I run a commercial legal practice representing predominantly business owners and directors of companies. In my 20 year career I have observed the inner workings of different practices, and I like to think that I use the best of what I have learned in my own practice. I have also met and represented many clients. I keep hearing recurring stories from those clients who were not happy with their former lawyers before coming to me. My ears always pricked up on hearing this as I was keen not to repeat the mistakes of my colleagues. It never ceases to amaze me what trouble people find themselves in when they have chosen the wrong lawyer. The amazing part to me is that it is so simple to choose the right one. Choosing the right lawyer is simple when you know what to look for. This book shows you how.
