Elevate and Ashurst Collaborate on Ashurst Advance Reach with Flex Resourcing Platform
LONDON – November 8, 2019 – Elevate today announced a collaboration with leading multinational law firm Ashurst to launch a new flexible resourcing platform as part of the Firm’s Ashurst Advance capability. The platform will enable Ashurst to source contract lawyers as an extension to Ashurst’s practice areas and will also allow Ashurst clients to access technical expertise for secondments.
The collaboration with Elevate is entirely new for Ashurst. Elevate will initially enable the Firm to provide flexible resourcing in both the UK and Australia, and ultimately will be rolled out globally.
“There is a growing worldwide demand for the flexible resourcing model,” said Janvi Patel, VP of Elevate. “This collaboration will provide Ashurst and its clients greater flexibility and more cost-effective ways to meet their needs, demonstrating Elevate’s capabilities for enabling leading law firms.”
“Successful collaborations between leading law firms and leading service providers is increasingly defining the future of the market,” said Iain Brown, Head of Alternative Resourcing in Ashurst Advance Delivery. “Elevate enjoys a well-earned reputation as a law company with first-class credentials in the flexible resourcing market and a proven track record of ensuring the best service standards for clients. We are delighted to offer clients the benefits that will result from our new partnership with Elevate.”
