Hey Alex! I will not be conducting any litigation, and my legal advice is sort of in the grey area. I am helping a few start ups with drafting consulting and sales contracts, as well as helping them draft emails that are leading to a litigation. Regarding the latter, I have told them that they must get a qualified lawyer. But I would like to continue to help them with the contracts.
I assisted with a negotiation as well as preparation for a mediation.
Seeing as another start up has approached me to help them now, I am thinking of setting up a legal consultancy practice to engage with while I still stay on track towards obtaining a pupillage.
Bad idea/good idea?
Is the question beyond the rate of pay?
Thank you. As long as you are not offering formal legal advice you will be ok
You can not hold yourself out to be a Solicitor or Barrister as you know as you wont be fully qualified.
But you can say you are a paralegal
So as long as you are not offering formal advice then you will be fine.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
