Litigation is all about fact finding. You need to feed your solicitor with as much relevant information as possible. It is important that you are aware your solicitor is taking a good note of your instructions throughout your case and ensure instructions are confirmed in writing. Time and time again it happens at trial that certain information comes to light at cross examination. The opposing Barrister will ask that all inclusive question “why did you not mention this before”. This can sway the scales of justice and the balance of probability against you. Your case is as good as your instructions. Make sure you provide them to your solicitor.
