iLA Network

Welcome from our Co-Founders

Thank you for visiting us, it's great to see you here!

As the founders of iLA, we have collectively been advising on complex banking and property related legal issues for decades and, whilst we are solicitors, our team has also diversified over the years and have experience brokering within the specialist lending industry. This means the team at iLA has a unique insight into the requirements of lenders and understands the time pressures and constraints that can sometimes arise in transactions requiring ILA.

Our mission is to change the way in which Independent Legal Advice is provided – fast, efficient, and effective – and so our part to play in the wider transaction or agreement is carried out seamlessly, professionally and hassle free. You are at the centre of every decision we make and process we create, designed to make your experience with us as simple and stress-free as possible and (dare we say it) even enjoyable!

  • Ziggy


    Head of "Pawsitivity"

    He is on hand to help with team morale, wellbeing and motivation. He mostly enjoys giving out cuddles (to anyone and everyone!) and when he is not in the office, he can be found doing 'zoomies' on Bournemouth beach and exploring the world in his trusty camper van.

    At iLA, we believe that we perform at our best when we are at our best, and so Ziggy plays a very important role in making sure our office is full of positive energy and self care.
