Cognitive Law is looking for entrepreneurial Company Commercial Solicitors specialising in advising SMEs, who have the ambition and skills to continue to build on their expertise, who are confident business developers, and who would like the potential to grow their commercial practice.

We would like to hear from solicitors who have a proven track record working with SMEs on shareholder agreements, share purchase agreements, small business sales, SME company restructures, franchise agreements.

As a Consultant Solicitor at Cognitive Law you can manage your work/life commitments within the framework of a firm that combines full back-office support with the liberty to practise on your own terms. You would be free from billing targets and fixed hourly rates, enabling you to set your own charging structures and manage your own WIP, to the benefit of both you and your clients. With no more internal meetings or other non-chargeable commitments imposed on your time, you would be able to re-calibrate your work/life balance without losing income.

Cognitive Law is actively searching for Company Commercial Consultant Solicitors who want to take back management over how, when and where they practice. If you would like the control but not the compliance responsibilities that working as a self-employed solicitor can offer, joining our growing network of consultants would be ideal for you.
