Why Become a Consultant Solicitor at Excello Law?

The legal profession has long been associated with traditional law firms, where lawyers work within a structured hierarchy, all aiming towards the ultimate goal of becoming a partner. However, the landscape has changed significantly, and becoming a consultant solicitor has become an enticing option. This innovative approach to legal practice offers a host of benefits, and Excello Law, a leading Legal 500 law firm, stands out as an exceptional choice for lawyers considering this alternative career route. With an abundance of consultancy-model law firms now promising ‘freedom and flexibility’ – why should you choose Excello?

1. A Commitment to Excellence

Excello Law is renowned as the go-to destination for the best and brightest legal talent, thanks to our unwavering commitment to excellence. From the outset, we meticulously select lawyers who demonstrate exceptional legal skills and a profound passion for their craft. Our rigorous approvals process, which requires the green light from both our insurer and board, guarantees that only the most qualified and ethical individuals join us. This stringent approach ensures that our team comprises lawyers with outstanding legal acumen and an unwavering dedication to providing exceptional service. By attracting and retaining the finest legal minds, we consistently raise the bar for excellence in the industry. Our lawyers are not merely practitioners; they are thought leaders, innovators, and problem solvers who consistently deliver exceptional results. Excello Law stands apart by nurturing and empowering our legal talent, consistently surpassing expectations and offering clients access to top-tier professionals who uphold the highest standards of legal practice.

2. Build your own practice

Joining Excello Law as a consultant solicitor, is not just about practicing law; it’s about embracing entrepreneurship. Consultants have the opportunity to develop their own brand, market their services, and build a network of clients and referrals. Excello Law, with its focus on achieving excellence for lawyers and clients, supports and encourages the entrepreneurial endeavours of its consultants, empowering them to take control of their professional destiny and shape their own success. Our lawyers have the freedom to select the areas of law they wish to specialise in, curate their preferred client base, and determine the hours they dedicate to their practice. Excello Law empowers its consultant solicitors, who are all experienced lawyers, to create a career that aligns precisely with their personal and professional aspirations.

3. Thrive in a supportive community

Contrary to the notion that consultant solicitors work in isolation, Excello Law fosters a supportive and collaborative environment. The firm, which exclusively recruits lawyers with extensive experience, promotes networking, knowledge-sharing, and professional development, providing consultants with opportunities to connect with like-minded and ambitious legal professionals. We are proud that 42% of the files opened on our case management system are referrals between lawyers. Excello lawyers can trust that they won’t need to take responsibility or account for the lack of experience of junior lawyers and subsequent mistakes. Excello Law’s community enables consultants to expand their horizons, tap into a wealth of expertise, and access the support needed to excel in their practice.

4. Tailored Support

At Excello, we believe in providing a bespoke support package that caters to your unique needs. Unlike other consultancy-model firms, we understand that a one-size-fits-all approach simply won’t do. That’s why we work closely with each lawyer, tailoring our support to ensure they have everything they need to thrive and enjoy their work. Whether you prefer to sit under the Excello brand name or maintain your own brand identity, we are dedicated to providing the resources and assistance required to make your journey a success.

5. Consultancy Plus

Live WebinarsOur unparalleled support team, known as Excello 360, goes far beyond the ‘standard’ package offered to consultant solicitors and it is all included free of charge. Excello Law is committed to empowering our lawyers to focus on what truly matters—their clients. With an extensive range of services including administrative, secretarial, PA, paralegal support, HR, compliance, and IT, our inclusive support network relieves lawyers from time-intensive tasks, enabling them to dedicate 100% of their energy to meeting their clients’ needs. From loans to financial planning, we strive to make the transition from traditional law to consultancy as seamless as possible.

6. Work-Life Balance

Achieving a healthy work-life balance is often a challenge for lawyers, with billable hours and firm targets demanding significant time and energy. However, as a consultant solicitor at Excello Law, individuals gain greater control over their schedules. They can prioritise family commitments, personal interests, and overall well-being without compromising their professional growth. At Excello Law every lawyer has access to our wellbeing platform which offers educational content, webinars and on demand 24/7 1:1 access to expert mental-health practitioners including business coaching, therapy, mindfulness and counselling. This emphasis on work-life balance, coupled with Excello Law’s tailored approach to support, fosters higher job satisfaction and overall happiness.

7. Embrace Flexibility and Remote Working

The legal industry has witnessed a revolution in technology and remote work, and consultant solicitors at Excello Law are at the forefront of this shift. As independent practitioners, they have the freedom to work from any of Excello Law’s nine central nationwide offices, a home office, a shared workspace, or even while traveling. This flexibility allows consultants to create a work environment that suits their preferences, optimizing their productivity. Moreover, they can serve clients beyond geographical limitations, expanding their reach and potential client base.
