SECONDMENTS

Scale your legal team, on-demand.

Extend your in-house capacity with expert professionals.

Instantly fill talent gaps without hiring or maintaining additional staff.

laughing-people

Talent gaps can cripple even the best teams.

Capacity issues breed a culture of perpetual firefighting — where urgent replaces important, and where survival drowns out strategy.

UNPLANNED VACANCIES

Long personal leaves or sudden departures can leave critical work hanging in the balance.

RECRUITMENT FREEZES

Lack of headcount approvals can lead to unmanageable workloads, leaving teams burnt out.

SPECIALISED NEEDS

Dedicated projects with unique needs can make it difficult to find the right expertise at the right time.

NEED FOR OVERSIGHT

Outsourcing is simply off the table for situations that require close supervision and internal alignment.

There’s a better way to grow.

Our secondment solutions combine top-tier legal expertise with the cohesion of an in-house team, helping you scale while remaining flexible.

The secondment process

Integrating secondees into your team starts with a clear and structured approach.

Understanding your needs

We start by understanding your project needs to ensure we know exactly what you’re looking for.

Curating potential fits

We shortlist professionals from the Counselect Panel that best match your specific needs.

Selecting the right candidate

After further vetting, we handpick the best match for your criteria.

Orienting and onboarding

We orient the professional and ensure they are fully prepared to integrate into your team.

Managing logistics

We take care of the logistics — from compliance to payroll — so that you can focus on what matters.

Ensuring continuity

Our ongoing support includes integrating value-adds like legal tech and operations consulting.

A fully managed service.

Not just staffing — we offer a complete, end-to-end experience that takes care of everything from compensation to compliance.

EXPERT RECRUITERS

As market leaders, we have deep expertise in recruitment and a knack for finding the right talent.

STRONG TALENT POOL

The Counselect Panel has 1500+ legal professionals, each of whom have been properly vetted and oriented.

COMPLETE EXCLUSIVITY

Seconded professionals work exclusively with your organisation and do not take other engagements.

100% CONFIDENTIALITY

With strict confidentiality agreements in place, sensitive information is always protected.

ADMIN SERVICES

We manage all the administrative aspects such as attendance, invoicing, and compliances.

FEEDBACK CYCLES

We consistently take feedback about performance to ensure continuity and growth.

“As the legal industry has embraced flexi-work solutions in an environment where P&L pressure has ramped up, we’ve been in the thick of things.

You can count on us to understand what makes your business tick and then match you with carefully curated talent.”
