Becoming A Consultancy Solicitor & How To Get Clients

The Consultant Solicitor Business Model

If you have decided it is time to move on and you are considering a consultancy business model, you need to carefully consider all of your options.

There are so many different consultant solicitor business models out there, this is not something that you want to rush in to.

My aim is to give you some insights to help you ask the right questions so that you choose the right consultancy business model for you.

I also want you to consider the option of starting your own law firm, because I promise you, it is not as hard to do this as you might think. Most of the ‘boring’ parts of running a law firm, such as compliance and bookkeeping, can be outsourced for very reasonable fees.

It has become such an important question that I have now put together some advice to help you grow your fee income as a consultant solicitor.

I also have access to a range of consultancy models, the most generous one allowing the consultant to keep 90% of their billings, plus many more.

How To Become A Consultant Solicitor

Already started your consultancy business?

If you have already started as a consultant solicitor, you may now be keen to acquire your first clients and a steady and consistent flow of them. The problem you can have as a consultant solicitor is a big one – you are largely invisible.

You have taken the exciting, yet scary, challenge of becoming a consultant. You start your work, you call around a few old contacts and then what? You wait for clients to come to you and some do, but not enough to excite you.

Once the initial flurry of activity takes place, you need a plan to follow which will allow you to become more visible and to attract a steady and consistent flow of new clients.

The good news is that it is totally achievable for you to bill enough to make the intelligent decision of becoming a consultant a more profitable and fun one than simply being an employed solicitor.

I show you how to attract your own clients in my consultancy guide below. Download it now.

Case Study

I’d always had a retirement date in mind, but before I started working with Nick, I didn’t imagine there was any chance that I’d achieve it

Whether you’re a sole practitioner or a large firm, you’ll get huge value from working with Nick, of that I have no doubt.

It was five years ago that I first came across Nick Jervis, and my only regret is that I didn’t start working with him earlier.

I was a sole practitioner, and for years I’d been advertising in the Yellow Pages and getting decent results.

But as time went on, the response diminished, I was struggling to get as many clients as I needed, and to top it all off, the Yellow Pages still kept pushing the price up.

Eventually, enough was enough – something had to change, otherwise my business was going to be in trouble.

I’d been aware of this guy, Nick Jervis, for a while, and as far as I could tell he was pulling up trees in the solicitor industry with new, sophisticated marketing.

But something had held me back – maybe it was a fear of the new or the unknown.

Whatever it was, I eventually overcame it, hopped on a train to Nailsea, and spent an enthralling day with Nick, where he explained exactly where I was going wrong, and what he’d be doing to fix it.

He certainly wasn’t all talk either, because he went about fixing it with quite some speed.

He got to work constructing a website that would actually convert clients, and then focused on getting me to the top of Google Adwords.

And once he’d done that, the response was spectacular – a few months earlier I’d been scratching around for leads, and now I was getting 3-4 qualified Probate or conveyancing leads direct to my email inbox every single day.

As a result, the turnover increased considerably, and with more breathing space, Nick and I were able to get everything working smoothly.

I was getting more leads, gaining more instructions and making more money than I ever had before.

I’d always had a retirement date in mind, but before I started working with Nick, I didn’t imagine there was any chance that I’d achieve it – the income just wasn’t there.

But with Nick’s help, things changed quickly and significantly, to the point where I was able to reach my retirement date – I’d been at it for 42 years and I decided enough was enough!

Thanks to Nick, I stopped doing Probate and conveyancing, and stepped into semi-retirement as a notary public, which gives me just enough to do to ensure I’m out from beneath my partner’s feet – needless to say, Nick still helps me get work via Google Adwords.

I can’t overstate this enough – Nick changed my life, and for that I will always be grateful. Where I was struggling, Nick stepped in, transformed things and ensured I met my personal and professional goals.

Whether you’re a sole practitioner or a large firm, you’ll get huge value from working with Nick, of that I have no doubt.
