Independent law firms in the South unite to provide comprehensive legal services

24 Oct 2014

Law firms in Dorset, Wiltshire, and Hampshire are benefitting from a free support and referral network thanks to leading regional law firm, Trethowans.

Recently launched, United Law allows member law firms to offer their clients access to a comprehensive range of legal services.

United Law members who do not have the capacity or specialism to deal with a legal matter can contact Trethowans for assistance. If Trethowans are unable to help for any reason, they will use its network of United Law members – or its links to wider national networks – to provide the assistance needed.  United Law operates a strict no poaching agreement so member law firms can be assured of a risk free referral process.

Managing Partner at Trethowans Simon Rhodes explains, “United Law is perfect for law firms who specialise in certain areas of work and whose clients need help with other legal services that they cannot undertake themselves.”

The independently run network currently has 98 member law firms throughout the South and provides its members with access to a free telephone enquiry line, opportunities to attend free training sessions, seminars and networking events – and access to a number of suppliers who can offer discounted member rates.

Simon concludes “More and more member law firms are finding out it is a perfect way for them to offer a full service proposition, while also enjoying the benefits of being a member. Membership of United Law can bring financial, training and other benefits”.
