Drafting Effective Letters of Advice and Demands
This seminar will address two common forms of client and opponent communication:
Letters of Advice
The letter of advice sets the scene for managing client expectations, covering yourself for negligence claims and must be clear enough to avoid any ambiguity which can fall in the client’s favour.
Letters of Demand
Learn where practitioners have been going wrong in drafting these important documents and receive tips to protect yourself from unintended claims from your client or third parties!
Failure to comply with strict legislative guidelines may have significant adverse consequences for a practitioner (and may impact on the client’s matter). It can also lead to disciplinary action and / or proceedings relating to intimidation, harassment or overstating a client’s position.
Our presenter will provide guidance on how to draft proper and effective letters of advice and demand, focusing on structure, content to include and omit, language, and how to tailor it appropriately to the client and situation.
