I am the founder and managing director of Excello Law. I qualified as a solicitor in 1991 and since that time, have worked extensively in the regions and the city within both industry and for law firms. As well as being managing director of Excello Law, I also hold a number of directorships mainly for companies in the software industry.

Whilst Excello Law may be described as a virtual law firm, such a description can be misconstrued and certainly does not do justice to what we have achieved since our launch in 2009. Excello Law is first and foremost a commercial law practice but one which is at the vanguard of the new dawn in legal services provision. These are extremely exciting times for us. Unparalleled change is opening up a world of opportunities in the legal sector and Excello Law is strategically placed to benefit. Whilst still a young Company, we have already built a reputation for excellence and a disruptive approach to the provision of legal services.

My experience both as a practising solicitor and a client of legal services shaped my view of the type of law firm I wanted to build. The word “excello” means to excel or to go beyond the expectations of others. Excellence is therefore in our name and therefore part of our DNA. In order to achieve excellence, it requires an ability to question rather than follow convention. It takes a special type of person to boldly step forward when others are taking a step back and it is this quality that sets us apart.

Our commitment to excellence means we have rejected the conventional private practice model, in order to create a collegiate working environment where lawyers can succeed. We do not tolerate office politics. We believe in giving our lawyers the tools to enable them to drive their own destiny. We also believe that our lawyers should be fairly rewarded for their efforts.

Our commitment to excellence means we recruit the best people, have stripped out the overheads clients tell us they do not need, are sensitive to the question of fees and exploit technology in order to consistently exceed our clients’ expectations.

By continually striving for excellence, we will continue to attract the best people, deliver the best service to our clients and further enhance our reputation in the sectors within which we operate. Our vision is therefore to create a legal services provider synomymous with innovation, excellence and outstanding quality and service, which makes being part of Excello Law very exhilarating.

Excello Law is therefore not a network, franchise or chambers. Since our launch in 2009, Excello Law has grown rapidly based upon these simple principles and now supported by the leadership team, I feel confident that we are in a strong position to further capitalise upon our unique qualities and talents.

Flexible working hours for every lawyer should be part of the profession’s future

Posted in Excello Law Blogs on 8 Nov 2017

Every job in the UK should be advertised as available for flexible working. This was proposed recently by the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC): one of several suggestions designed to accelerate the glacial progress of the much-publicised gender pay gap. The watchdog argued that making flexible hours available to every job applicant would help […]
