PwC Eyes Global Expansion of Its Flexible Lawyering Service


PwC, which has aggressively pushed its way into the legal services industry, plans to expand its Flexible Legal Resources offering into global markets.

The new, on-demand lawyering service that was launched in the U.K. four months ago, has met with great success, according to Peter Workman, managing director of Flexible Legal Resources (FLR). It received 500 applications within 14 days and now boasts a pool of more than 1,000 contractors, he said.

That success has led to the model being taken up at PwC’s Swiss offices, and its Asia network is considering adopting it as well, he said.
