Benefits of becoming a Law Society partner
Working with us can help you achieve your corporate goals across the legal sector by:
- enabling unrivalled market access and reach to all qualified practising lawyers in England and Wales
- granting licensed access to a Law Society logo and tagline, to directly support your marketing and sales programmes
- building awareness of your brand and product with our members
- helping you to engage with our members through our range of digital, social, print and face to face channels
- helping you reach different segments of our membership, based on factors such as practice size, areas of practice, operation / workflows, and technology platforms used
- opportunities to meet our membership and showcase your products and services at seminars and events
How partners are chosen
We have three different types of partnerships:
- professional legal services – specialist services to help develop our members' practice, such as legal training and resources
- business services – services and expertise to help our members' firms run more efficiently, such as financial services and insurance
- personal services – services that appeal to the lifestyles and interests of our members across areas such as travel, motoring, and telecommunications.
We jointly build a package of activity which is delivered in association with our dedicated partnerships marketing team.
A partnership runs for at least one year, for an agreed licence fee. Results-based commission is also payable under some partnerships.

How partners are assessed
Our assessment process is quick and easy, designed to make the most of the relationships for you, our members and the Law Society.
We assess prospective partners on a case-by-case basis. We check your offering meets our members' needs and ask you to complete a due diligence application form.
The form does not evaluate the functionality, features or suitability of the product or service, but enables us to evaluate the business. It considers:
- financial history
- previous experience of supplying to the legal sector and client references
- management of quality via policies and procedures, as well as attainment of recognised standards certificates from trade bodies and business continuity management
- organisational culture and processes, including corporate social responsibility, equality and diversity, anti-bribery, cybersecurity, data assurance and GDPR compliance
Law Society commercial partnerships have a clear framework for assessment of a prospective partner’s business viability, clearly identifying member relevance and a stringent due diligence process on the partners we choose to work with.
In the financial planning sector, we work hard to demonstrate compliance and adherence to industry standards and best practice regarding regulated activities and are completely impartial when working with partners who may be able to offer independent or restricted financial advice to members.
All chosen partners in the financial services sector are authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.
“Catax has been working with the Law Society for the past seven years. We’ve recently held our most successful webinar with the organisation.
“As Catax specialises in capital allowances, a subject that can often be perceived as challenging for many commercial property solicitors, we had to find a way that would engage with the Law Society’s members.
“The team was supportive throughout the process, from the initial brainstorm meeting to regular deadline reminders. They also helped us to source a fantastic host for the day, which helped the Q&A-style session we held run smoothly.
“Off the back of the webinar, we’ve received an outstanding amount of interest from the audience and have made some great new connections. We would highly recommend anyone who is thinking to do a webinar with the Law Society to do so.”
Group channel partner director, Catax
