Morae Global Corporation has formally launched a legal resourcing service to match legal departments and law firms with lawyers, paralegals, and compliance and legal operations professionals.
The new ‘On Demand by Morae’ offering sees Morae branch out from its existing legal technology consultancy and implementation ‘back end’ business and into legal services. Morae says that the launch is in response to increasing demands to match law firms and legal organisations with the right people.
“OnDemand by Morae plays an important role in our strategic direction as a global legal service provider,” said Mathew Crocker, chief strategy officer at Morae. “Legal departments and law firms increasingly need to recalibrate their delivery of legal services, driven by growth in remote working and on demand legal teams, a trend we see proliferating into 2022. OnDemand by Morae will not only meet our clients’ resourcing needs but in doing so will help establish a new career paradigm for legal experts.”
Varun Srikumar, managing director for Morae’s Legal Resourcing Solutions, added: “The pandemic has forced many organisations to develop remote working models. But many are also discovering the importance of finding ways to embed agile and dynamic expertise to ensure high-performance. We encourage clients to consider more than just the financial benefits of ondemand legal talent. Planning for the future of legal service delivery and agile teams is necessary to keeping pace with a fast-changing business environment, regulatory landscape, and economy.”
“We’re seeing a significant increase as well in interest from lawyers and other professionals in the legal space who want to work with us. Some are currently engaged in full-time roles and considering the flexibility of project- focused work. Some are coming back from maternity or paternity leaves and looking to re-engage their careers. Morae offers an attractive option because of our focus on professional development, diversity equity and inclusion, and other issues important to the talent we regularly work with. We are laser focused on enhancing the quality of interactions between client and talent to facilitate the overall engagement process, such as by embedding the latest technological solutions into video interviews,” Srikumar added.
Srikumar was appointed in June to lead Morae’s global on demand resourcing service and business. He has over 15 years of experience in legal consulting and strategic business transformation, including previous roles with Elevate Services, Advanced Discovery, Huron Consulting Group, and other organisations.
