How much lead time do you need to provide an Axiom Global Australia lawyer?

We'll work with whatever lead time you have. We know the reality of commercial projects and deals. The more notice we have, the better we can ensure we have the right lawyer at the right time.

What is a secondee?

A secondee is a person who temporarily joins the team of an alternative organization to lend capacity, provide insight or gain experience, without becoming a permanent member of that organization.

What is a secondee lawyer?

A secondee lawyer is a lawyer who temporarily joins the in-house legal team of an organization to help with a specific project, provide specialty knowledge or to offer additional capacity. Traditionally those in private practice would become secondee lawyers to gain commercial experience early in their careers, however legal secondments are now available to lawyers during any stage of their career to gain more flexibility and to broaden their skillsets.  

Who is the "employer" of a secondee?

Typically, the employer remains responsible for compensating the seconded employee during the secondment. In the case of Axiom Global Australia, we remain the employer of the secondee lawyer for the duration of the engagement.
