WORKING WITH VIRTUAL LAW AND VALEMUS LAW
Virtual Law, the In-House Legal Service and Locum Lawyers Service provider, together with its sister brand, Valemus Law, offers an autonomous, flexible working framework you won’t find in any traditional law firm.
You get to work the hours you want; you get to develop the client base you desire; and you get to negotiate the fees you feel give both you and the client the best value for your time and effort. What more do you need to feel motivated and focussed?
Because Virtual Law and Valemus Law operate on a low overhead model, our solicitors retain the lion’s share of fees from the work they generate. They also receive a healthy share of the billings for work they refer within the firm or have referred to them. In return, we provide all the centralised administration you require, including marketing support, professional indemnity insurance, billing and collection through our secure, compliant desktop system.
