    • Westlaw UK Edge
    • Lawtel

  • 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.

  • Mail opening and post scanning

    Although much legal business can now be carried out online and by email, we offer our consultants 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.

  • Preferential rates for Virtual Personal Assistant support

    Not all lawyers require secretarial or PA support, but if you do it’s reassuring to know that a virtual assistant service is available to you through a partner organisation at preferential rates. Alternatively, you are welcome to use your own virtual PA or employ your own assistant should you wish.

  • Competitively priced access to nexa’s Virtual Interns

    In partnership with Queen Mary’s University, we run an internship programme for post graduate commercial law students. We have a rolling intake of interns throughout the year who are able to support you with paralegal or trainee level legal work at highly competitive rates.

  • 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 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.

  • Archiving and deed 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 consultants never have to worry about making their own arrangements.

  • Electronic bundling

    Class leading electronic bundling software to help you prepare Court bundles or transaction bibles.

  • Preferential rates for office facilities inc. the global WeWork network

    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 preferential rates for on-demand access to meeting room facilities through WeWork and other providers.

IT and Technology

  • Leading cloud-based case management system

    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.

  • Email 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.

  • 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.

  • Electronic signature software

    Request and record electronic signatures on documents using our market leading solution powered by Docusign.

  • Office telephone number

    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 do not have to give clients or contacts your private number.

  • nexa law app

    Available in the App Store and Google Play Store, the nexa app allows you to complete know you client (KYC) obligations using the same technology employed by Challenger Banks.

Compliance and Insurance

  • Professional indemnity insurance with no 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 consultants a high level of specialist cover from a leading provider, giving you total peace of mind.

  • Fully SRA regulated ABS legal business

    As we are an SRA regulated business, you can carry out all reserved legal activities.

  • Client and office account management

    When it comes to processing payments, everything is taken care of by our dedicated accounts team. You can manage payments and transactions as you would in any law firm.

  • 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.

  • Ongoing business support, compliance 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.

  • CPD compliance package 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.

  • Preferential rates with MBL seminars

    We are a member of MBL Seminars and you are therefore able to access MBL’s discounted CPD courses.

Financial

  • 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.

  • Work generation from the nexa 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.

  • Work referrals and referral fees

    In addition to benefiting from work generated through the nexa brand, our lawyers can also take advantage of work referred to them by other nexa lawyers and referral fees for work you refer within nexa. You will also receive referral fees for any consultants you introduce to nexa.

  • 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.

Branding and Marketing

  • Professional image

    Although our 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.

  • Your own professional image on the nexa 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.

  • Business cards and stationery

    Our stationery 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.

  • Client Care Letter and Terms of Business templates

    With tailored precedent letters available to ensure your compliance with SRA rules, you can save time and be sure that everything is in order.

  • Preferential rates for Google Ad campaigns

    Generate client leads using Google Ads and receive a discount from our preferred supplier.
