Hook, line and scooter rides


Not wanting to leave an industry she loved, LOD lawyer Alison turned to LOD to find her a part-time role so she could spend more time with her family. Her first secondment has been going for a little over a year.  Here she tells her story.

Rolling with the changing times


LOD lawyer Sarah arrived in 1997 to the UK from New Zealand with a backpack, £2800 and 3 years PQE. Starting out in various temporary roles, she found a home at Linklaters for nearly 9 years. Fast forward 20 years, Sarah uses LOD to navigate the changing legal market and uses the flexibility to her advantage. Read on to find out more.

Running all over the world


LOD has placed lawyer Trevor Goh in top quality roles and diverse industries. The variation is attractive to him because of the ability to switch between industries, learn new things and new products.
