Attorney Referral Program

Gerben IP offers a 20% referral fee for any trademark-related services that other practicing attorneys refer to us.

For the last 16 years, our firm has regularly assisted other attorneys and law firms by providing trademark and other IP service support that the referring firm is unable to accommodate.

How our referral program works

Refer a new trademark, copyright, or patent client to Gerben IP.

To start the referral process, simply fill out the contact form below.

Gerben IP schedules a complimentary consultation with you and your client.

We will arrange a call to discuss your client’s matter and come up with a proposed strategy, as well as a quote for the initial scope of work. Should that scope of work ever expand to anything else, you will always receive a 20% referral fee credit on legal services provided for the lifetime of the client.

Client engages with Gerben IP.

Your client will sign an engagement letter with Gerben IP in which the client provides informed consent for the referral relationship.

We will then work with you and your client to ensure any other ethical requirements are met, per the rules of any state bar.

Gerben IP reports client billings and pays the 20% referral fee each month.

Every month Gerben IP will provide an accounting of fees billed to the client and provide payment of the referral fees. The referral fees are good for the lifetime of the client.

Many times our representation extends well beyond the initial request (we can develop trademark portfolios further, as well as assist with monitoring and enforcement issues).

Gerben IP commits to ethical compliance.

Gerben IP takes the utmost care to ensure all ethical requirements are met when it comes to our referral relationships with other attorneys.

We will speak with you about the specific requirements in the state in which you’re licensed to practice.
