Consultant feedback

“The Simmons & Simmons Adaptive programme is, in a word, excellent. The ability to work for top tier entities on a flexible basis while being fully supported by top tier lawyers is something few consultant contracting programs can offer. Adaptive has opened doors for new long term opportunities which I could never have arranged on my own. Adaptive is not just a contracting solution, it’s a career path for city trained lawyers looking to continue with quality work without having to set up their own legal practice. I just love it.”

“I decided I wanted to work as a legal consultant to have more freedom, diversity on the projects/work I do, and to be able to take on various projects at the same time and manage my own time. The setting up a limited company is a very simple and straightforward process which literally takes 15 minutes. My experience so far using Simmons & Simmons Adaptive has been pleasant. The interview process was relatively smooth and quick and people have been flexible and understanding with respect to other projects I have on the side.”
