Frequently asked questions

Working as a consultant solicitor involves generating your own work. However, we’ll never leave you completely on your own. We have an award-winning Marketing and Business Development team that generates thousands of quality leads every year for our lawyers. Knowing this gives our consultant solicitors more confidence when they join and it often helps get them up and running.

We have recently invested in a new system to make the delivery of leads to our consultants even smoother, giving them greater flexibility and control over the process.
Yes, you are free to bring staff to help you as a consultant solicitor. However, bear in mind that any employees you bring will be employed by you, and not Setfords.
When it comes to setting you up as a consultant solicitor at Setfords, you can progress as quickly or slowly as you wish. That said, we always aim to minimise delays and have even had consultants get set up in as little as two days!
Training on how to use all of our systems is available to consultants before their launch date. Beyond that, refresher training is provided if it’s needed, as well as training should we introduce anything new.

Yes, as a consultant you do not have to work exclusively with us. The majority of our consultant lawyers don’t choose to take on multiple roles, but we understand that you may wish to and do not restrict your ability to do so.

Yes! Our Head Office in Guildford has plenty of space for our lawyers to work and meet clients, and our location on London’s Chancery Lane is also available for the same. This is particularly popular for its proximity to the capital’s legal heart.

Setfords consultants are also free to set up their own office locations, and we have a number of these locations across the country.

Absolutely! One of the biggest perks of being a consultant solicitor is the fact that you can set your own schedule. Whether you want to make the most of your early mornings, take meetings on weekends to fit your client’s schedule, or stick to the traditional 9-5, as a consultant solicitor it’s totally up to you.

Yes, as a Setfords consultant solicitor you are free to set your own fees if you wish. Please note that any pre-quoted work coming through our Business Development team will have set fees.
Becoming a consultant lawyer gives you amazing freedom and flexibility, including when and where you work. You can be based at home, at one of our offices, at your own office in the UK, or even your holiday home.

Most of our consultants choose to work primarily from home, but it all depends on what’s best for you and your clients. Whatever you choose, you won’t have to relocate, and we welcome consultants who are based all over England, Wales, and beyond.
We encourage our solicitors to take as much time as they want for holidays, and we also understand that sometimes you may be too unwell to work. However, this is never an issue at Setfords.

It’s highly likely that one of the other 500+ solicitors will be able to cover you during this time. We encourage networking with your fellow consultant solicitors, and the staff at Head Office can help you find people to cover you too. Failing that, you can bring in locum cover, but this is almost never necessary!
Our dedicated compliance department provides regular webinars and other similar material for our solicitors. Beyond this, the responsibility to seek continued professional development lies with you as a consultant.
Setfords provides all of our consultant solicitors with a desk VoIP phone and dictaphone to get you started. A deposit is taken for this. You will need to use your own computer and broadband connection to get started.
