Established Agency Service to law firms

Hughes & Liddy, Solicitors are the leading provider of agency services to legal firms in Northern Ireland, Great Britain and increasingly to law firms in other European countries and North America. This valuable service allows the referring law firm to firstly ensure that its client is receiving a professional and experienced legal service, and secondly to receive a referral fee in contentious matters

Our practice offers a wide ranging Agency Service to law firms outside the jurisdiction whose clients require legal advice and/or representation in the jurisdiction of the Republic of Ireland.

Correspondence and communication can be either directly with the client or with the referring law firm, at the sole discretion of that firm.

Fee Structure:

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 and employment litigation, instructions will be accepted on a contingency basis in instances where your client is not of means to fund their case and there is a reasonable prospect of success.

Fee Sharing with instructing/referring Law Firm:

Where costs are obtained from a third party 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.

We have the experience to give your clients the service you demand and they require.
