AG Integrate continues to expand with the appointment of Katherine Thomas as a Strategic Adviser.

Launched in September 2015, AG Integrate provides high quality, temporary resource to meet the needs of the firm and its clients.

Katherine, who now operates her own consulting business, was the Co-founder & Director of Pinsent Masons', Vario, one of the first legal resource hubs in the UK. Katherine will bring her market-leading knowledge and experience in flexible resourcing to AG Integrate as the freelance lawyer market continues to boom.

Katherine's appointment marks another significant milestone in the development of AG Integrate which, just six months in has exceeded its targets for its first full year of business.

Greg Bott, Head of the Client Development Centre and AG Integrate stated:

"I am thrilled to have Katherine on board. Her knowledge and experience of the fast evolving freelance lawyer market will prove invaluable as AG Integrate continues to grow.

Our focus over the past six months has been on signing consultants of the highest quality, who fit with the culture of AG and who have specialist expertise in key areas. As a firm, integrating our existing lawyer model with our paralegal hub, TST and new contract lawyer offering enables us to deliver innovative, high quality solutions that meet the specific needs of clients.

We have ambitious plans for AG integrate and the role it will play in delivering blended resourcing solutions to clients. I am delighted Katherine is keen to be part of the team that will make those plans a reality."

Katherine added:

"The future belongs to lawyers who are willing to adapt and collaborate, which makes these exciting times for AG Integrate. I’m delighted to be working with an energetic team that’s collaborating across boundaries to blend the best of traditional law with new-provider innovation, to give clients the quality, flexibility and value they want."

AG Integrate places self-employed lawyers within our clients' businesses to provide additional resource for discrete projects or to deliver additional expertise for a defined period of time. Alongside this, AG Integrate also allows the firm to flex its own workforce, to enable the firm to resource workflow and transaction peaks effectively.
