About Us

A New and Exciting Model for Independent Solicitors

 

A new era in delivering legal services

From the 25 November 2019 the way in which Solicitors can practice changed when the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) introduced new regulations that enable Solicitors to work as “Freelance” Solicitors, or if they don’t do reserved legal work, in unregulated entities.

Our model gives Solicitors the ability to work free from the constraints of a regulated law firm. In doing so they can benefit from a better work-life balance and freedom to control and maximise their income without worrying about management or meeting targets.

Forte Independent Solicitors is an exciting new venture that offers a home to those who wish to practice as indepentent Solicitors. We offer administration and business support that allows you to grow your practice and be client focused.

Forte enables you to do what you do best – serving the needs of your clients. Let us take the administrative burden.

Fully Compliant

We help our independent Solicitor members to be fully compliant with applicable regulations, including:

●  Holding “appropriate and adequate” indemnity insurance;

●  The SRA Transparency Rules in publishing costs where necessary and publishing complaints procedures:

●  The Money Laundering, Terrorism Financing and Transfer of Fund (Information on the Payer) Regulations 2017; and

●  Holding client money on account.
