The Benefits of Consultancy Work as a Freelance Solicitor 

by WardBlawg on May 25, 2022

New insights on the benefits of consultancy work as a freelance Solicitor from Scott-Moncrieff & Associates, one of the UK’s leading ‘virtual law firms.

If you are thinking about making a change to your working life, you may have considered going freelance and working as a consultant solicitor.  There are many benefits to consultancy work as a solicitor, and more and more people are making the switch. As a result of the pandemic, many have embraced modern ways of working, and an increasing number of solicitors are looking at the benefits life as a consultant solicitor can offer.

Scott-Moncrieff & Associates have many years of experience helping solicitors thrive under a consultancy model and in this article, we look at just some of the advantages of working as a consultant solicitor. 

Greater focus on quality work and lawyering

When you work as a consultant solicitor, you are focused solely on providing a high-quality service to your clients. You do not need to be concerned about administration or the politics often involved in working in a traditional law firm. The consultancy model is ideal for lawyers who prefer offering excellent legal services to clients instead of being involved in firm management. 

You can work to suit your client’s schedules 

Consultant solicitors choose their own working hours, which means they can work to suit their client’s needs and schedules. Not all clients are available within the traditional 9-5, so if you work with international clients or those in industries such as hospitality, consultancy work means you don’t have to work every hour of the day to meet client demands. 

Keep a percentage of your fees (earn as much as you want)

The consultancy model can allow you to earn as much as you want, as you will keep a percentage of your fees instead of earning a salary. At Scott-Moncrieff, our consultants typically keep around 70% of their fees. For many people, this offers the opportunity to make more money than they ever could as part of a traditional law firm. 

Freedom to build your dream career

One of the biggest draws to consultancy work for many lawyers is the freedom it can offer. You choose your own working hours, you can work wherever you wish, and you can work with the best clients for you. Many lawyers do not want to work full time, and with the consultancy model and the ability to earn what you want; you can work part-time or flexibly without sacrificing your earnings. You can create a working pattern and lifestyle that works for you.
