On April 27, 2017, the LSUC (now LSO) set a cap on referral fees based on a percentage of the legal fee: 15% for the first $50,000 of legal fees and 5% of all legal fees thereafter, to an absolute cap of $25,000. There are also specific documents the LSO requires you to complete to support the referral fees and to make sure that your client understands clearly how the referral fees work.
When you refer your client who has had a motor vehicle accident, suffered an injury from medical malpractice, been sexually assaulted or has another personal injury issue, we have these referral fee documents ready, to minimize the administrative hurdles for your office to satisfy the new LSO requirements.
