Congratulations go to Dana Denis-Smith and the team at Obelisk who are finalists in the FT Innovative Lawyers Awards 2013 for a second year in a row. Well done to them on their achievement!
The category in which they have been short-listed in is Legal Industry Pioneers.
Dana, CEO of Obelisk said, "Being short-listed for these prestigious awards and featured in the forthcoming FT Special Report in October is a testament to the skills and capabilities of our team and the innovative nature of our business. Our focus remains to provide flexible and affordable quality legal support to in-house legal teams and law firms."
The Obelisk vision is to build the world’s leading outsourcing business centred around communities of local, home-based highly-skilled professionals. They provide legal support through three service lines (stand in lawyers, stand out lawyers and stand by lawyers) to businesses and law firms seeking a flexible and affordable quality legal support solution.
Obelisk services clients’ legal support work by tapping into a multi-lingual talent pool of nearly 500 lawyers that is completely unutilised – top ex-City lawyers, mostly women, who opt out of the workplace to focus on family commitments. This defines a new high standard work culture: balancing the well-being of lawyers and the ambitions of a successful, innovative business.
