Hi, Thank you for your question and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I will assist you. Did your daughter ask the solicitor to register the company? How much loss has she suffered as a result? Kind regards AJ
Hi, Thank you. Did she instruct the solicitor to register the company? Did you get a retainer or engagement letter from the solicitor? Kind regards AJ
Hi Thank you. I am afraid I will have to opt out of this question. I will see if I can find a solicitor that specializes in disputes with other solicitors. Kind regards AJ
This sounds like a potential question of professional negligence.
You claim will ultimately depend upon your daughter's instructions and the advice given.
When did this happen?
Do you have the correspondence file?
Have you raised the issue with the firm? If so what has materialised from such correspondence?
You can forward the email via the paperclip icon
Sorry but I am not permitted to liaise via private email. The only way is either to attach via paperclip or cut and paste each email into a separate message.
Hello, I have read the correspondence and am unable to assist. I will opt out s another expert may be able to assist you.
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
Can you attach the letters here and I will see if I can help?
sadly I cant see them
Yes I have these. If you have instructed Solicitors already what do you need to know?You have already retained a firm for advice?
Litigation is a risk, it always is. You can hVe the best case in the world and still lose.
What the insurers are saying has some merit, as with what your own solicitors have sent.
The cost of getting this to trial based on a £55k loss would be around £40,000 in legal fees and you won't get legal aid. These costs are added to the claim if you win.
But also if you lose you are liable for these and the costs of the other side.
It seems to be that it all comes down to what the instructions were. If it was just to complete the lease then this is a problem.
If it was also business advice then there is a potential claim.
Can I clairfy anything for you about this today please?
Thank you. Yes I understand that. However my response remains the same.
There is a litigation risk. Even if someone says you have a 60% chance of winning (no lawyer will tell you its more) that means 4:10 people in exactly the same position will lose
I am not saying you cant bring a claim, but your legal costs will be significant.
You bring the claim, you have to prove it. The Defendant would not have to prove anything
Can I clarify anything else for you?
