We have a special members page called ConnectExtra with further information and exclusive deals for HM Connect members.

We work with you to agree the best way to deal with a referral whether that be Harper Macleod engaging with your client directly for the specific piece of work, 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.
