The appeal of legal consultancy for senior lawyers

Following an article in The Lawyer on the trend of lawyers leaving traditional law firms for legal consultancy, our friends at TBD Marketing wrote a piece outlining the most compelling reasons for senior lawyers, including:

  • A valid employment model that rewards them but which doesn’t saddle them with the additional burdens
  • The ability to earn as they work and the freedom to manage their own time
  • Ability to better balance legal life with caring responsibilities
  • With the option to take home 70% of any work the lawyer wins themselves, it simply makes more financial sense for entrepreneurial lawyers.

Read TBD’s full article here, including insights from our very own CEO Michael Burne:

“Law has always been a people business and personal brands are the driver for winning and retaining clients. Consultancy shines a light on this. You may even find a real equity share, a retirement value in your practice and little risk when compared to a partnership or the larger consultancies.”
