YOU’RE AN EXPERT AT PRACTICING LAW… BUT RUNNING A BUSINESS AT THE SAME TIME IS SOMETHING ELSE.
Together let’s remove the guesswork and the false steps from the business part so that you can focus on what you do best, turn your expertise into more income and create the life/business you wanted when you set up.
Regardless of whether you’re a law firm founder/owner with 50 employees or a legal consultant with an admin assistant… we face similar challenges and there is now an easy way to find support in one place.
No worrying about where to ask questions or get a second opinion from
No struggling uphill feeling that you’re on your own
- Proven training and business coaching personalised to you and your business
- A clear process and agreed steps so that you always know what to do next in your business growth journey (and how to do it)
- Simple actionable ideas and resources that you can implement to grow your business in your way
- And my support and encouragement to make it all happen!
Over the last ten years, I’ve learnt a great deal about running a legal business and my proven tools and strategies have been used by hundreds of legal business owners ranging from day one start ups with one part time admin assistant 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 I have been supporting in the past year. Organisations including: Tiger Law, Taylor Rose, Keystone, gunnercooke, Nexa Law, Setfords, Legal Studio, ELM Law, Evolve Law, Lennons Solicitors, Woodstock Legal and more.
My legal clients and Lawyers Business Mastermind™ participants have been utilising my support to grow their businesses for the past three years and across all of 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’re fairly early on in your journey of entrepreneurship (because yes you are a business owner). You’re super comfortable with the fee earning part, you’ve done that for years and very well. But, being responsible for your own business development, client relationship management, managing the finances and the business planning alongside the day job, isn’t really happening, at least not consistently. You might be wondering how you can access the skills and experiences of those who’ve been doing this for a while to help you to navigate the pitfalls and leap over some of the potholes. You’re already familiar with the feast and famine type lifestyle where you’re either working longer hours than you ever did in “normal” practice, and you’re family complain they never see you, or you’re worrying about how much you’ll make next month/quarter…
You’ve been running your legal business for a while now, maybe 5-6 years. You have a team around you, the best part of your business is your people and the hardest part of your business is your people? You have a great pipeline of work, sometimes too much work. It’s not always the sorts of clients you’d like to be working for and sometimes you aren’t charging what you should be. Although you have a great team, you are the boss, you can’t share your worries and concerns with them and 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 can listen to your challenges and provide useful advice and support in a confidential environment so that you can continue to grow and scale your business in the right way.
Sessions with Hannah were incredible. They came at a pivotal point for my practice/business plan and Hannah really helped to navigate me in a positive direction. Hannah really listens to your challenges and provides straight-talking and commercially pragmatic advice whilst at the same time supporting you as an individual.
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 searching for a business coach particularly within the consultancy-based/self-employed lawyer sector.

IT’S TIME TO CHANGE.
More lawyers than ever are starting to see the benefits of setting up their own business. The concerns pre pandemic about where we might work and would we be able to work with others remotely, have proven to be untrue. The pandemic also highlighted the distinct lack of boundaries lawyers have, an issue which is exacerbated by self employment when it’s down to you to pay the bills.
The opportunities to create successful, sustainable and above all, enjoyable businesses are there, but we can’t do it all alone. We don’t have all of the answers, or enough time to go and find them.
Time is one of our most valuable commodities as a lawyer, we charge by it! You know how much 6 minutes of your time is worth to you.
Whilst as a business owner you need access to advice, support and training on topics like:
- marketing that suits your personality
- business development strategies for your sector
- managing your time effectively
- maximising your profits
- handling issues with staff
- delegating effectively
- being the best possible leader
- and more…
Do you have time to access all of this support? And know where to start looking for it?
How valuable would it be to have all of this in one place?
After years of going it alone, I discovered that peer support from likeminded business owners and access to coaches and mentors who had already done it, was invaluable. I would probably have given up at least twice by now without this support.
That’s why I created The Lawyers Business Mastermind™, a one stop, peer support, business coaching and training membership designed to support your personal and business goals.
Being around the right people definitely does expedite your growth and it definitely is inspiring.
Thank you for all that you’ve done helping me towards getting my business to the next level without burning myself out.

WHAT DO YOU ACTUALLY GET IN THE LAWYERS BUSINESS MASTERMIND™ MEMBERSHIP?
In the wider world of business mastermind groups have become extremely popular over the past few years and provide a wonderful resource for business owners. Many of the people I have met in mastermind groups over the past 4 years have become business collaborators and even friends.
The Lawyers Business Mastermind™ group comprises the very best of all of the resources gathered from different business sectors and experts, including;
Monthly Mastermind Hub Group Calls.
These monthly group calls are the crux of the Mastermind membership. In these calls each member has the opportunity to share their current concerns or challenges with the group and receive feedback and advice from the other members and myself to help them move forward with fresh inspiration and ideas.
Live Business Development Sessions.
There is a Business Development session for 2 hours every month which is run by me and open to any mastermind 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, many of our mastermind members do, and 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.
The Lawyers Business Mastermind™ Resources Portal.
Registration for the monthly membership is via the online portal (Membervault) and this is where we house the expert training recordings, other mini trainings. 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 this additional support.
Business Coaching & Accountability Sessions.
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 10 years of self employment experience combined with 5 years of executive coaching and training for the legal profession. The monthly sessions give you the chance to check in on your goals and plans for your business and troubleshoot any issues from mindset and confidence, motivation and procrastination to improving team performance, handling difficult staff issues or increasing profits. Between the Live Business Development Session and this Business Coaching & Accountability Session each month, members have dedicated time per month to focus on their business not only to work inside their business.
Guest Expert Clinics & Trainings.
We invite a variety of Guest Experts to share key business skills and industry information with our Mastermind members so that you can learn from both legal industry experts and those outside of our profession who can bring a different perspective on useful topics for you as a business owner. Previous Guest Experts whose recorded trainings can be found in the Resources Portal include: Vanessa Ugatti, the Charge Your Worth Expert and Michelle Peters, the Business Instructor. Coming up in February 2022 we have Lynsie Whyke who will be discussing the thorny issue of Costs with our Mastermind members. You tell us what you’d like and we will add this topic to the calendar of trainings for 2022!
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

Frequently asked questions:
What sort of legal businesses are members of the Mastermind?
Is my business ready to join the Mastermind?
I have a business partner, should we both join the Mastermind?
We have a variety of businesses inside the group and the Mastermind has been specifically designed to support that variety.
There are no hard and fast rules about when you’re ready for the Mastermind, some members are only a few months into running their own business and others have been doing it for a number of years. If you’re not sure whether your business is ready or not, let’s have a chat. There are other options for coaching and mentoring support to get you ready for the Mastermind programme.
I tend to recommend that only one of the business partners joins the Mastermind but again I’m happy to have a chat about how this would work best for your business.
