Legal Advising Section

A legal advisor is typically a lawyer who specializes in offering legal assistance on a variety of matters. While they may sometimes pursue lawsuits and litigation for their clients, the general task of a legal advisor is to ensure that a client’s actions in a particular matter are legal. We work as legal advisor on a freelance basis, as well as counselor to a company, government office or politician, or individual clients in Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Hyderabad and Thatta, Pakistan.

We specialize in a various area of law. Family law advisors may provide legal services that concern divorce, custody, and inheritance issues. Employment law is concerned with worker’s compensation issues, workplace harassment or wrongful dismissal suits. As Commercial lawyers in Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Hyderabad and Thatta, Pakistan, We serve as advisors to businesses and corporations. Our Lawyers have also specialized in issues such as constitutional law, international law, or public policy.

Lawyers at our Law Firm also serve as a resource for an informed opinion on a legal question. They do research, provide relevant materials, and cite specific laws to help explain a law or craft a plan for a client. In some cases, we assist in preparing paperwork or examining contracts and other documents to help ensure that an action is being done legally. In some cases, we serve as a client’s attorney, representing him or her in court.

Most larger businesses and organizations in Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Hyderabad and Thatta employ us as legal advisor to manage contracts and advise on policy.
