    Legal Brief

    This is the first stage of any legal project. I will write down what I believe is the legal position as I have understood. This is a one page document.

    Legal Opinion

    This is the most important step in our journey to understand the issue. This is where we undertake legal research. Legal research is simply applying the facts in the legal brief to the applicable law.

Are you having Legal challenges in the Investment and Financial Services Industry? Do you need legal assistance in resolving them?

Hey there,

I am a Securities Lawyer. Let me help you wade through the Legal and Regulatory issues that may be facing you or your business.

After you hire me; -
1. I will engage you on the Upwork Platform for a Client Briefing. I will flesh out a written Client Brief so that we can be on the same page on all the facts from your end.
2. I will then study the Laws that are working against your interests so that I can better understand the issue.
3. I will flesh out a Legal Opinion and send you on the Upwork platform.
4. Based on the recommendations in the Legal Opinion, we will then come up with the best approach to tackling and solving the problem.
5. I will then draft the relevant Legal response or appraise you on the most appropriate Legal procedure or action in order to resolve the problem.
6. I will finally send you the work on the Upwork platform. The Upwork platform will be our go-between for any fees or otherwise.

When you work with me, you will get prompt and clear communication within 24 hours. You will also get a relatively quick turnaround on the work you assigned me.
