Unsolicited: The Blog
The legal world can be tough to navigate – even for lawyers! But understanding your rights is the first step towards protecting them. That’s why we’ve launched Unsolicited, Goldblatt Partners LLP’s blog.
On Unsolicited, we’ll break down the basics on the various areas of law that we practice, and provide commentary on important legal issues.
And, because we’re lawyers, we have to add that these blog posts are for informational purposes only and are not legal advice. If you want to know more or need advice, feel free to contact us.
