ACID Legal Affiliate

One of the main benefits of ACID Membership is access, through the specialist Legal Affiliates section, to initial free advice on contentious and non contentious intellectual property issues. ACID members may take this free advice with no further involvement, use their own solicitor or alternatively, take advantage of specially negotiated hourly rates provided specifically for ACID Members by Legal Affiliates in the order of a reduction on the fees which non-members would pay.

Legal Affiliates are all independent from ACID and we will not be part of your interaction with them. If you do need to use Legal Affiliate legal services you will enter into a client arrangement with them which is totally confidential. ACID cannot pay, or contribute to, any legal fees incurred in private client arrangements. If you lapse your ACID Membership subscription but continue to use the legal services of a Legal Affiliate you will be expected to pay their full fee rate.

Please ensure that you have read our Legal Affiliate information section on the website, prior to contacting a legal team, so that you understand when legal charges will apply after your initial period of free advice.
