Krongrad earned her law degree from Boston University.
“We are pleased to welcome Tamar to our team,” LawFlex CEO and co-founder Jackie Donner said in a statement. “She is going to be a great asset, especially with the upcoming expansion of our presence in the United States. ”
LawFlex was founded in 2015. The company matches contract attorneys with in-house counsel in need of outsourced legal work. According to its website, the lawyers LawFlex works with span 24 jurisdictions. “It is clear that the practice of law is undergoing massive transformation, and the name of the game is flexibility,” Krongrad said. “Clients want to work with law firms that know how to use the tools of New Law, and in-house counsel are looking for the support we can provide them as well.
