What should I do if I receive a letter of complaint from someone who is not a client?
I acted for the seller in a conveyancing matter where the buyer was unrepresented. I have just received a letter of complaint from the buyer who wants my firm to pay him compensation for the delayed completion. What should I do?
I specialise in criminal litigation. Can I refuse some Legal Aid Agency cases?
I specialise in privately and publicly funded criminal litigation. Some LAA cases are uneconomic and may undermine my firm’s financial viability. I’m on the duty rota scheme and don’t want to give up publicly funded litigation. Can I refuse some LAA cases?
