Top Tips when Taking Formal Legal Advice, from barrister Dirk van Heck


Top tips for formal legal include:

  • It is cost-effective to ‘front-load’ your advice, and get a senior barrister at an early stage.
  • A written legal advice is advisable, because it will be complete, coherent, and you can refer back to it to see what the terms of reference are.
  • You can change your barrister at any stage for someone you gel better with, although it is better to stick with a barrister once you have started, as he will have the background knowledge of the case.
