IDR Law launches referral and support network

Harrogate-based contentious probate firm IDR Law has launched a free-to-join network that offers training, support, guides and tools for all will writers, independent financial advisers, law firms and probate administration companies dealing with family succession.

The aim of IDR Network is to streamline referrals from non-lawyers and provide access to information and resources.

Martin Holdsworth, founder and director at IDR Law, said: “Around half the firm’s work is referred by non-lawyers, such as accountants, financial advisers and, particularly, probate administration companies.”

As a result, IDR Law wanted to create a network where members could access the latest information, support and training for dealing with inheritance disputes, along with step-by-step guidance and collaboration when referring clients for specialist representation.

Network benefits include continuing professional development training via IDR Law’s online learning platform and access to numerous guides and tools such as a central record of more than 3,000 enquiries that the law firm has dealt, along with its responses.

The network will also provide access to IDR Law’s lawtech and fintech products, which were developed by Metrona Technologies, a company founded by Holdsworth in 2018.

Holdsworth commented: “Membership of the network is free and it includes free initial advice and assistance, tailored training modules for non-contentious private client lawyers, access to IDR’s tech products, and offers and content from trusted partners.”

In the past six months, IDR Law has doubled its number of fee-earners from eight to 16 and expanded into two new offices, with the firm now operating nationwide from Harrogate, Manchester and Bristol.
