LawNet is a leading law firm network and we’re here to help independent law firms stay ahead, through our collective resources, shared knowledge and commitment to best practice.
We’ve been around for 30 years and our members benefit from being part of a mutual, non-profit making network that delivers value through group purchasing power, strategic innovation and lobbying, together with discounted services and free CPD training. Together, we are a powerful voice for independent firms. When we speak, the sector listens.
Membership is open to ambitious, future-focused firms from £2m to £25m turnover who have a true commitment to quality, as every firm must maintain the LawNet Quality Standard ISO.9001 certification and associated Mark of Excellence in client service.
If you’re a mid-size independent looking for competitive advantage, then let’s talk. Call chief executive Chris Marston on 01926 886990 or email : firstname.lastname@example.org

Alison Lee, managing partner of Biscoes: “We could see big benefits, for the firm and for our clients, in being part of the national network of LawNet. It aligns us with other well-regarded firms through a collaborative support group, without sacrificing our independence, and gives us access to a wealth of knowledge, support and purchasing power.”
Derek Rodgers, managing partner of Gardner Leader LLP: “Much of the value of being part of LawNet comes through being exposed to new ideas. Those may come from informal conversations with our peers in a non-competing environment, or from the sort of speakers we get exposed to within LawNet, as they are of a level that we could never engage on our own. The opportunity to speak openly and frankly is something that is hard to access outside a network such as this, and you know that any response will be honest and constructive.”
Joanna DeBiase, managing partner of IBB Solicitors: “Whatever new threats and challenges appear, we know that LawNet will be looking down the road and guiding us on where to focus. One recent example would be in artificial intelligence and technology developments, where LawNet brought us in direct contact with world-renowned experts to give insight. Even in a firm of our size, we would struggle to talk to such people on our own.”
