawyerFreeRange photo

Wow! Asked to do webinar for legal knowledge assoc in UK on remote working, invitation sent out last night AU time....sold out by the time I woke up this morning. Clearly a huge and ongoing need for guidance and support beyond the multitude of written updates on 'going remote'.

And just to say this is about so much more than 'how to do remote working' - we basically covered "how we're running our firm in these strange times", including IT, culture, finances, comms..... the firms involved were keen 2 share cos this stuff is hard.....for all of us. https://t.co/zuJclIvIaC

"We should accept that work will be and feel different for a long time". How are law firms responding to the crisis? Shared with their okay, here's what we've discussed with firm leaders worldwide since offering free consults on remote wkg 10 days ago.

Legal peeps: here's a global compilation of co's offering free services to help legal providers at this time, from @bobambrogi. Our 45 min consult features (link to book a slot in the article) and many more eg @reeamos and @legaler. Great to see! https://t.co/7iWDrYtKhJ

Offered free 45 min consults to law firms last Thurs. Helped 9 firms so far; more booked next week. They tell me posts, papers and webinars = great but also useful to chat things through w/ an independent person. CEOs, MPs, COOs particularly valuing space to sense-check approach https://t.co/tgi6sVOJi4
