    Hi Stephen,
    i am an immigration solicitor and preparing for an application to the SRA for authorisation for a Community Interest Company, either as a sole practitioner or with a former colleague as an ABS. Yes I know, a decision must be made!
    I discovered your site yesterday and am finding it very useful and inspiring. I have become rather bogged down in lengthy policies!
    My question is about how you manage without a client account in respect to experts’ reports and costs?
    Thank you in advance for your help. i may have other questions shortly.
    Kind regards,
    Kathryn Hodder

    Really helpful. I am a Solicitor and recently stopped working to care for my autistic child. I was considering if it was possible to do some freelance work but I gather it is far from straightforward. This was very helpful. Thank you for sharing.

      Hi – Glad that this was useful. If you are doing freelance work for other firms you might not need to set up a firm. Just get a practising certificate and do work under their flag (and their professional indemnity insurance).

    […] As we seek independence and flexible working, more and more of us will favour the option of being a Sole Practitioner, and this trend could be boosted as the SRA plans to achieve regulation that is appropriate for smaller businesses. Here’s a great post on how to go solo. […]
