Cognia Flex is led by Cognia's Head of the UK and Europe, Edward Gill, and has been developed in partnership LAW Absolute, a specialist legal recruitment firm with the largest unique pool of legal talent in the UK.
The move is a further evolution of Ashurst and Cognia Law's focus on creating innovative solutions to support the legal workforce of the future.

"We are delighted to be extending our highly successful collaboration with Cognia in the managed legal services space into the flexible resourcing arena with Cognia Flex. This provides our clients and the firm with a unique resourcing model which spans the full continuum encompassing permanent specialist resourcing, cost effective onshore legal analyst resourcing, offshore managed legal services teams and flexible lawyering in a single integrated package."
Janet Taylor-Hall, Founder and CEO of Cognia Law, said:
"We are very excited to be extending our relationship with Ashurst putting in place an innovative integrated model and launching a Cognia service that we believe to be a unique capability in the legal industry. Bringing a managed services wrapper to the resourcing process, including the vetting of candidates by experienced lawyers, the ongoing management of talent and partnering with one of the most established brands in legal resourcing, enables us to deliver a solution that is both unique and greater than the sum of its parts."
Charlotte Butterfield, CEO of LAW Absolute, said:
