High-calibre work with top-tier clients.

Peerpoint.

Going solo doesn’t mean going it alone.

Peerpoint is the global platform for self-directed consultant lawyers who want to access the best work, clients, bespoke support and resources.

More control, choice, challenge and calibre.

This is the advantage we offer our consultants and what sets us apart. Peerpoint offers clients a way to access a panel of top-tier, senior lawyers who have the skills and expertise to work with their businesses’ legal and compliance teams with the support of A&O.

Peerpoint operates from Hong Kong, London, Singapore and Sydney, supporting progressive lawyers in defining their careers. The Peerpoint panel is made up of lawyers with several years’ post-qualification experience, usually some of it spent in-house or on secondment.

But the majority of panel members aren’t A&O alumni, as we welcome lawyers with a range of top-tier experience.

A new way to progress

Peerpoint is a different way to develop your career, to get what you want out of both your professional and your personal lives. You may want more variety in your work to deepen your expertise and, with an expanded skillset gain a competitive edge. 

You may want more control over your time, to be able to balance professional and personal ambitions. Whatever your individual choices or needs, you demand the opportunity to set your own course and maintain the trajectory of your career as you move ahead.

As a Peerpoint consultant, you’re in the driving seat when it comes to deciding how, when and where you work. Whether you are looking for a short-term assignment with A&O or a six-month placement with a client, we give you variety and control. We support a diverse range of top-tier clients and our teams work closely with you to understand your goals and ambitions to find you the right assignment. By carefully matching our consultants with the roles that suit them, we deliver the best possible experience for clients and consultants alike, ensuring that your career is developing in the way you want it to.

Case stories

Employment law maternity cover

A senior employment consultant covered a year-long maternity leave in the employment legal team at a major technology company. Bringing in a Peerpoint consultant offered a clear benefit for our client: "You're looking for someone with a certain expertise and you want a lawyer who can hit the ground running. It's much, much easier to go to an organisation, like Peerpoint, that has a pool of potential candidates – much easier and much quicker."

Brexit

A senior and experienced financial services regulatory lawyer joined the panel and immediately took on a role with a US private bank to lead on their Brexit programme, working alongside the bank's Brexit project manager. This role has been the first Brexit placement for Peerpoint.

Structuring reform project

Our consultant, an experienced corporate and M&A lawyer, supported a client on a structuring reform programme for their non-ring-fenced bank. The consultant has prepared a due diligence report to present to the Board. The project was a great success and the consultant was instrumental in its delivery. They were described as "a great team player and very positive".

MiFID II implementation

A senior regulatory and compliance consultant took on a role with the legal team at a US investment bank to assist with their preparation for and implementation of MiFID II. Our consultant offers dedicated support in the implementation of the regulation, and works four days per week with one day from home, which enables her to balance family commitments.

Margin requirements project

Two Peerpoint consultants, both specialists in derivatives and structured finance, have been supporting a major investment bank in its implementation of margin requirements for uncleared derivatives. Both consultants have been supportive to the bank's implementation of margin requirements and their terms have been repeatedly extended in order to continue to support in reaching on-going deadlines.
