We offer an entire career development path from fee-sharing, to support in setting up your own firm, including advances to assist with start-up cashflow, access to our proprietary remote practice management solution as well as mentorship in establishing a successful practice.
We have developed a legal-tech platform that will reinvent the practice of law.
Our innovative platform, Linklawyer.co.za, makes it possible for practitioners to collaborate – and, collectively, disrupt the monopoly of large firms on corporate and high-net-worth clientele.
The platform empowers practitioners to work in their own time and space, achieving a work-life balance unattainable by office-bound, big-firm employees.
The platform is currently being trialed by KWP Attorneys, associates and consultants.
Fee-share Associates are remunerated on a 70/30 basis (70% of fee collected from clients originated and 30% on clients referred by the firm and linklawyer).
Our platform allows associates to collaborate and freely refer work while retaining ownership of the client and an origination fee of 30%, in perpetuity, on all work done for that client by other associates to which work is referred by the originating associate
Whether you prefer soliciting clients or doing the work, or both, you share in the fee, the collection of which is handled by our collection department and can be remotely tracked by you 24/7 via our app.
