Freedom to work on your terms

Why Join LOD?

People come to us for a whole range of reasons – they might be looking for time for their interests, for work alongside other projects, or just want a change. What they all have in common is a desire for high quality work coupled with a degree of control that traditional models can’t offer, but LOD can.

All of our LODs have worked at top tier firms or as part of major in-house teams. We only accept a small percentage of applications as we choose lawyers who are not only technically excellent, but who can work seamlessly with our client’s teams. This ensures we can offer our lawyers consistently high-quality assignments.

We can offer:

  • Varied, challenging, career-enhancing work with market leading brands (from Google to Barclays, and Amex to adidas) as well as exciting growth companies.
  • Flexibility and autonomy: you can work anything from full-time on site with a client to a few hours each week from home.
  • Training and know-how, as well as support from our dedicated HQ Team.
  • A variety of flexible models that include working at the client’s offices or remotely.

 

ROLE SUMMARY: ATTORNEY (USA)

We're looking for commercial lawyers based in the USA to support a range of in-house legal teams on a broad variety of in-house legal work. You’ll be working with renowned corporate legal departments with the full support of our HQ team.

You will be working on a broad range of commercial matters, including:

  • Broad commercial contracts across a number of business areas that could include Procurement, Technology, Infrastructure and more broadly, business as usual contracts.
  • Supporting in-house teams on defined and interesting projects relating to new business lines and services and their broader expansion.

We are looking for a range of experience levels and backgrounds in a broad range of sectors. The clients we work with are often internationally renowned and the quality of work is interesting and engaging offering you autonomy, leadership and flexibility.

LOD BACKGROUND

Who are the LOD group?

LOD was set up 15 years ago to make the lives of those working in the legal industry better and that is still at the centre of everything we do today. We match people with companies who need legal expertise in-house, giving them an alternative way of working other than in big law firms. They get more flexibility, more interesting opportunities, and more fulfilling work. The companies get access to cream of the crop in a way that suits them; they can choose from individuals that sit within their business, ad hoc advisory support, or legal teams who can be parachuted in. 

SYKE was founded in 2016 to help legal teams choose, buy, and implement legal tech. With a mixture of consultation and hands-on delivery, we help in-house legal teams modernise through process improvements and legal tech solutions. We work with the world’s leading providers of legal tech so always recommend tech agnostic answers to legal team issues. 

In 2021, LOD partnered with SYKE, forming the LOD Group. Together we offer end-to-end legal services, from flexible resourcing through to legal tech. We are global market-leaders with a unique offering, helping legal teams work more efficiently and deliver better value every day.  

We work with smart, motivated individuals who are very down to earth, willing to get their hands dirty, and extremely supportive of each other. As you’d expect, flexibility is baked into everything we do so everyone is treated like a grown up. 

 

YOUR SKILLS, QUALIFICATIONS AND APPROACH

  • Confident providing accurate support in an often fast paced environment
  • Pro-active approach and can-do attitude
  • Can quickly gain credibility and respect from our clients
  • Emotional intelligence to assess any situation and confidence to use initiative
  • Strong communication skills to ensure team members understand the task at hand and client expectations are managed
  • Willingness to take ownership and see a task and project through from start to completion
  • Innovative and motivated responses to problem-solving, taking ownership when they arise
