Judith Farbey QC and Penningtons launch innovative immigration consultancy model

14.02.12 | |

Judith Farbey QC and Penningtons Solicitors LLP have together created an independent consultancy model, designed to maximise the effectiveness of legal services in immigration law. Using a pre-retainer consultancy agreement, the concept is to speed up the provision of legal services by enabling solicitors to draw upon the subject matter expertise of a specialist QC outside the context of client casework. The model will deliver to Penningtons a combination of in-house training and rapid, generic advice about law and policy developments. The regular engagement between solicitors and independent counsel is aimed at providing innovative and immediate legal know-how, accelerating the service to clients in any retainer. Through the identification of key emerging issues and the discussion of potential products, the consultancy will help solicitors to anticipate in advance the impact of legal change for new and established clients. The consultancy with Penningtons, which is non-exclusive, begins in February.
