5 years of Re:link

Re:link turns 5 this year and we’ve been reflecting on the amazing journey we’ve been on so far.

We’re delighted with how we have been able to deliver exceptional service to our clients and, simultaneously, create a professional offering that adds real value to our Re:link consultants. We’re so grateful for the support we’ve had along the way from our brilliant clients, talented lawyers, and supportive Linklaters colleagues.

Reflecting on Re:link’s evolution, our Head of Re:link, Martin Laing, had this to say:I’m incredibly proud of the impact and growth that Re:link has achieved in 5 years. We’re delivering on our promise to deliver smart resourcing solutions to Linklaters clients. What makes Re:link stand out is how closely we work with Linklaters partners to equip our clients with the exceptional talent that they need. We’ve built a platform of wonderfully talented consultants who love the flexibility and opportunities that Re:link provides.

Through Re:link, we provide clients with another tool to drive real efficiency in their legal operations. Vinay Samani, our Linklaters Partner Champion, commented: “We've got delighted clients- really, really happy clients because of the quality of the lawyers that we have on our bench.”

It’s not just our clients who praise Re:link. We’re also proud that over the past 5 years we’ve delivered exceptional professional opportunities for our Re:link consultants, providing them with access to high-calibre assignments whilst allowing them to maintain more control and flexibility over their careers. Re:link consultant Liz Mckeown, says;I love the flexibility that working as a Re:link consultant offers – in between contracts I have had time to focus on passion projects outside of work”. This sentiment is echoed by Gabrielle Holgate, another Re:link consultant, who told us; I’m absolutely loving the freedom and flexibility. I still get fantastic quality work, which stretches me and makes me feel proud of what I do, but I’m also able to pick up the kids from school every day and give them attention.

Offering agility and flexibility to both our clients and consultants has always been a foundational building block of the Re:link model. As Martin Laing, puts it; We are just simply not going to go back to the old way of doing things…we are so confident in our model.

To this next 5 and beyond!
