Why work in Deloitte Legal?

The way lawyers advise their clients has remained largely unchanged for decades. But now the legal world is changing, and so are we. As technology continues to transform the nature of legal work, new opportunities are being created every day, which leads to a drive for organisations to evolve and adapt to do more.

We believe this requires a new approach to the delivery of legal services. An approach that goes beyond advice, to offer real solutions with a real impact. This means that at Deloitte Legal you’ll work together with market-leading lawyers, consultants and technology experts to find new ways of overcoming the legal challenges of today and tomorrow.

Legal Managed Services

Legal teams are becoming ever more sophisticated, performing under increased board-level scrutiny on legal spend whilst providing strategic advice on an increasingly complex, global and ever-changing regulatory environment. Meanwhile, the sheer volume of contracts under negotiation, requiring review and remediation can make it hard to focus the in house teams legal advice where most required. At Deloitte Legal Managed Services we provide specialist, regulated lawyers who become an intrinsic part of the in house team, working alongside them in the review, remediation and negotiation of contracts.

Deloitte Legal is developing the tools to help legal business during this transformative time.
