Where do you get your talent?
We pride ourselves on the exceptional quality of our legal talent. Our rigorous vetting and recruitment process turns away roughly 95% of applicants. This ensures that our network only has top-tier talent. Our Fractional Counsels boast an average of 12 years of legal experience, often hailing from prestigious backgrounds in big law firms like Blakes, BLG, and Osler, or holding significant in-house roles at renowned companies such as Wal-Mart, Shopify, and TD. This blend of experience ensures a comprehensive understanding and ability to cater to a diverse range of legal needs.
What if I don’t use all the hours?
We understand that legal needs have peaks and valleys, so we built Fractional Counsel with flexibility at its core. Each engagement has a quarterly (90-day) rollover window, allowing you the freedom to utilize any unused hours within this period. This approach ensures that you get the full value of your Fractional Counsel, providing you with peace of mind and the flexibility to use their services as and when your needs arise.
What does the 90-day pilot entail?
Every fractional mandate begins with a 90-day pilot. We do this to build trust and demonstrate the value of your fractional counsel, while also collecting feedback that can be used to refine and optimize the engagement. Our Operations team will help your Fractional Counsel get integrated using our proven best practices.

The first steps include onboarding like you would any new team member, including setting up a company email and scheduling a weekly recurring touchpoint. Our Fractional Counsels are keen to roll up their sleeves and take on immediate tasks while working with management to identify longer-term priorities.

Throughout the Pilot, our Operations team will check in and ensure your project is on track for a successful outcome. The pilot will conclude with a review to determine whether adjustments are required before continuing the mandate.
What makes Goodlawyer different from other ALSPs?
Goodlawyer sets itself apart from other Alternative Legal Service Providers primarily through its unique approach to engaging legal talent. Unlike many ALSPs, we do not impose full-time, exclusive work requirements on our lawyers. This flexibility allows us to attract and retain highly experienced and skilled legal professionals across Canada. 

Furthermore, top lawyers are attracted to practicing as Fractional Counsel with innovative scaleups and modern in-house teams. This exposure to challenging and innovative environments is a critical factor in Goodlawyer's ability to attract top legal talent and deliver high-quality legal services to our clients.
