Agency Services to Solicitors and Attorneys
Business & Commercial Solicitors welcome referrals from, and provide agency services to , legal firms outside of the Republic of Ireland. Whilst the majority of our referrals come from colleagues in Northern Ireland and Britain we are experiencing increasing referrals from law firms elsewhere.
We operate on the principle of Client 1st allowing you the comfort of knowing that your client is receiving a professional and courteous legal service. You will also receive a sharing of any fee we receive as a result of the referral
How does our Fee Structure work?
In non-contentious matters fees will be charged at our normal rates depending on the nature of the matter. A written estimate of our fees and likely expenses will be given in advance. In contentious matters, such as Personal Injury , Commercial Litigation, Divorce Proceedings or Employment Litigation, instructions will be considered on a full or part contingency basis where your client is not of means to fund their case and there is a reasonable prospect of success.
How does the Fee Sharing work?
In cases where your client has agreed and paid a particular fee (normally non-contentious matters) we can agree your share upfront.
Where costs are obtained from a third party (normally contentious matters)a percentage of these costs will be paid to you, as instructing law firm, in recognition of your instructions/referral. This percentage will be agreed at the outset and will be based on the level of involvement you may have in the proceedings.
We have been providing agency services for over 25 years and have built up a reporting model which has found high levels of satisfaction. As referred to above our guiding principle is Client 1st.
