What if the help I need takes longer than one hour?

We believe most queries will take less than this, but Lindsays will advise you privately if your issue needs greater attention. Should substantially more work be required you would only incur costs through reaching agreement and with your prior permission.


* Advice under the scheme is provided in good faith, and Lindsays shall not be held liable for any advice given.

* Please note if we provide personal advice, we would be unable to provide organisational advice on the same matter. In addition, we would also need to carry out a "conflict" check to ensure we do not already act for the organisation.
