The Law of Independent Legal Advice

The Law of Independent Legal Advice presents for the first time in Canada a comprehensive overview of the law governing lawyers when they provide, or fail to provide, independent legal advice to clients.
Included is a review of all relevant Canadian case law and the factors that courts consider when deciding when particular transactions warrant independent legal advice.
Topics covered include:
  • ethical/professional obligations on lawyers
  • the law of non est factum
  • undue influence and unconscionability
  • independent legal advice and bank guarantees, domestic contracts, employment agreements, corporate transactions, and insurance releases
  • negligence claims against lawyers
  • practical tips for lawyers on providing independent legal advice
The Law of Independent Legal Advice will be of interest to lawyers, judges and law students.
