The UK's fastest growing in-house legal community

We know the in-house legal experience can feel isolating, hard to navigate, and undervalued. But, this shouldn’t be the norm. We are redefining the experience with a community space where in-house legal professionals can become the best version of themselves professionally and personally. 

Crafty Counsel is the UK’s most dynamic and fast-growing legal Community. With members from across the globe, representing a diverse range of professional backgrounds, the Community is a hub for sharing experiences, learning together, and forming invaluable connections.

Within the community, there are a number of sub-groups which each hold regular virtual meet-ups to discuss the latest industry developments, share best practice and candid stories, and hear from expert speakers. These groups include:

  • Crafty Consultants (for in-house consultants and freelancers)
  • Crafty Starters (for those in the early stages of their career)
  • Enterprise & Government (for larger companies and government)
  • Fundtastic (for venture capital, private equity, and other investment funds)
  • High Growth (for venture-backed startups and scaleups)
  • Lean Legal (for sole counsel and small legal teams)
