consultant solicitors & consultant lawyers & consultant law firm

Summerfield Browne Solicitors are commercial solicitors regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority. We are a modern and progressive law firm and operate a new legal services business model.


What sets us apart from many other corporate solicitors is that we deliver legal services using a business model that utilises the best aspects of the traditional law firm but which also incorporates a flexible consultancy based legal services model. This means that many of our solicitors are consultant solicitors who work remotely at various locations in England and by using the latest IT technology they can service our clients anywhere in England and Wales. All our consultants are self-employed solicitors.


This aspect of our business is operated as a consultant law firm and our consultant solicitors are appointed on a highly competitive fee sharing arrangement. Our consultant lawyers are able to work on a flexible basis which enables them to work when they wish.


We provide the following support for our consultant solicitors:


  • SRA regulated legal practice through which to provide client legal services.

  • Comprehensive professional indemnity insurance.

  • IT toolkit including email and word, to assist our consultant lawyers where they work remotely.

  • Accounts support for our consultant solicitors including issuing invoices and credit control function.

  • General back office administrative support including support with new client and new matter file opening, anti-money laundering procedure, client engagement terms and conditions.  


We use modern and innovative marketing strategies to spread our message. We generate a lot of new client enquiries which we disseminate to our consultant solicitors so that they can follow them up, and where possible convert the lead into a new client. It is not necessary to have a client following in order to become a self-employed consultant solicitor with us.


If you are fed up with the traditional legal model, and want to try something fresh and new, why not call us. As part of a consultant law firm, you have the opportunity to become an integral member of our team, while at the same time retaining your autonomy. As a consultant solicitor, you can work when you want and how you want, providing it is SRA compliant! It can also be very lucrative, and many of our consultant lawyers make a very good living.
