A Compendium of Precedents For Your Practice

British Columbia Edition

This desk reference manual is a compilation of precedent letters commonly exchanged in the process of litigating a personal injury  action.

Precedent letters can save you time and are an efficient way of addressing correspondence standard to most litigation files.

Each letter contains an introduction box that notes the intended recipient of the letter; the intention / goal of the letter and identifies the stage of litigation and in certain letters the applicable rule or legislation that provides the authority for the content of the letter.

Letters are integral part of moving the litigation file forward.  You will use them to send out retainer letters, exchange pleadings, request discovery and production of documents, serve chambers applications, notify witnesses, instruct experts, and  communicate about trial, mediation, settlement and costs.

These letters are a starting point in the thought process and provide you with beneficial tips to consider for each letter.

You will find optional sentences or paragraphs noted in italics.  These will provide you with alternative approaches to take with the correspondence, and provide suggestions for different wording.

An index of the manual is set out in the accompanying brochure.
