Enjoy What You Do, Make A Difference | Consultant Solicitor

Wellbeing: Enjoy what you do and make a difference
World Wellbeing Week 2020


The way our firm works embraces factors that make people happy and improve their wellbeing. These are trust, security, wealth and freedom. Trust is part of the bedrock of our firm. We deliver what we promise to our consultant lawyers so they can deliver what they promise to their clients.

You might think that working as a consultant lawyer doesn’t provide security, but we would argue the opposite. For you to be at a stage where you are genuinely ready to be a consultant lawyer, you will have accumulated two key things: loyal clients and the ability to bring in new clients.

If you are truly good at your job, wherever you go, your clients will follow. Because we don’t set billing targets you can decide how many clients you should have to ensure every one gets the excellent service they deserve, and, as we all know, a happy client is a loyal one.

Finally, we come to freedom. That’s what being a consultant lawyer is all about. At Setfords, you are in control of your life. You decide how many clients you have, where you work, and when you work. All we at Setfords care about is what you care about, and that’s delivering a brilliant service to your clients. How, when and where is entirely up to you.

The good thing about happiness is there’s plenty to go around and at Setfords we’ve certainly got our fair share.

So, what’s stopping you? It sounds pretty good, doesn’t it? And it certainly makes sense. A sense of trust, security, wealth and freedom are all factors we can appreciate would make us happier. But how many of us have them? In a traditional law firm, I’d argue not many.

Working at Setfords has changed my life immeasurably. I am a lot happier.

– Joanna Abrahams, Head of Family Law
