Excello Law was established in July 2009 as one of the first limited company law firms. We received our licence as an Alternative Business Structure in 2013.

Now Excello is one of the leading fee share firms in the UK.

Unlike traditional law firms, Excello Law has a streamlined structure led by an experienced and passionate board with extensive expertise. The Executive Board consists of Founder and Managing Director, George Bisnought and Recruitment Director Joanne Losty, supported by a Leadership Team covering marketing, finance, risk & compliance, operations, IT and business support services.

Excello Law is an entirely new-model law firm; we are neither a type of chambers or a franchise. Our structure was created to meet the evolving needs of lawyers and clients alike in the 21st century. We believe that by promoting collaborative and co-operative working, we can encourage success and, ultimately, happiness.

Excello is the only fee-share firm dedicated to empowering experienced lawyers, boasting an average PQE of 19 years. Our unwavering commitment to excellence and integrity sets us apart . At Excello, we believe in fostering a corporate culture rooted in values and driven by a dedication to providing unparalleled support to our lawyers.

Our approach is distinctly tailored to meet the unique needs of each lawyer, eschewing one-size-fits-all solutions in favor of bespoke strategies. Whether lawyers opt to join as fee-share partners, as part of a cohesive team, merge their firm with Excello, or establish their own branded legal practice under our umbrella, they find themselves propelled towards success by our extensive support solutions.

Excello offers more than just financial reward; we provide complete autonomy and flexibility over their work and career trajectories. We firmly believe that by affording lawyers the freedom to define their work styles, they achieve greater heights of success, leading to not only contented lawyers but also satisfied clients.

We understand that our strength lies in the calibre of our lawyers, which is why we invest time in comprehending their aspirations and goals for their professional journey. Our bespoke transition and induction programs are tailored to meet the unique needs of every individual, fostering a culture of trust, collaboration, and achievement.

xcello isn’t about being the largest; it’s about being the best, and we achieve that by selectively onboarding highly reputable lawyers who align with our values and vision.

The term “virtual law firm” can be deceptive. Whilst Excello Law boasts cloud-based services and remote support, we encourage a strong community ethos and face-to-face interaction between our lawyers.

The needs of lawyers and clients are ever-changing and our firm continually evolves to meet those needs. So, while virtual working is entirely possible with Excello Law, we provide admin and secretarial support, conferences and regional meetings, as well as offices and client meeting rooms in 10 City-centre locations across the country. In this way, we offer absolute flexibility while helping lawyers and clients to remain connected.

At Excello, we prioritise quality over quantity, firmly believing that excellence defines our firm. We’re not focused on being the biggest; we’re dedicated to being the best. Our tailored support solutions and exceptional lawyers distinguish us in the legal landscape. We invest time in understanding each lawyer’s objectives and motivations, ensuring they thrive within our environment.

Our commitment to long-term success drives our strategy, emphasising sustainable growth and reputation enhancement across targeted sectors. Excello: where excellence is paramount.
