The role: Knowledge Lawyer
The knowledge lawyer role was developed in large international law firms in the early 90s. Originally, intended as an internal role, to support practising lawyers, the role has evolved significantly and now incorporates an important client support element with many knowledge lawyers providing services to clients that compliment the services provided by their practicing colleagues including development of strategy, negotiating support and training.
We are pleased to introduce this new role to Addis Law to enhance our services to our clients.
Knowledge lawyers are not practicing lawyers and do not provide legal advice directly to clients but support their firm’s practicing lawyers and clients to ensure that the firm provides the best advice possible.
