Lawyers who advise on areas outside their competence risk not only a sizeable claim in negligence but also the possibility of being disciplined by their local bar associations.

Just as no English solicitor should seek to give advice on the laws of France, China or even the British Virgin Islands, so it is the case that no prudent attorney in the United States, Canada or Australia should give advice on English law.

Griffin Law is able to provide formal opinions and memoranda of advice on specific aspects of English law, in line with instructions received from foreign law firms.

Those firms instructing Griffin Law may be firms with whom we have a longstanding relationship or first instructors. But whoever instructs Griffin Law can be assured of receiving accurate, commercially astute and cost-effective advice.
