Join Converse Law

Are you a senior lawyer looking to work with a firm without the shackles of fee targets and staff management? A firm where you can focus entirely on your clients?  A firm where the only partners meetings are those over a drink or two after work? What if that firm also gave you the ability to maximise your earning potential and achieve a desired work-life balance to best suit your ideal lifestyle?

If this sounds appealing, we would like to talk to you.

The firm

Converse Law comes with a strong pedigree. We provide a vibrant and innovative environment for our lawyers to give businesses commercially relevant, value-based legal advice. The firm was formed by Richard Spencer and Imdaad Sulaiman, who have private practice and in-house experience under their belts, from Ireland's largest state-owned utility company, GE and Allied Irish Bank, to BPE Solicitors and Temple Bright.

Free from the constraints of a traditional firm, we have built a modern commercial law firm based on our clients’ feedback. Our partner-only approach ensures expert advice from lawyers who understand their clients’  commercial needs, including the requirement for the control of legal costs through fixed and capped fees. Although our beginnings are in Cheltenham, Converse Law is a national firm, with national clients, so location isn’t a barrier to joining.
Whilst excellent client service is a must, we firmly believe in a positive work-life balance and having some fun along the way. You will be self-employed, benefiting from a higher than usual income, whilst having total control of your workload.

The firm provides ‘A’ rated professional indemnity insurance, marketing assistance, secure hosted IT, user-friendly case management software, expert legal cashiers, as well as the Practical Law precedent and know-how service. The admin team will also open your files and carry out all KYC checks. If you need a secretary, the firm can offer this service on a pay-as-you-go basis.

  • Commercial

As a consultant solicitor, you will be self-employed. You can set your own fee rates. You will be paid 75% of the fees you generate and 65% of fees which are referred to you by the firm or colleagues.

You set your own hours and choose when to take holiday. You can work whilst on holiday if you wish but we prefer our consultants to look after each other’s work when someone is away. This way, all consultants get to relax on holiday.

You will invoice the firm at the end of each month. We supply a report which shows all invoices paid by your clients during that month.
