Attorneys for Companies

Optimize your time and resources.

Latitude helps companies add experienced in-house counsel capacity without creating a permanent position or outsourcing in-house legal work to a law firm. Our attorneys have the level of skill, experience and judgment as would be expected in a permanent corporate counsel or law firm attorney, and the versatility to step into challenging environments and hit the ground running. To meet some of Latitude’s Attorneys, please visit our Attorneys page. Options include secondments (i.e., contract engagements), as well as permanent positions. In addition to full-time, on-site assignments, Latitude attorneys are available on a part-time, remote, flex-time, and advisory basis.
