Freelance Solicitors are those truly practicing on their own, without a law firm. Solicitors have significant new freedoms under Solicitors Regulation Authority rules from November 2019 about how they may practice.

What are these opportunities? Is it the right model for you and your clients? What is the difference to being a sole practitioner? How this is radically different to the consultant model which some firms already use the term freelance to describe? In this practical guide these questions will be addressed to enable you to assess the impact of the new regime and assess the freedoms on offer. This book will help both potential freelance solicitors and law firms looking to understand the freelance solicitor model.
