Legal tip 1282. Bank Guarantee abuse
19 March 2015 @ 10:46

Our answer today on EOS forums to your legitimate desires to campaign against Bank Guarantee abuse:

Dear xxx:

In regards for campaigning, lobbying regarding the Bank Guarantee abuse, my suggestion is that you, citizens, promote the petition that Keith started once. We will support you but, I do not see very clear that me as a professional who is also getting clients and fees by assisting clients with these problems should be actively involved on this.

We have, in the past, communicated this to General Council of Lawyers, as part of the professional duties that we, as lawyers have for the care of ethics in the profession but.... honestly, I do not see we can do more apart from this and the corresponding study, writings... that we have been offering to people ( clients and non clients) along the years.

We brought arguments and Judges arguments and law interpretation proposals which produced milestone cases on this problem and have been writing on this for legal education of both English and Spanish speaking relevant audiences for years now.

Good sign is that Supreme Court is passing beautiful pro-buyer, rightly on the spirit and letter of Law 57/68, decision against Banks now.

We will be very pleased to support and advice anyhow, as we did with the Keith Rule petition, but that, again, needs to be a citizenship Endeavour.

Best wishes
