VWV's Legal Referral and Support Network

VWV Approach is a free legal referral and support network operated by VWV. This page answers common questions, such as:

What is a legal referral & support network?

As a member you can introduce work you choose not to do to VWV, without risk of losing your client. Membership helps you give your clients access to a full range of legal services and provides you with access to other benefits.

What are the main benefits?

As a member, you will benefit from:

  • Being able to offer a wider range of services to your clients.
  • A written non-poaching agreement ensuring that you retain your clients.
  • Increased income - provided the matter is not publicly funded or a criminal matter, we will pay you a share of our fees (you can waive fee share if you prefer).
  • Free legal assistance by talking to our lawyers and management team, to bounce ideas off them or talk through issues.
  • A free CPD training programme.

What areas of law are covered?

We offer a wide range of legal services to individuals and businesses. If we can't help you ourselves we will do our best to introduce you or your client to another firm who can help - we have contacts at firms across the UK, in the Channel Islands, Republic of Ireland and Isle of Man, as well as in the European Union.

What do others say about VWV Approach? 

Our VWV Approach team received the 'Team of the Year' award from the Bristol Law Society both in 2018 and 2021. The award recognises those who have made an outstanding contribution in the legal sector.

Jo Campbell, Partner, who manages VWV Approach, commented:

"To say that we are excited to have won this award twice is an understatement! VWV Approach lives and breathes VWV's values - teamwork and collaboration, putting the client at the centre of everything we do, and a commercial approach - and we are incredibly grateful for the recognition that this award brings."

How do I make a legal referral?
