Khaitan & Co’s Lexflex is a platform that provides top-tier talent that gives legal professionals more control and more flexibility. We created this platform for experienced and motivated professionals who want the flexibility to pursue law and still have the flexibility to determine their schedule. LexFlex offers a unique range of opportunities, including working for certain hours in a day, working on specific days, period-based engagements and project-based engagements. This platform is open for professionals who are practicing law or working in the areas of Legaltech, digital tech or knowledge management.
The objective is to create an opportunity for highly qualified professionals to engage with Khaitan & Co on a consultancy basis and work on a wide range of exciting projects.
What brings this move?
To keep up with the evolving demands of the legal profession, Khaitan & Co is pleased to launch Lexflex. Discovering a flexible lifestyle while practicing law is an ongoing journey and we, at Khaitan & Co, believe that it is a #MatterOfChoice.
There has always been a pool of experienced professionals who prefer to freelance, and the pandemic has expanded that pool considerably. Khaitan & Co has designed Lexflex to tap into this diverse pool of talent. Professionals who may have two years PQE to retired / senior professionals who may be looking for part time arrangements can apply to Lexflex and use their expertise in a way that benefits them, Khaitan & Co and our clients.

What are benefits accorded to these Lawyers?
