How to work with our members

Legal assistance anywhere in the world

If you need legal help anywhere in the world Avrio Advocati can help. We have trusted members in many of the European countries and a number of other places around the world such as Brazil, Hong Kong, Turkey and Canada. If we do not have representation in a country we can often still assist you. Though our network we make many contacts with lawyers around the world we would be happy to provide you with a selection of non-members in the jurisdiction you require.

Seeking assistance from one of our members

If you would like to obtain legal assistance from an Avrio member the process is very simple. You can use our quick search function on our home page to locate a member by country, practice area or by name. You simply fill in our online contact form and submit it. This will be sent directly to our member who will then call or email you back. We recommend that you do not give the full details of any problem you are experiencing, instead just give our member an area of law that you need help with. For example “I need a distribution contract”. This is because information is transmitted over the internet and you should not reveal any aspect of your case in this way, especially if it is a litigation matter. Once you have submitted your enquiry you can rest assured that your private information will not be used for any third party marketing uses. Please see our privacy policy for full details on how we use your data.

How much will it cost?

Our members are completely autonomous when deciding how much to charge a client. They set their own hourly rates according to market forces in their country and Avrio has no control over the fee you will be charged. Some of our lawyers will work on a fixed fee basis where they set out at the beginning the total overall charge and others will charge per hour for the entire transaction. Some will also offer a no win no fee arrangement, if you wish to set up such an arrangement you should tell the member at the earliest opportunity.

Avrio does not charge clients anything for the use of our service. We do not ask members to tell us what they have charged a client. Our members simply pay a fixed annual subscription fee to be part of our group. Therefore if you seek the assistance of our members you will not pay any more than if you went directly to the lawyer.

Seeking help outside the Avrio network

We have a large bank of contacts around the world who are not Avrio members for a number of different reasons. We occasionally refer work to these lawyers. We cannot say they are part of our group and we cannot verify their professional record. However if you need urgent help in a territory we do not cover, this may be an option you would like to consider. To get contact information for a specific territory not listed, contact our General Secretariat by using the “contact us” button, and they will provide contact details where possible.
