Why

Setfords

So, why become a consultant at Setfords?

We believe that we have several features that set us apart from the rest. Established in 2006, we are now one of the largest fee-share firms in the UK. But, it’s our support structure where we really shine. Many similar firms only offer the bare minimum amount of support. Aside from the basics, consultants are left to generate their own work.

At Setfords, we invest heavily in lead generation to help our consultants get new business. In the last twelve months alone, our business development and marketing teams have generated an additional £3m worth of business for our consultant solicitors.
