Involving Legal Services in a matter
There are certain legal matters which should be referred to us for review and advice and others which may not need to be referred to us. These are called Exempt Matters.
Clarification of which matters should be referred to us and which matters are exempt are set out in the Office of Legal Services Service Guidelines. If you are unsure whether your agreement or issue should be referred, please contact us to discuss.
