"Hello, do you speak Chinese?"
- AuthorOwin Kan
Instructing a solicitor for the first time is a daunting task especially when there is a language barrier. For Chinese speaking clients, trying to find someone local who is able to converse in Chinese can help assist in their transaction progressing more efficiently.
Solicitors are actually very approachable and here at Chattertons our aim is to find the right legal solution to make a real difference in your lives and businesses.
I personally speak Chinese Cantonese and work within our Commercial Property Department covering transactional areas to do with negotiating and drafting commercial leases. My background is in residential property and so if you are dealing with house/flat sales and purchases and would prefer to communicate in Chinese (because we all know there is a lot of paperwork involved), then please do not hesitate to contact me for assistance in your legal matters; I am more than happy to go through each stage of transaction in this dialect.
My firm also specialises in a number of different areas of law which can be found on our website:
I will be on hand to assist where I can with translation, or if this is not possible, we can assist with engaging a translation service.
