After reviewing a case's information, you might determine the case is not right for your firm. Many firms choose to refer out cases using Litify Referrals Network to collaborate with hundreds of law firms that use Litify daily, and grow their referral business.
Note: You cannot refer out intakes that began as received referrals. You can only refer out intakes that originated as intakes at your firm.
1. Open an intake. In Litify Actions, click Refer Out.
2. Fill out the "Refer Out" window as you would with any new referral. Choose the handling Firm Name, response time before the referral expires, and agreement type you have established with the firm. Click Confirm.
Note: "Use default" response time is seven days. The referral will expire in seven days.
Note: If the intake does not have a Case Type or Case State, you will see this message. You must complete these fields to send this referral.
When you refer out an intake, certain fields map from the intake record to the new referral record.
