Julie Yip

Singapore

Since becoming an LOD, Julie has enjoyed exploring different industries and work cultures – without having to commit to anything long term. Julie shares her experience of why she decided to work this way and the advice she’d give to others.

Francesco Lamanna

London

After working as an in-house lawyer with a specialism in competition and regulatory law, Francesco decided to review his career and work on a plan for the future. He was keen to explore something new, whilst still working within a commercial enterprise. Francesco shares how LOD has played an important part in his career development process, by providing him with some great opportunities to stretch himself and be challenged by new ideas.

Nathalia Trois Colognese

Caroline Walsh

LOD lawyer, Caroline, wanted to move out of London to be by the sea – without compromising on finding good quality work. LOD helped her to do just that, giving her the freedom to pursue her interest in yoga and get her very own puppy!

Career, Kids and California

London

LOD lawyer, Matt, wanted to get some experience in other sectors but needed to keep the flexibility his job gave him to spend time with his young family. Step in LOD and he found himself handing in his notice and not looking back. Now Matt has worked on three different assignments, whilst still spending time with his family as well as finding time to travel too! Read on to hear Matt’s story.

Melanie Ng

Hong Kong

Ask any one of LOD’s lawyers and consultants (more than 600 across our nine LOD offices) why they chose to work this way, and you will get a variety of responses.  However, one that comes up again and again is the fact that LOD lawyers and consultants have the freedom to concentrate and focus on the work they love, without the need to hit targets and the pressure of developing a pipeline.

Rather than tell you how great we think it is, we’ve asked some of our existing lawyers and consultants to give you their take on what that jump has meant for them. Read on to discover what it’s really like to be part of the award winning LOD team.
