Is a consignment fee split between 2 law firms?

If I sign a consignment fee agreement with 1 lawyer at a 40% fee, and the lawyer brings in a second firm in to handle the major portion of the case (because the 2nd firm specializes in my type of case) will I have to sign a second consignment fee agreement with the 2nd firm at another 40% thereby decreasing my overall take to 20%, or is the second firm supposed to split the original 40% with the first law firm?
