Working in the legal profession, you spend your day corresponding to clients, other solicitors and
other third parties involved in your transaction. In convenyancing these third parties would be estate
agents and lenders.
Whilst telephone calls are important and often necessary to explain a certain point, we still spend
the majority of our time writing e-mails and letters. For this reason there are a few points which
need to be kept in mind.
Firstly, know your audience. You would not write to a solicitor and client in the same way, this is why
it is very important to know who you are talking to. As any written correspondence will be
automatically saved in the company’s electronic file or printed and achieved in the paper file it is
important to address people correctly. A point of advice would be not to over complicate your
wording for your clients.
Secondly, know the reason for writing. It is very important to the reason why you are corresponding
with another person. It is important to know whether you are initiating the correspondence or
writing in reply of correspondence received.
