At times, you may need an extra pair of hands to work with you for a defined period on a project basis. This may happen if:

    (a) You are temporarily understaffed;
    (b) You need help with backlog or unattended files;
    (c) You need to boost your team for a sudden influx of major transactional work which have landed on your desk; or
    (d) You wish to add a new expertise to your current team, which presently does not exist.

We are able to help introduce and connect you to locum solicitors and locum paralegals throughout the UK in law firms, as well as in in-house legal departments. All our locums work on a self-employed basis. Each locum is unique in that they have different hourly rates, different expertise practice areas, different preferences on length of tenure, and preferred locations for office-based work. We also have senior locums who work remotely and are happy to assist you when a desk-based role is not essential.


Our Fees are transparent and work as a flat-rate, one-time introduction fee. Unlike other Agencies, we do not charge commission fees dependent on what you pay the locum and for how long. We believe this is simpler, hassle-free and works better for you. You stay in control as you communicate and contract directly with the locum, without any further interference from us once introduced.


In some cases, locums are so good that they stay on and are invited to become permanent members of staff. Should this happen, you only need to pay the balance of what you would have paid as 10% of their annual gross salary, as laid out in our standard Terms & Conditions for Recruitment.

We like to keep it simple and help you get the best cover possible, when you need it most. Email: Email: recruitment@lexconscientia.co.uk to discuss how we may be able to assist you.


If you are a locum solicitor or paralegal, there is absolutely no fee for you to join our talent pool. Just drop us your CV or send us an email recruitment@lexconscientia.co.uk and we will contact you.
