French translation:notre avocat / nos avocats
Explanation:
"instructing solicitors" est le terme employé pour parler de ceux qui représentent la personne qui parle, ceux qui ont été missionés par lui dans une affaire. (ie those who have been instructed to act, those who are acting). C'est l'inverse de ce que l'on pourrait attendre en anglais. Plus proche du français d'ailleurs, car on parle de ceux qui "instruisent" l'affaire. Comme quoi les origines ne sont pas si loin!!!

instructing solicitor = notre conseil, notre avocat, l'avocat que nous avons mandaté...

"instruct a solicitor" = authorise a a lawyer to act or communicate in formation to him during proceedings (Curzon, Dictionary of Law)

Records of Counsel assisting the Commission

The inquiries into the individual deaths were conducted under quasi-judicial conditions, with formal hearings at which interested parties (the family of the deceased, the State Government concerned, the Police and/or Prison Officers’ Union and individuals who may have been associated in some way with the death) were represented. In these hearings the individual Commissioner was assisted by Counsel.

As well as assisting with the day-to-day proceedings of the Commission, Counsel assisted with a number of rulings on jurisdiction which arose during the Commission’s hearings. In most cases jurisdictional rulings of Commissioners were accepted by the parties given leave to appear, but in a number of cases formal legal challenges were made by way of appeal to the Federal Court of Australia. The rulings of the Commissioners were upheld in each case.

The Commission’s records identified as those of Counsel Assisting are:

General correspondence records of M Dodson, Counsel Assisting, Northern Territory D4087
General correspondence records of G Barbaro, Instructing Solicitor, Northern Territory D4089

I don't think there is or can be a figure which is approved, because it depends on the size of the estate and the health of the testator. A legacy of £5,000 would be trivial to Onassis, but substantial in a small estate. I would certainly feel unhappy about £1,000 or over without another solicitor making the will.

It is fairly fully discussed in Re a Solicitor [1974] 3 All ER 853 (CA), but in regard to striking off for misconduct rather than undue influence. I think a legacy of £1,000 or more could probably be set aside easily, even though the solicitor would not be struck off for it.

I would agree with your advice.

Hope this helps you. Any search on the web will give you a series of similar results. I use google.com as it is particularly fast!

Explanation:
le "sollicitor" - au Canada - peut être notaire ou avocat.
"Instruire" peut aussi avoir le sens de porter (débattre) en
justice (instruire une cause, une action)
Alors, suivant le contexte, ce pourrait être:

"après avoir obtenu réponse à ces questions, nos plaideurs seront en meilleure position pour conseiller..."

Explanation:
I trained as a solicitor although didn't finish the qualifying period of work. Companies I have worked for in the past have instructed solicitors to act for them and having worked as litigation assistant for a firm of professional indemnity solicitors in Bristol I am sure of my ground!
