What should a Legal Notice in Pakistan consist of?
A legal notice in Pakistan can be sent by one of these 3 people:-
- By the individual issuing it directly
- Through a lawyer representing an indiidual or a company
- Through an individual in possession and control of a Power of Attorney
Your legal notice should have the sender’s name and address, the receiver’s names and addresses, and the cause of action (for the legal notice). How you mention the cause of notice should be legally accurate, and in the ideal situation, you should add citations to the law when necessary. If you are open to resolving the matter amicably (especially if you are using it as a means of legal arbitration) then add your demands to it as well.

What you should do if you have received a Legal Notice in Pakistan?

If you have received a legal notice, then you have one of two options; to either comply with their demands or to send a rebuttal by sending a response to the legal notice.
