Freelance Commercial, IP and IT Solicitors

Working from home

Businesses are facing new challenges in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and circumstances are changing rapidly, however we are continuing to grow our team at Harper James Solicitors. 

Harper James is a law firm with a difference. Our business model has been designed with remote working at its centre. Our solicitors work from home as a matter of course, servicing clients with the best tools and technology we have at our disposal. This has allowed our team to continue to provide our clients with cost effective business legal services throughout this pandemic.

We are at the forefront of innovation in the legal services sector, having adopted a unique model that allows us to provide a flexible and easily accessible legal service to our clients (which range from innovative VC backed start-ups to huge multinationals).

To facilitate and support our ambitious plans, we are looking for Commercial and IT/IP Solicitors (of at least 10 years PQE) to join our team and work on a freelance and flexible basis from home.

If you have experienced the benefits of remote working for the first time as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and would like to continue to work with greater freedom and flexibility, or you are already working as a consultant lawyer and looking for a consistent pipeline of work we would like to discuss the possibility of joining our team.
