At Orbit, we are working differently

A pioneer in the Australian legal market, Orbit Legal Resourcing, was launched by Corrs Chambers Westgarth in 2014 and is providing Australian lawyers with a different way of working.

The traditional legal market is evolving and today, many lawyers are looking for alternative career paths. Careers that provide them with an opportunity to balance professional and personal goals by choosing when they work, how they work, and who they work for.

Since 2014, Orbit has built a network of experienced lawyers and is delivering flexibility and control through offering lawyers short to medium term assignments either within Corrs or in-house with one of our clients. As an Orbit Lawyer, your professional development is assured with access to interesting, diverse and challenging work.

With Orbit you’ll be able to choose the assignments that suit you and your lifestyle.
