In some contract situations one or both of the parties may be advised to seek counsel from an independent lawyer. This is especially important in situations where a party is waiving certain legal rights or one party is represented by counsel and the other is not. This Waiver of Counsel contains provisions which explicitly state that the opportunity to seek independent counsel was considered and then knowingly and voluntarily waived. A Waiver of Counsel protects both parties and ensures that the terms of the subject contract are not undermined by a later claim that a party did not understand the legal ramifications of what he or she was signing. This Waiver of Counsel is not intended for use in a criminal proceeding or in an employment context.

General Information
Waiver of Counsel

This kit is designed to help you draft a waiver of consultation with a solicitor prior to signing a contract or other agreement.

In some contract situations, one or both of the parties may be advised to seek counsel from an independent solicitor.  This may especially be the case where one or both of the parties are waiving certain legal rights or remedies, or where one of the parties is already represented and the other party is not.  Frequently, however, the parties may decide that they wish to forego the process of consulting with a solicitor.  In such instances, it is advisable to prepare a waiver of counsel agreement, explicitly stating that the opportunity to seek independent counsel was considered and then knowingly and voluntarily waived.  This type of waiver can protect both parties going forward, and ensure that the terms of the subject contract are not undermined by a subsequent claim that one of the parties did not understand the legal ramifications of what he/she was signing.

IMPORTANT:  This agreement is not intended for use in any criminal proceeding, nor should it be used in any employment context.  It is intended only as a supplement for a non-employment-related business contract or agreement.

It is also important to note that a waiver of independent counsel may not be in your interests, and should not be signed without careful consideration of the terms and conditions of the subject contract that it accompanies.
