We are all about changing the way solicitors work. With a passion for flexible working we offer 100% home working.

If you are an experienced solicitor, becoming a Consultant Solicitor could quite literally change your life!

We will give you:

  • 70% of your fee income
  • Total flexibility to set your own charge out rates and working hours
  • The facility to work when, where, and how you want 
  • Complete back up and administrative support
  • The welcome relief of a commute free life
  • An infinitely better work/life balance
  • Freedom from time-consuming, unproductive, internal meetings 

Enjoy practicing the law, and reclaim some balance in the way you manage your life.

About Cognitive Law

Cognitive Law is a boutique consultancy law firm built on traditional foundations. Established by a working mum who needed to reclaim her work-life balance without compromising either. Headquartered in Brighton, and with a growing hub in Liverpool, Cognitive’s consultant solicitors work on a virtual and flexible basis, most of them from home. Each consultant solicitor manages their own client base and practice specialism, whilst being totally supported by a team based in the head office.

We have ambitious development plans and are actively looking for like-minded solicitors to join us in changing the way law is practiced outside of a traditional law firm environment. We are passionate about promoting 100% flexible working, and are looking for solicitors to share our vision.

It’s time to be properly valued and rewarded for your hard work.

It’s time to enjoy more freedom, more flexibility, and quite possible more money.

About You

  • 6-10 years PQE or more
  • commercially minded
  • have a demonstrable client following or experience growing a client base
  • have a proven track record in a large regional/city law firm
  • have a commitment to the very highest standards of client service and compliance
  • self-motivated
  • Entrepreneurial

We appreciate that it might sound scary, which is why we have done the hard work for you. If you have a client following, even just one client, we will work with you every step of the way to build business and marketing plans, and bring them to fruition. Our existing consultant solicitors are here to mentor you, and we have prepared a step by step guide to setting up (what may feel like but isn’t) on your own.

If you or one of your colleagues (not necessarily a mum, or even a female!) have ever thought about setting up on your own, in order to ditch the commute and bin the suit, we can give you the opportunity to do so in a safe space.

It doesn’t even matter where you are based. We started in Brighton and then replicated our consultant solicitor hub in Liverpool. Working together, we can do that with you, wherever you wish in England or Wales.
