We used to answer every query that came to us from readers of our website but now we receive hundreds each month and it has become impossible for us to deal with them all.

Pinsent Masons is a large law firm which usually acts for large organisations and may not be best placed to help with individual or small business queries. We are not set up to charge a new client for just one or two hours of our time because we do a lot of background administrative work before taking on any new client. Smaller firms may be better suited to working on the basis of charging for short periods. On employment matters, for example, we tend to represent employers rather than employees.

Here are some organisations that may be in a better position to help.
