2. Instructing Our Experts to Act

A solicitor will get in touch with you to confirm instructions to act. They will be your point of contact throughout the legal process.

A meeting can be arranged at our offices if there is a need to do so.

3. Client Care

Upon receipt of your initial instructions, you will be issued with a client care letter. The purpose of this letter is to confirm your instructions and provide you with a clear explanation of your options and any issues that may arise during the process.

Your client care letter will also include Terms of Business as well as a fee estimate for your matter. You will receive an update should the fees surrounding your legal matter change. You will also be provided with a named contact should you have any further queries.

4. Progressing Your Matter

Your matter will be dealt with in a timely manner and you will be updated at all key stages. 

5. File Closure & Storage

Before closing your file, you will be issued with a file closing letter which will detail any future steps that you may want to take. You will be informed of your right to reclaim any documentation which you initially submitted to us.

In the event that you do not want to claim anything from your file, it will be archived appropriately and securely destroyed after the appropriate length of storage time has passed. 

6. Maintaining Relationships

As your matter draws to a close, we understand that you may need further assistance in the future, be it a will, an LPA or another legal matter.

At Michael Hill Partnership we pride ourselves on the long-standing relationship we build with our clients and hope we can be of assistance to yourselves in the future.
