A modern business model PROMOTING THE RETENTION OF WOMEN IN LEGAL PRACTICE
Because the market is stronger when everyone is in it. When women leave law, everybody loses. Having a robust set of opinions at any discussion makes for a stronger workforce. We want to ensure more women have access to the flexible roles that will allow them to stay in their chosen careers during phases of their lives that scaling back hours or working remotely is necessary.
We created The A.L.T. Group with that mission in mind--to form partnerships between freelance legal professionals looking to move beyond a traditional work model and law firms and legal departments in need of high-end legal talent.
Our model allows our clients to take full advantage of the talent and expertise of high-achieving lawyers who have left or wish to leave full-time practice for a variety of reasons and are looking to remain or re-enter the work force with autonomy and flexibility. Our legal professionals enjoy the flexibility of a project-based work life, making it possible for them to stay engaged in legal practice under circumstances that best suit their lifestyles.
We provide our clients an economical alternative when they need to scale up resources temporarily, have overflow work on a consistent basis, or simply require subject matter expertise. This is a cost-effective way of handling changing demands without sacrificing quality. For project scopes small to large, we have a freelance lawyer at the ready.
The A.L.T. Group hopes to expand its reach beyond the legal world, and dedicates a portion of its revenue each year to charitable organizations that empower women throughout the world.
