Hello, I hope you are well. My name is***** am a solicitor advocate and I will be assisting you with your question today. I am very sorry to hear of the problem you are experiencing and I will do my best to help you with this matter.

Does the legal matter actually relate to the U.K. or to a matter in Malawi

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
James hi and thanks for coming back. The incident occurred in Malawi but Malawi law is virtually British law, as it was a British protectorate/colony and Britain set up all the laws there. My problem is very serious. So there is nothing strange about the laws there
Expert:  james bruce replied 9 days ago.

As it relates to there, you would need to really deal with a lawyer there.

As it so happen I actually know a solicitor from the U.K. who now lives and works in Malawi. We use to have the same sporting interests together years ago.

I have attached his details so you would be able to make contact if you wish.

I have spoken to James and he has explained that he cannot assist me and therefore I require my £5 refund

I can try and answer your question but if the legal issue is in Malawi, you would need to speak to a lawyer there. Although the legal system is based on English law, it has also developed in its own way. That is what I have helped you with details of an English lawyer in the country.
