This answer was rated:

For Alex Watts
In the reply to defence, is it best practice to a point by point rebuttal referring to the numbered paragraphs in the defence?
Alex Watts :

Hello and thanks for requesting me

Alex Watts :


Alex Watts :

You should reply to the defence saying whether you admit, deny and if so your version of events, or put the Defendant to proof

Alex Watts :

So you reply to each allegation

Alex Watts :

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?


i do that by referring to the specific pt in his defence? Do I need to repeat it in my reply?

Alex Watts :

No, you just say for example paragraph 1 is admitted, denied etc

Alex Watts :

Does that help?
