The legal area in a large Commonwealth Department was short staffed, placing team members under pressure leading to longer hours and more stress. They wanted someone with extensive Commonwealth experience who could ‘hit the ground running’ and fit in with the existing team.
We got a proposal to the client pronto, including scope, a suggested secondee and pricing. We knew that one of our senior lawyers, with over eight years in-house legal experience at director level, would be perfect. He started within a week.
Our client was happy, and our lawyer loved the work. His secondment was extended and he’s helped the legal team through a busy period. He worked with several areas of the legal team, helping share his experience and expertise. The client has been singing his praises.
