Referral fees and biglaw

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Nov 16, 2012 12:21 pm

Is anyone familiar with the rules surrounding referral fees when you're working at a firm (NYC specifically)? I've been told from other attorneys that if you refer a case to another attorney/firm, you get 1/3 of the judgment. Does that go to your firm, or is there ever a scenario where you can personally keep the fee? Perhaps it varies firm to firm. Any insights are appreciated.

How about you be a lawyer and go research the professional rules in NY?
