Allens Adapt: Geoff Sanders' experience

Geoff, a partner specialising in superannuation, funds management and financial services law (which has been a hot spot for client demand in recent years), has been a supporter of the Adapt program since its early days, and regularly refers lawyers in his network to the program. He's assisted in matching a number of secondees to clients - some of these are on long term contracts, some shorter and some have ended up at the client permanently.

Geoff says the Adapt program can be a fantastic fit for the right person at the right client and has proved a hit in particular with his clients in financial services given the resourcing demands faced by the sector in recent years.

'I find Allens Adapt a terrific client engagement tool. Clients are often reaching out during a tricky time for their legal team, and the ability to provide them with a high-quality solution for a period of time has really helped entrench broader client relationships. On the other side, it's great for lawyers who don’t want the commitment of a traditional full-time job, providing flexibility and varied contract lengths.'

Geoff has also found Adapt to be an ideal way for lawyers to build industry-relevant experience.

'It's an excellent way to build expertise within an industry - for example, the program has been a great entry point into superannuation for some of the lawyers we've previously placed at clients.'

Geoff commented that lawyers with varied career paths in the law and those not currently looking for a long-term commitment can be particularly suited to Adapt.

'Great Adapt candidates come from all career backgrounds, but those who are more experienced and looking for a stint in a high-performing team without necessarily committing to a longer-term arrangement are particularly perfect for the Adapt program.'

*Allens Adapt matches legal experts to short or fixed-term contract opportunities at leading organisations in Australia, including Allens.
