At APS Legal & Associates, we are often asked by those who are looking to start a career in this sector what the market looks like and how easily a business can be formed in the sector. With this in mind, we wanted to share our commonly asked questions.

Do I need a background in this area?

You don’t necessarily need a background in this area and, in fact, we have associates from multiple types of backgrounds who are making a success of their business.

The training course will cover all you need to know to be able to confidently advise your client and this support is ongoing through webinars, regional workshops, through the online associate hub and via our helplines.
Although not essential, experience in running your own business would be beneficial. If this is your first self-employed business, we have support available to help you set up.

Where do I start?

It all starts with our four day course – three technical days with a final day for business development. There is an exam on the second day of the course, this is invigilated by the IPW. Once you have attended the course and passed the exam, you will be able to start trading.

At this point, our compliance department will support you in setting up your business and our Legal Department Manager will be in touch to welcome you and give you the information you need to get going with cases.
We are here to help, so don’t worry if you find you need to call us a lot in your first few months.

Where will I typically find my clients?

This can differ for every associate as this can depend on your demographic. However, many of our current associates receive referrals from local financial advisers and mortgage brokers whose clients have a need for this service. Referrals from previous clients is something to never underestimate also.

What is a working week like?

This is completely flexible and depends on how you would like to run your business. This is a ready-made business proposition which suits both full-time and part-time models. Of course, you can tailor this to fit your lifestyle but for each of our associates, the main tasks include meeting with clients and advising them around their estate planning needs, as well as ensuring the instructions meet the client’s needs for our legal department to draft the will that is right for your client.

Tell me a little about the sector.

Currently, well over half of the UK adult population do not have a will, despite knowing that they need one in place. Further, of those that do have a will in place, many will no longer meet the need of the client and their family as the will needs updating (due to marriage, buying a property or concerns over second marriage). Additional to wills, 1% of the population have a lasting power of attorney in place, yet the need for them is increasing.

Ultimately, the market for this sector is huge and there will always be a need for this service. Clients are often looking for the most trustworthy professional to give them advice on this sector.
