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.

Who Am I?

Nick Jervis Solicitor And Marketing Adviser To Consultant SolicitorsI am Nick Jervis and for 14 years, some time ago, I was a solicitor.

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

Beating the big boys whilst spending a fraction of their budget

We focus on accident claims, and it’s vital for us to have a strong web presence, which we didn’t have before Nick got involved.

As a result we had to buy in leads from other sources, reducing our profit margins and making us reliant on other companies to generate revenue.

We did have a company working on our Adwords and website, but the truth of the matter is that they weren’t getting the results we needed them to get – we only had a handful of clients coming in from those efforts, making us highly reliant on buying in the leads from elsewhere.

And then I came across one of Nick’s books, was impressed by what I read and got in touch with him.

The rest – as they say – is history.

We started working together with a clear brief: Nick’s job was to help us bring in more self-generated work, so we could stop relying on buying leads.

He started by working on our website, making it more accessible and easier to navigate.

Next he overhauled our Google Adwords, which the previous company had been running fairly unsuccessfully.

Adwords is hugely challenging in our sector, with some very big players bidding on some of the most common keywords, making it very difficult for any smaller firms to get a look in, and I’ve got to be honest and say that I didn’t know how Nick was going to make it work.

But he did, by analysing very closely what people were looking for and tailoring our Adwords efforts towards them.

It worked! We were competing with the big boys whilst spending a fraction of their budget, and the amount of work we got in was tremendous – we jumped from just a handful of leads and clients a month to 500 leads and 150 clients, every single month, all from our online efforts.

Nick didn’t just work on the lead generation side of things either – he helped us with the client conversion process too, training our team, making our sales calls better and improving our onboarding process to avoid drop-offs due to ‘cooling off’.

Now we don’t buy in any work at all, our pay-per-click efforts do a sterling job, and the large client database that Nick has helped us build has allowed us to increase the amount of work we do by a factor of ten, in just three years.

I’m one extremely satisfied client, and despite the dramatic differences Nick has been able to make in the time we’ve been working together, things are still improving thanks to his guidance and support.
