Consultancy with Duncan Lewis allows lawyers the flexibility to have a better work life balance and the ability to essentially be their own boss. We believe that lawyers should be left to do what they do best without the burden of running a business. We offer consultancy opportunities in a significant number of our areas of practice and we currently work with approximately 100 consultants nationwide.
The firm’s consultancy model allows lawyers the freedom to develop their own professional network, to have control over the mix of work undertaken and the luxury to choose their own hours. Benefiting from the company’s paperless environment, our remote working procedures and full access to our online Case Management System which maintains client electronic files, lawyers are also granted the ability to work from home and meet with their clients at any of our offices across the country.
