Memorandum or Letter of Advice

The client may require a written legal advice on particular issue. Commonly, the written legal advice is prepared in two forms: memorandum and letter of advice.

If the client requires a quick and short advice, we suggest the letter of advice. The correspondence between the client and the lawyer will be conducted in the question-answer regime with follow-up advice when the answer requires detailed explanations.

If the client requires a more formal and substantial in content advice, we suggest the memorandum. Usually memorandum includes the detailed description of the normative acts related the legal issue, procedures, terms, official payments, schemes, fees and expenses, conclusions and recommendations.
