Legal Services

 

First and foremost, the lawyers at Sewell Law are experienced litigators having practiced for many years. 

 

This has significant advantages for the firm's clients.

 

We are in the unique position of having knowledge of a broad range of industry sectors and expertise in several areas of law. Drawing upon that experience we assist our clients with anticipating legal issues that may subsequently impact them or their business, with a view to  avoiding future litigation. 

Foresight is better than hindsight. We keep abreast of legal developments and use our e-shots, articles, news bulletins and seminars to ensure our clients are aware of any updates that could impact them or their business. 

We are often instructed by clients to provide services

that may not be the subject of a dispute. It could be from

something as simple as advising on the distance selling

regulations or a contractual clause to drafting entire commercial

contracts for the sale and supply of goods and services:

 

Commercial Contracts

Including issues on incorporation, standard terms, interpretation 

and boilerplate clauses.

 

Consumer Contracts

distance selling.

liability of directors. Partnership agreements and duties.

other bodies including the Advertising Standards Agency and the
