There are many reasons why a lawyer would refer a client. For example, they may not practice in this area or require additional experience, talent or resources to ensure that their client’s best interests are protected.
We welcome referrals and work closely with all referral sources. We honour and respect the original client relationship. We ensure that the transition of the case is seamless and efficient and keep the referring lawyer involved, providing frequent updates. Most importantly, we take care of their client.

Chapter 9 – Fees
2. A lawyer must not:
- (a) pay any remuneration to a person, other than another lawyer, in exchange for that person referring a client to the lawyer, or
- (b) act for a client if, to the lawyer’s knowledge, a person other than another lawyer was paid any remuneration by the client in exchange for being referred to the lawyer.
[amended 05/98; 03/04]
3. A lawyer acting for a client who was referred to the lawyer by another lawyer may pay that other lawyer remuneration for the referral only if, at the commencement of the retainer, the lawyer fully discloses the remuneration to the client and the client consents in writing to its payment.
We offer referrals fees to other lawyers in accordance with the rules set by The Law Society. Referrals fees are paid out of our fees once the case is resolved.The client pays nothing.
