About Us

A Different Model

Because our lawyers work remotely, we avoid the substantial office overheads incurred by traditional legal firms. This model enables us to invest in exceptional professionals, and to provide extremely competitive rates to our clients. 

Our solicitors will gain a detailed understanding of your requirements and guide you through the legal process from start to finish. If for any reason we need to meet in person during this time, we’ll travel to you.

Competitive pricing; flexible Fee Structures

When it comes to price, we are interested in what works for you, and can offer a range of options. Previous arrangements have included:

Retainers - allowing you the flexibility of access to a lawyer throughout the year without the costs of employing someone directly.

Fixed fees – providing you with the security and certainty of a single, capped fee. 

Hourly Rates – If you prefer an hourly rate, ours are dramatically lower than the market rates, without compromising quality.

Daily Rates – For larger engagements we are happy to agree daily rates, giving you the certainty of a fixed fee regardless of how many hours are worked.

Finally, we won’t add any unexpected extra costs to your bill. We believe that phones, copying, faxes and other support costs should be covered by our overhead.

Our Team

Your case will never be passed to a junior lawyer - because we don’t have any on our payroll. Each of our solicitors can draw on years of experience gained at well-known law firms when advising on your case. Many have also worked as in-house lawyers; experience we value as it encourages practical, commercially sensible solutions.

Ortolan Network

In addition to our core team of solicitors, we have formed the Ortolan Network. This is a select group of senior consultant lawyers we have worked with over the years. They are available to support us on projects and other work where we need additional legal resource. Each member of the Ortolan Network has been carefully vetted by us and because they are used to working with us, they fit in seamlessly when we need them. Each member of the Ortolan Network is a senior and specialist solicitor and many of them have experience as in-house lawyers as well as having worked in private practice. They cover a variety of legal disciplines including corporate, commercial, tax and employment law. All of their work is done on behalf of Ortolan Legal and is fully covered by our professional indemnity insurance and our policies and procedures.

I’ve personally worked with Ortolan Legal’s managing director on a number of transactions. Their legal advice doesn’t come wrapped in multiple caveats; it takes account of the commercial realities businesses face. Technically, they are really capable and they’re also highly personable people to work with. They represent real value for money.
