Significant rise in applications at Excello Law Ltd prompts national insight programme

Significant rise in applications at Excello Law Ltd prompts national insight programme
One of the longest-established virtual law firms, Excello Law, is set to launch an unprecedented national programme of confidential insight sessions aimed at informing lawyers who are interested in making the switch from traditional private practice.
In response to a 110% growth in applications over the past year, the company will provide a series of unplugged sessions enabling commercial lawyers to gain an understanding of the working environment offered by a virtual law firm. The rise in applications suggests an appetite for change within the legal profession with increasing numbers of lawyers looking to leave the rigid approach associated with mainstream private practice, in favour of the more flexible virtual model.
Excello Law operates a virtual office structure which enables a unique and supportive working environment for lawyers looking to take greater control of their working lives and improve their work/life balance. The companys solicitors get the chance to set their own work agenda and decide when they work, who they work for and where they work, whilst benefitting from a generous remuneration structure which rewards them directly for their output and allows them to keep a greater percentage of the fees generated.
Excello founder and CEO, George Bisnought, said: Our growing number of applicants suggests that lawyers are increasingly looking for more flexibility in their working lives and a more entrepreneurial approach to practising law. We provide an operating structure which encourages and supports solicitors and allows them to offer a very high level of service, whilst removing much of the administration associated with setting up on their own.  Interestingly, on the subject of Alternative Business Structures, solicitors appear concerned that this may simply be a means for partners to line their own pockets.  However and importantly, we see our structure as being the key to ensuring that all our lawyers will benefit financially should we opt to become an ABS.  Our national programme of unplugged sessions will take the form of relaxed, private discussions and will give interested lawyers the opportunity to explore the reality behind the virtual model and all it has to offer.
Meetings will be by appointment only in order to ensure confidentiality is maintained.  Commercial lawyers who are interested in alternatives to traditional private practice will be able to meet Excellos founder George Bisnought, and members of the leadership team. The sessions will offer lawyers the chance to ask questions in complete confidence and find out if the changes coming to the legal profession, and the challenges it faces in the modern economic climate, mean that making a moving could prove the right choice.
Joanne Losty, a City trained solicitor and now a member of the Excello Law leadership team, said: Joining Excello Law has given me the freedom to set my own agenda supported by all of the IT services, business consumables, precedents, insurance and compliance services  I need. The benefits to me, and the clients I work for, are very clear and I would certainly encourage anyone with self-motivation, ambition and a desire to take the lead in addressing the changes coming to the legal profession to meet us and find out more.
The sessions kick off in London on 29 June, with further evenings planned in Birmingham on 21 September, 26 October in Manchester and 23 November in Leeds.
Commercial lawyers who are interested in taking part can sign up to Excellos mailing list via its main website at or its LinkedIn page at to ensure that they receive all of the most up to date information.
