Finding a Lawyer

A recommendation from a trusted friend or colleague is ideally the best place to star, but it still pays to do your own research. 

find a lawyerThe Law Society has a search facility that allows you to search by field of expertise for example, conveyancing, family law and location. It's important that you see an appropriate lawyer for your specifc needs - you wouldn't go to a lawyer who specialises in buying and selling houses for advice on floating a business.

It's also worthwhile having an initial meeting with a lawyer to allow you to assess them and get a feel for how you would get on. Sometimes, though not always, these initial meetings can be free. If you're unsure exactly what area of law you require, feel free to phone us to discuss the issue and we can point you in the right direction. 

Before you appoint an individual or firm make sure you are comfortable with their charging structure and that they provide an estimate of cost. Legal fees can be horribly elastic! Try to pin down a likely cost before embarking.
