United Law is a regional support network, established by Trethowans, for independent law firms in Dorset, Hampshire, Wiltshire and West Sussex.
It’s free to join United Law and, as a member, you can refer clients when:
you don’t have capacity to deal with the work yourself
there’s a conflict of interest and you’re unable to act for the client
you’re asked by new / existing clients for advice on areas of law you don’t specialise in
You can also refer clients where the value of the work exceeds your Professional Indemnity Insurance cover.
As a member of United Law you’ll be able to:
access a wide range of legal services for your clients (if we’re unable to assist, we’ll use our best endeavours to find someone who can – in addition to our United Law members, we have links to other regional law firms running similar networks throughout the country)
refer clients without the risk of losing them (we provide you with a written Non-Poaching Agreement, allowing you to retain your position as their preferred legal advisor)
receive fee shares (where permitted) for matters referred to United Law where the work is undertaken by Trethowans
receive outgoing referrals where we / other United Law members are unable to assist the client (you’re not required to pay us / the other United Law member a fee share so will retain 100% of the fees you bill)
call our free telephone enquiry line and speak to our lawyers / management team about any legal / operational issues you require assistance with
attend free (face to face and online) events and training sessions
