WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR 

We welcome commercial and private client litigators, employment lawyers, family, PI, human rights, mental health and other private client solicitors or legal executives/FILEX with at least 3 years post-qualifying experience to talk with us about opportunities at our innovative firm. We operate Chambers and are seeking lawyers who want to work on a self-employed basis, keeping their fees but sharing certain overhead costs including case management and accounting systems, professional indemnity insurance, reception and admin. services.

You must be experienced in business development and be able to generate your own caseload through both existing contacts and referrals. 

Your client service skills should be excellent, and you must have experience of handling a broad range of commercial or private client matters. With strong networking skills and client development experience, you will be a lawyer with the ability to work autonomously, confident and motivated, IT-savvy and boast superb technical skills. You should be able to thrive in a flexible working environment.

WHAT WE OFFER 

Our practice management system allows our team to work independently from the comfort of their own home or offfice  without the traditional complications associated with being a sole practitioner. Our unique system reduces our overheads allowing our lawyers to retain a significantly higher proportion of their gross fees than in a traditional law firm as well as enabling them to make their own personal and professional lifestyle choices.

We will support you to enable you to fulfill your commitments of excellent service to your clients and foster the development and growth of your own client following.

All of your work will be done under the name of this firm and will therefore be covered by our insurances. Depending on the volume of work you bring in we will pay you up to 70% of your profit costs regardless of whether you introduce your own business or it is introduced through us.

Our support includes:

  • Case and finance management system
  • Precedents and know how database
  • Web, video and tele-conferencing
  • CPD assistance
  • Professional Indemnity Insurance cover
  • COLP and COFA services
  • Marketing and development support
  • Brand materials
