The legal landscape has changed over recent years with interim work becoming a more popular choice for an ever increasing number of legal professionals.

Taylor Root works with most of the large international law firms, smaller and niche practices in London and a number of UK based regional firms, as well as a large proportion of the major financial institutions, FTSE 250 and smaller organisations across a range of sectors.

There are many reasons a business would hire an interim lawyer; it may be in response to an increase in workflow, cover for someone on maternity leave or long-term sickness, to temporarily acquire a lawyer with specialist knowledge or to assist on short term projects. Whatever the scenario, we are able to provide our clients with a detailed overview of costs and benefits associated with such hires.

Interim work offers an exciting and challenging alternative directions in which to take your career, offering the opportunity to step away from the constraints of permanent employment and exert more control over your career and life outside work. Enjoying involvement in a wide variety of high quality projects across a range of sectors, you are guaranteed far greater autonomy and flexibility than a traditional job typically offers. If you are looking for permanent employment, keeping your skills up to date in an interim role will make you more appealing to prospective employers.
