How do we get started? The first stage will be for us to take your instructions. We would normally propose a meeting at which we can obtain your instructions and advise you on your case and on how to proceed. We would then write to you setting out our understanding of your instructions and our advice so that we are all clear on our understanding of the events in your case. If we advise you to pursue the case, we could then prepare a letter to send to the other side and enter into correspondence with them to try to resolve the claim. Once we know what their take on the case is, we are normally in a better position to advise further on how to proceed. If necessary we can pursue formal litigation and seek the court’s intervention in order to get Judgment for your claim.
