There are a number of other areas where you generally need legal representation and advice. We have had many years experience helping clients in buying and selling their business, retail leasing, adverse possession claims, removal of restrictive covenants, town planning and wills and probate.
All too often individuals and companies practice penny wise and pound foolish strategies. Our belief is getting advice upfront saves the annus horribilis and the expensive litigation hangover. Our firm likes to avoid litigation files wherever possible and leave such matters to litigation experts. Instead we concentrate and act for clients in non-litigious matters and thus are more concerned in keeping you out of trouble rather than getting you out of trouble.
It is an unfortunate fact that a lot of litigation is the result of people trusting themselves and others whereas experience tells me not to trust others and it’s only by retaining a lawyer who will best represent you and look after your best interests.
I say good luck to those who wish to represent themselves. It’s a good lawyer who keeps you out of trouble.
