Who We Are - A few members of our London, UK Team

They come from all over. 

They hold law degrees, business degrees, and just about everything in between. 

Some started in traditional law firms.  Others cut their teeth with global conglomerates, or jumped into startups. But whether they were attracted by the freedom to choose their work, how they spend their free time, or what areas of expertise to explore, they all had something in common—that feeling in the pit of their stomach that there was something better. 

For themselves. For clients. For the industry.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Axiom Global full-time (More than a year)


    Axiom is well-established and has relationships with many diverse companies, so it seems fairly easy to get placed in ongoing engagements. Also, their staff (at least in the SF office) are very friendly, welcoming, supportive, and provide lots of online and in-person resources (including many fun social events).


    Can't think of any cons (except see "Advice to Management" below)

    Advice to Management

    Get your various benefits/compensation teams aligned to reduce the # of errors in implementation and payment of benefits/compensation. Also, it would be great to provide more/better benefits.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Axiom Global (Chicago, IL) in July 2015.


    The interview was focused on experience in reviewing contracts and provided a good discussion of my skills. The company is great to work for and with in terms of contract type of work.
