Job Details


Our client is a leading challenger brand, engaging experienced lawyers nationally on a fee split of up to 90%. Hence for Solicitor output (say £150K) you will genuinely expect Partner level remuneration (over £100K). Most experienced Solicitors know this to be well within their capabilities, but certainly in a typical firm it would not be enough to justify that level of pay. What sets this brand apart is the level of support and interest and commitment they have for their lawyers.

This model will suit two kinds of lawyer:

1) Those who want to maximise their personal earnings from their client relationships. Ambitious and frustrated lawyers who know they can attract work but want autonomy and stronger remuneration directly related to their own performance. In a traditional firm it's hard to get Partnership and it's financial value is not necessarily likely to increase rapidly, whereas in this firm you are responsible for what you earn. It's a direct formulaic relationship without being beholden to the political whims of anyone else.

2) Those wanting freedom and flexibility. Lawyers wanting a working lifestyle they can determine for themselves, be that part-time, working remotely, or factoring substantial time away from work into your annual calendar - you set your work patterns according to what you want, and what your clients are happy with. You'll not be judged, as this choice is a fundamental core principle of this business.

What it wont suit is lawyers needing close technical supervision, or who can't find work for themselves from their own professional relationships. If you need training or sustaining then realistically you're not yet ready for this move.

Specific to this particular firm, they are committed to only engaging people for whom this will work and so they'll make sure a candidate does their diligence and is fully aware of how it will work in reality. So there'll be a recruitment process that includes working up a business plan and asking yourself some direct questions about the responsibility for finding your own work. What this firm don't want is failed hires or unhappy lawyers. Attracting people with great promises is not hard, but delivering on them to a happy workforce is a responsibility this brand takes very seriously.

There's lots to discuss - feel free to make contact with us to hear more and ask your questions.

Brooke Thornham Consulting advertisements use PQE levels purely as a guide to the level of experience required for the role and this does not prohibit applications from candidates who are able to demonstrate the necessary skills and experience. We aim to respond to enquiries as soon as possible but if we have not contacted you within 5 days then unfortunately on this occasion your application has not quite met the requirements of our client closely enough.


Brooke Thornham Consulting is a legal recruitment business established in April 2018 as a partial continuation of a previous brand which had enjoyed a successful 10 years of trading from 2007 and built a stellar reputation. With offices in Leeds, we specialise in the recruitment of Solicitors from Newly Qualified through to Partner level, and our focus is on the commercial market.

We are well networked with clients in the north of England where we serve an enviable client list encompassing Top 20 national brands and also regional practices and boutique firms. Our trade mark is our pragmatism, and trying to offer value at every opportunity.

We believe that when you give more, you get more. That’s why we’re generous with our time and expertise, and why we go out of our way to understand you, share our knowledge and add something extra – every time you work with us.

We’re experts in our field – and we get results. But over time, we develop something even more important: the intuitive understanding that really special relationships are built on.
