The Ontra Legal Community
Ontra's legal network is made up of experienced lawyers looking to build remote, tech-enabled legal practices on their own terms while also fulfilling their personal passions and interests. We offer lawyers access to a legal network of like-minded individuals and foster a supportive, inclusive community.

Legal Partner Resources, Support, and Collaboration
Ontra’s Legal Training and Development team provides tailored training programs and on-demand materials to support the ongoing success of the community. They ensure legal partners are equipped with the skills they need to grow a thriving practice within the network. Ontra also offers a free membership to Practising Law Institute for additional skills development and to complete required CLE credits.
Our Community Management, Legal Resourcing, and Account Management teams provide ongoing white-glove service to legal partners. This ensures legal partners have the support they need to focus on their sophisticated legal practices, provide a high level of service to their clients, and have the freedom to grow their firms the way they want.
Ontra’s legal partners are welcomed into a global network of more than 600 like-minded professionals. Despite legal partners having a fully remote practice, we enable them to connect and collaborate across the network on a regular basis by facilitating virtual and in-person networking opportunities. We also provide a teaming system on client engagements to ensure seamless client coverage, so legal partners never have to put their personal lives on hold.
Legal Partner Events
While our model is remote-first for Ontra legal partners, we know connecting with peers is a crucial part of a lawyer’s practice. That’s why we periodically host in-person events for our legal partners. These events give lawyers the opportunity to network and share their experiences on our platform, as well as get to know the many Ontra professionals who support our legal partners.
There was no better way to kick off fall than a September networking event with our Ontra legal partners in New York. Lawyers local to the area enjoyed having the opportunity to connect with one another and members of the Ontra team in person at a rooftop venue in Midtown.
Recently, we saw the return of in-person networking with our first-of-its-kind APAC legal partner event. We had a busy year in the region, with the APAC legal partner network doubling in size. We celebrated this phenomenal success over a sushi-filled lunch gathering with our Hong Kong-based legal partners.
