A boutique London law firm has launched an innovative fee-sharing scheme in which experienced lawyers work autonomously from home.

AH Christie Legal's fee-sharing arrangement targets family lawyers and mediators with more than five years' post-qualification experience.

Members of the scheme will benefit from the support and advantages of affiliation with the firm but will work on a self-employed, fee-sharing consultancy basis from home.

The flexible staff will be expected to attract, develop and manage their own caseloads from initial contact with a potential client to completing and closing client matters.

"The ability to take responsibility for a matter from beginning to an end is obviously essential," said the firm's name partner, Annabel Christie.

"The desired candidates will need to have excellent people skills and naturally be able to establish excellent rapport with clients."

Changes to the UK's flexible working regulations came into effect yesterday which allow all employees with more than 26 weeks’ continuous service to apply to work reduced hours or from home.
