Scotland's leading Legal Referral and Support Network

HM Connect is the leading support and referral network for law firms in Scotland with over 380 member firms almost one-third of all practice units.
We exist to provide additional legal resources for those areas of law you don't practice, and support for those that you do.
The network is free to join and membership offers many unique benefits including:
  • Colleague Down the Corridor giving you free access to Harper Macleod's fee earners and management team to discuss any client or operational issues
  • Free monthly legal news updates
  • An annual programme of free CPD for all fee-earners within a member firm
  • Attractive fee share arrangement for work referred
  • Invitation to our members only, highly lauded, Annual Conference – 7.5hrs CPD

We are there to assist you in keeping your client and maintaining your position as their trusted, local law firm, all with the support and expertise of Harper Macleod at your side. To ensure your peace of mind, all of our members are protected by a written non-poaching agreement allowing them to refer clients in confidence for work out with their normal areas of expertise.

Referral can take many forms including engaging with your client directly, a partnership referral where Harper Macleod works alongside your firm, a consultancy referral with Harper Macleod in the background or you may simply wish to discuss a file with one of our fee earners via the free "colleague down the corridor" service. In every case we will work with you to find the right solution for your firm and your client.

Over 380 law firms have already elected to join the network, are you ready to give us a try?
