Peerpoint business launched by Allen & Overy allows lawyers to work flexibly for the firm
Allen & Overy has announced the launch of Peerpoint, a business that is hoped to provide a panel of experienced, high-calibre lawyers available to work flexibly for Allen & Overy on a contract basis.
The firm said that Peerpoint will allow Allen & Overy to increase its permanent workforce at times of high demand or when there is a need for particular specialist skills, while offering Peerpoint lawyers greater choice over when, where and how they work and the type of work they do.
Initially, Peerpoint will contract Allen & Overy alumni, but in time, and as demand grows, Peerpoint will look to engage high-quality lawyers from other top-tier firms who are seeking greater flexibility.
While the launch focuses on London, Peerpoint will be expanding internationally to provide similar support to other Allen & Overy offices where there is demand.
