Legal Panel

Local lawyers are a crucial part of the effective workings of Folk2Folk’s business model. At a time when other Legal Panels are being disbanded or reduced, we are shining the spotlight on local law firms and actively recruiting to our new national Legal Panel.

Essentially a modern twist on private mortgages, albeit now falling within a regulated industry, Folk2Folk was created by two country solicitors and is built upon the traditional practise of lending between like-minded people within a local community. 

Today, Folk2Folk is one of the UK’s largest Peer-to-Peer lenders (P2P) to business and a leading lender to rural business.  Folk2Folk offers a simple and approachable way for people in business to access funds and an opportunity for folks to lend within their local area whilst benefitting from a great interest rate.

As the company expands nationally, we are committed to maintaining what makes us unique: local, secured lending.  Our Legal Panel firms will contribute to our local knowledge.


If you are interested in joining our Legal Panel, please complete our Expressions of Interest Form.  For any questions, please contact Louis Mathers on
