What is a Consultant Solicitor?

A consultant solicitor is a legal professional who operates as an independent contractor under the umbrella of a consultancy model firm like Excello Law. This role empowers solicitors to enjoy the benefits of running their own practice while benefiting from the support and resources of a progressive and forward-thinking firm. At Excello we have over 200 partner-level lawyers who have chosen to move away from the traditional legal path.

  1. Freedom and Flexibility

As a consultant solicitor, you have the power to shape your own destiny. Excello Law embraces a flexible working model that allows you to design a schedule that suits your lifestyle and personal commitments. Enjoy the freedom to set your own hours and work arrangements, ensuring a healthier work-life balance.

  1. Retain Control Over Your Practice

At Excello Law, we believe in empowering solicitors to take control of their careers. As a consultant solicitor, you maintain complete autonomy over your practice, allowing you to build and develop your own client base. You retain full control over your client relationships, case selection, and fee structure, ensuring that you can operate in alignment with your professional goals and values.

  1. Work from Anywhere

Whether you prefer to work remotely, from a home office, or a blend of locations, the choice is yours. We have lawyers working in Germany, Dubai, UAE and the US. You can also work from one of our 9 offices Nationwide. Our offices in London, Liverpool, Manchester, Birmingham, Leeds, Chester, Nottingham, Stoke-on-Trent and Leicester are all modern and fully staffed offices that are available for use at any time.

  1. Fair Remuneration

As a consultant solicitor the fee-share model allows you to take home a greater share of your earnings compared to traditional law firms. At Excello Law, our fee share model ensures that the hard work and effort put into building client relationships and generating business directly benefit our consultant solicitors themselves. This approach eliminates the constraints of fixed salary structures and provides a rewarding financial arrangement that aligns with their individual success and efforts.
