IR35

Contax Law is a leader amongst agencies in its proactive approach to the forthcoming IR35 legislative changes in April 2020. We are actively working with our clients to ensure that roles which can fall outside of IR35 will actually do so, by structuring and advertising the role accordingly and ensuring that our contracts have the necessary levers in place and that our clients are clear on how the services need to operate once underway. Those roles which cannot fall outside of IR35 are procured using a PAYE or umbrella company model so that the client has no potential liability.

MOBILE APP

Contax Law is a leader in the use of technology to support our lawyers: in March 2019 we launched a contractor App which obtains rapid responses from lawyers in the Contax Pool for new roles which come in. Push notifications are sent to only those lawyers who match the desired skills set. Lawyers can then apply for roles from their phone, making the whole application process available ‘on-the-go’, allowing us to provide appropriate and available candidates to our clients more quickly. The App also allows easy timesheet submission, invoicing and communication with Contax Law. Our deployment of the App was shortlisted for an Award in 2019.
