Referral Scheme

Five thousand reasons to shout about the Setfords Referral Scheme

That’s right, there are at least five thousand reasons to make a really big noise about why there has never been a better time to introduce a new Consultant Solicitor to Setfords.

You could earn £5,000. Think about what you could do with that kind of money…

That could be the family holiday easily sorted.

What about some money to tuck away for a rainy day, put towards some new wheels, or pay for a next level treat for that somebody special in your life – maybe even a Tiffany & Co. diamond-level, pop the question kind of treat!

Whatever you choose, it’s entirely up to you. And it couldn’t be simpler to join in.

If you are already a Setfords Consultant or member of staff, all you need to do is make that introduction.

We are looking for experienced lawyers who are ready to make a career move and who would excel in the Setfords environment.

In return, they get flexibility over where they work, control of their earnings potential, no office politics or glass ceilings, and a full suite of back-office support ensuring their time is focussed on client work.

You are literally giving an experienced lawyer the keys to their dream of a successful legal practice. What a gift you will be giving!

But let’s get back to what you get. Here’s the math, and key terms:

If a lawyer you introduce (who hasn’t previously applied to Setfords) goes onto join us and bill, we will pay you:

  • £1,000 once fees have been paid in full in respect of the new consultant’s first billed instruction with Setfords
  • If the same consultant goes on to bill in excess of £100,000 in their first-year post-signing, we will pay you 5 per cent of their first year of bills paid (less the initial £1,000).
  • This means if the introduced consultant bills £100,000 in year 1, we will pay you a total of £5,000

To put that into perspective, many of our lawyers bill in excess of £400k in their first year at Setfords.

All we need from you is:

  • The candidate’s name, email and phone number
  • Confirmation that the candidate has agreed to speak to us about a consultancy role at Setfords
  • How you and the candidate know each other
  • Their legal practice area and PQE
  • Any other information you feel is important before we reach out

Once you have referred a consultant and they sign with Setfords, you will be automatically notified of their progress and when they raise an invoice.
