  • This is not new - props to the PR team for dusting down an old idea and giving it a fresh sell.

  • How do clients feel about having temps working on matters they've instructed Freshfields on?
    Will the temps be charged out at a multiple of what they're paid?
    Why are these former Freshfields lawyers so readily available for such work? Presumably anyone who is any good is busily engaged elsewhere and not available for temporary back office work.

  • Billing clients the same amount for work done by temps isn't ideal (to put it mildly). These cost savings should be transferred to the client by way of lower rates.

    You must be really desperate to accept such a humiliating position...
