Spoke is an online legal marketplace designed to find great flexible lawyers for particular projects. It connects lawyers with capacity directly with the teams that want to work with them. Created by the people that brought you Lawyers On Demand (LOD), it makes remote flexible lawyering efficient and easy but in a human way. It’s a response to how clients have told us they want to work and to the changes happening in the industry.

Your project manager will put together a list of great lawyers that can be made available to you via LOD, with day rates or fixed prices according to your request. Once you have chosen a lawyer for your job LOD will manage the appointment and billing process.
Lawyers on Spoke come from top universities, firms and companies and have passed our approval process. They include hundreds of tried and tested LOD lawyers and others contract lawyers working flexibly, as well as some of the best barristers, consultants and niche practitioners. Some run their own practices and others may mix law with other areas of business. Many simply just want to practice law more flexibly and autonomously.
