What’s included

  • Indemnity insurance cover with no requested indemnity against the excess

    One of the biggest barriers to becoming a consultant lawyer and working on a freelance basis is the requirement for professional indemnity insurance, which can be difficult and costly to arrange. At nexa law, we look after all of this for you, saving you from both the expense and the admin. We offer all of our members a high level of specialist cover from a leading provider, giving you total peace of mind.

  • Access to Practical Law precedents

    All of our members benefit from free of charge access to Practical Law precedents, allowing them to have unlimited access to this indispensable legal reference library, constantly updated with the very latest in case law covering every area of practice.

  • CPD compliance via Practical Law

    Demonstrating continuing competence is a key requirement under the SRA code of conduct. This places solicitors under an obligation to reflect on their practice and undertake regular learning and development to ensure that their skills and knowledge remain up to date. Solicitors also need to make an annual declaration to the SRA that they have done this. We recognise that this can be harder for consultant lawyers who are working independently and don’t have access to in-house resources and support. To ensure that you are able to remain fully compliant, we offer all members access to Practical Law’s respected CPD compliance package.

  • An online case management

    Our aim here at nexa law is to allow our lawyers to focus on that they do best – practise law. To help reduce the administrative burden, we provide members with a powerful, online case management system that is easy to use and ideal for consultant lawyers who are always on the move.

  • Cashier facility

    When it comes to processing payments, everything is taken care of with our cashier facility.

  • Office 365

    As a lawyer, it is essential to be able to produce high quality, professional documents with ease. Office 365 allows you to create, access and manage and collaborate on a range of documents in a cloud based environment – so that you can work effectively and professionally wherever you are.

  • IT support

    We recognise that being an expert in law does not necessarily mean that you are also an expert in IT. To help you remain as productive as possible, we provide full IT support so that if things don’t work as expected help is at hand.

  • Credit control

    With credit control included within our package, you don’t need to worry about time consuming administrative jobs such as chasing accounts and vetting clients.

  • E mail address

    As a lawyer, presenting a credible image is key to building trust. In the modern world, something as seemingly simple as an email address can have a big impact. We offer our members a professional looking nexa email address, so that you can make the right impression and keep you professional and private lives completely separate.

  • Mail opening and scanning to e mail

    We offer our members a virtual office service that includes mail opening and scanning to email, so that no matter where you happen to be working from, you can be sure to receive any physical correspondence without delay.

  • Access to search providers

    With so many different kinds of searches required depending on the type and nature of cases, it would be both expensive and cumbersome for a consultant lawyer to manage their own accounts with all the search providers. We’ve taken care of all of that for you, so that you know you’ll always be able to find the information you need, when you need it.

  • Access to the Land Registry

    Our package includes access to Land Registry and Companies House checks, so that you can perform in-depth searches in any matters that relate to property, businesses and associated individuals.

  • Letterhead watermark

    Although our members, as consultant lawyers, work completely independently, we believe that working under the nexa brand is a great way to build trust and credibility. We offer a letterhead watermark for our lawyers to use in correspondence to ensure that they never need to compromise when it comes to their professional image.

  • Business cards and nexa law engrossment corners

    Our stationary package also includes professional, personalised business cards for use with your existing and potential clients along with branded engrossment corners. We’ve taken care of everything for you, so you can focus your efforts on building relationships, bringing new clients on board and earning what you deserve.

  • Tailored precedent letters

    With tailored precedent letters available, you can save time and be sure that everything is in order.

  • Telephone number and forwarding service

    We recognise that as a professional consultant lawyer, your personal life and privacy are important to you. To help keep things separate and maintain a professional image, we offer a telephone number and forwarding service, so that you never have to give clients your private number.

  • Access to meeting room facilities

    For consultant lawyers, the vast majority of meetings will take place at the client’s place of business or another location of their choosing. There are, however, occasions when meeting rooms may be needed. That’s why we offer our lawyers on-demand access to meeting room facilities as part of the package.

  • Ongoing business support, compliance support and auditing

    As a consultant lawyer, it is easy to feel daunted by the many aspects of running a professional services company in the field of law. To help relieve the burden, we offer every lawyer ongoing business support along with compliance support and auditing, so that you can always be sure that everything is covered.

  • Your own professional profile on the nexa law website

    As a member of nexa, you benefit from being part of an established, quality brand. To help our members make the most of this, we offer a professional profile on the nexa law website to help further enhance your reputation and credibility as a consultant lawyer.

  • Work generation from the nexa law brand

    As well as using your own contacts to generate work, you can also benefit from work generated under the nexa brand, increasing your opportunities to earn.

  • Referral fees for work referred within nexa law

    In addition to benefiting from work generated through the nexa brand, our lawyers can also take advantage of referral fees for work referred within nexa.

  • Archiving and deeds storage

    One concern that a consultant lawyer may have is how to archive documents and deeds safely and securely. At nexa we’ve taken care of this and offer a storage facility so that members never have to worry about making their own arrangements.

  • Preferential limited company set up costs

    The vast majority of consultant lawyers operate through a personal services company, which will need to be established before you can begin working with us. We recognise that not all members will want to deal with this aspect of administration and offer all lawyers the option of a set-up package with competitive costs.

  • No start-up costs

    At nexa, we pride ourselves in being honest and transparent when it comes to all things financial. We want our members to obtain the maximum possible benefit and do not charge any startup or renewal fees.

  • Additional bespoke service requests available at extra cost

    In addition to all of the above, we also offer a further range of bespoke services at extra cost. To find out more or discuss your specific needs, speak to Eliot on 03300 24 24 20 ext 1 or email eliot.hibbert@nexa.law
