General Terms

TTC Business Solutions’ ARN Referral Services

TTC Business Solutions provides access and referrals to lawyers specializing in trademark and copyright-related legal services to represent you and to represent and address those specific legal needs. At no time do we draw legal conclusions, provide legal advice, opinions or recommendations about your legal rights, remedies, defenses, options, selection of forms, or strategies, or apply the law to the facts of your particular situation, or provide other services which may constitute the practice of law.

By agreeing to this ARN Terms of Service you acknowledge and agree that your specific legal matter can be referred to an independent lawyer who can represent you and specializes in trademark and copyright-related legal services for handling and completion of that matter per the specific package’s details. The attorney is not employed or otherwise affiliated with TTC Business Solutions apart from having agreed to participate in our ARN.

Attorneys in Our ARN

Attorneys in our ARN are members in good standing of the state bar in which they practice who specialize in trademark and copyright-related matters. They maintain their own professional liability insurance or have otherwise demonstrated financial responsibility consistent with the ABA guidelines for compensated referral networks.

Compensation

You acknowledge that TTC Business Solutions receives compensation under this Agreement for referring your matter to an ARN Attorney. The ARN Attorney also receives compensation under this Agreement for representing you and performing the work as purchased through your package. Once compensation is collected from you, TTC Business Solutions is responsible for forwarding to the ARN Attorney their portion of the package amount to complete the work contracted for in your package. The ARN Attorney is solely responsible for ensuring that the handling of said compensation shall comply with their state and other applicable ethical rules which may so apply.

Selection of an ARN Attorney

Upon purchase of a package for services through our ARN your matter will be referred to an ARN Attorney. Once referred, your ARN Attorney will contact you per the terms of your specific package to complete the legal work purchased. If you are not satisfied with your provided ARN Attorney or if for any reason you wish to have a different ARN Attorney complete your package we will forward your matter to another ARN Attorney for handling.

Independence of the ARN Attorney

You acknowledge that upon referring your matter to an ARN Attorney and your acceptance of the ARN Attorney to work on your matter an independent attorney-client relationship between you and the ARN Attorney will be created. Nothing in this Agreement shall be viewed to interfere with the independence of the ARN Attorney in the course and scope of his or her representation of you in this matter.

Privacy Policy

You acknowledge that while communications between you and your ARN Attorney may be protected by privilege communications between you and TTC Business Solutions are not. As such, you acknowledge that once the ARN Attorney is engaged by you following the referral under this Agreement TTC Business Solutions is not entitled to nor should be a part of any communications between you and your ARN Attorney. The Company will keep all communications between it, you, and the ARN Attorney private in compliance with the Company’s Privacy Policy unless compelled, by law, or agreement of the parties, to reveal the same.

Termination

The parties to this agreement acknowledge that they have the right to terminate the same upon written notice to the other party to the agreement consistent with our Terms of Service and individual package details.
