YOU’RE AN EXPERT AT PRACTISING LAW… BUT
MAYBE NOT AT RUNNING A BUSINESS.
AT LEAST NOT YET…
Together we will work through the questions, fears and concerns around growing your own business and help you to generate more clients, more income and more confidence in your own business skills.
In the past 11 years, I’ve learnt a great deal about what we lawyers don’t know about running a successful business. Maybe you are a consultant or perhaps you’ve set up your own firm… we face similar challenges.
No guessing about what works and what doesn’t work
No worrying about where your next client or piece of work is coming from
No struggling uphill feeling that you’re on your own
- Monthly Business Development meetings, time for you to dedicate to your business planning and growth
- Access to trainings designed specifically for legal business owners
- Resources for business planning, business development, creating a road map for your business and more
- Simple actionable ideas that you can implement to grow your business in your way
- And my support and encouragement to make it all happen!
I’ve learnt a great deal about running a legal business over the years and my proven tools and strategies have been used by hundreds of legal business owners ranging from day one start ups to established businesses with 50 members of staff and three offices.
You might not know me very well just yet, but you’ll recognise some of the firms whose lawyers I have been supporting for the last few years. Organisations including: Taylor Rose, Keystone, gunnercooke, Nexa, Setfords, Legal Studio, ELM Law, Evolve Law, Lennons Solicitors, Bexley Beaumont, Woodstock Legal and more.
My clients come from all of the the major disciplines including;
- Commercial Litigation
- Corporate M&A
- Private Client
- Property Litigation
- Commercial Property
Since you’re here, I’m guessing that you are either:
You’ve decided that self employment is for you and you’d like to prepare for this before handing in your notice and joining us on the crazy journey of entrepreneurship! You’re a confident fee earner, but are you also a business owner?
How valuable would it be for you to have monthly access to the skills and experiences of someone who has been there to help you to navigate the pitfalls and leap over some of the potholes and get your business off to the best possible start?
You’ve been running your legal business for a little while now.
You’re probably quite familiar with the feast and famine type lifestyle where you’re either working longer hours than you ever did in “normal” practice, and your family complain they never see you, or you’re worrying about how much you’ll make next month/quarter…
You don’t necessarily have someone you can share your worries and concerns with, perhaps your other half doesn’t want to hear about it every evening either. Surely there is a community of likeminded business owners out there who you can share this journey with?
The best thing about Hannah is that she has quite obviously “worn the T-shirt” when it comes to developing her own business and the challenges that can present in terms of (amongst other things) work-life balance and starting out as a self-employed lawyer. I would whole-heartedly recommend Hannah to anyone particularly within the consultancy-based/self-employed lawyer sector.

WHAT DO YOU ACTUALLY GET IN THE LEGAL BUSINESS INCUBATOR™ MEMBERSHIP?
The Legal Business Incubator™ membership consists of:
Live Business Development Sessions.
There is a Business Development session for 2 hours every month (the last Tuesday of each month, usually at 1pm-3pm) which is run by me and open to any incubator member to attend. In these sessions I introduce different BD activities related to your target clients and sectors so that you can drive your business forward regularly. You are welcome to join all of these sessions.
Members report just how much they benefit from having dedicated time in the diary each month to spend on BD and the support of myself and the group with ideas and feedback on what they have created. This is the most valuable aspect of the Legal Business Incubator™.
The Legal Business Incubator™ Resources Portal.
Registration for the monthly membership is via the online portal (Membervault) and this is where we house the training recordings and other valuable tools and resources. The membership is not a course and there is no requirement for you to go through the resources on the portal unless you’d like to access these additional resources.
1:1 Coaching & Accountability Session each month.
These sessions are run by me, the only business coach in the UK who specialises in working with legal business owners. You will have access to the benefit of my 11 years of self employment experience combined with 6 years of executive coaching and training for the legal profession.
The sessions will give you a chance to check in on your goals and plans for your business and troubleshoot any issues from mindset and confidence, motivation and procrastination or increasing profits.
You can choose to have this 1:1 session with Lynsie (to talk about costs and fees) or with Jono (to discuss future financial planning) if you’d like.
Hannah is a fantastic coach! She has helped me make some really positive changes in how I am managing my time, improved my approach to my business and definitely left me feeling happier overall with what I am doing.Her approach is refreshingly practical and is grounded in the commercial reality of the work we do.– Litigation Lawyer, coaching client and current Mastermind member
