What sort of junior lawyer support is there?
We have a team of paralegals, trainees and lawyers from NQ to 3PQE. These individuals are ready, willing and able to help with a range of tasks, including bundling, document review, research tasks and court filings. The team operates on a ‘cab rank’ basis but we always ensure there is plenty of capacity.
How do the economics work where I refer work to a junior lawyer?
The junior lawyer’s time is billed to the client and you retain 15% of the fees generated.
Can I employ my own junior?
There are three ways in which you can secure junior support:
- We can bring in agency paralegals and junior lawyers at your request.
- You may find that enlisting the support of other lawyers within the firm for ad hoc or ongoing matters is sufficient.
- You may choose to engage external lawyers on a temporary basis through your personal services company for the duration of a specific transaction or case.
There may come a point where you have a permanent need for an administrative assistant or a junior lawyer to support your practice, and you can do this by employing them through your personal services company.
