About us

Contax Law are a specialist In-house legal services provider. We provide alternative legal and recruitment services to support In House legal departments ranging from FTSE-100 companies to much smaller institutions needing legal resources whether that be through a legal consultant, interim contractor or permanent hire. We have a pool of over 350 vetted lawyers, paralegals, compliance professionals and project managers who we can deploy at short notice to our clients.  

Our consultants are uniquely positioned to have access to some of the strongest lawyers in the market either from leading law firms or directly from In-house legal teams.  This is party due to the affiliation with our sister company, Nicholas Scott, who are well known and focus solely on finding the best talent within Private Practice.

Unlike most of our competitors, we are not associated with any particular law firm. We employ processes to ensure that our candidates are all of the highest quality. Aside from assessing the quality of their training and experience, we vet their qualifications, identity, references, right to work in the UK, PI cover and criminal background. Our interim candidates come with no employee arrangements, holiday pay or recruitment fees, working either remotely or on-site at our clients' offices. Contax Law sits contractually between its clients and its interim candidates (or their personal service company or umbrella company) so as to give its clients an administratively easy and seamless experience.  We actively engage with contractors on assignment so that they are supported when support is needed.
