About illume Legal

illume is a consultant led law firm.

We are a full service firm with clients ranging from start-up businesses to international, publicly quoted companies across many different industries.

Our lawyers are engaged as consultants and work flexibly from locations across the country with complete autonomy over the hours they work, the clients they work for and the rate they charge.

If you already have a client following, fantastic – though this is not a pre-requisite to joining illume. More important is a desire to develop your own business, something we and our existing network of exceptional lawyers can help you achieve. Whilst you develop your own business, illume will provide you wherever possible with opportunities to work for existing illume clients.
