Alternative careers for lawyers

The legal profession has a legacy reputation for being traditional and formal. A place where there is only one way to the top and the workplace can cause lawyers to burn out.

That’s why many lawyers are trusting our Platform and joining our community at Carbon Law Partners to help them take the leap and embark on an alternative career in the legal industry. Carbon Law Partners was designed for experienced lawyers looking to grow their own legal practice in a community of legal consultants. We have created a purpose-driving legal model that’s built on shared values and high standards.

We’re redefining partnership.  Take control of your career and build your own legal practice with Carbon Law Partners.

Why you might be looking for an alternative career in law

There are many reasons why you, as an experienced lawyer, might be looking to change your career. You might be frustrated by a model that contains aspects of what you do as a lawyer and prevents you from doing the client work you love. Maybe you crave more flexibility and being able to work on your own terms. Maybe you are looking for a new opportunity, a fresh start or a way of honouring your legal career in a manageable way until you retire.

If you find yourself nodding to any of the above, then it might be time to start thinking of starting your own legal practice with Carbon Law Partners.
