Default Self-Employed Lawyer - How to Prove Experience for EE

Hello,

Has anyone had any experience of being a self-employed lawyer and successfully gotten their PR through EE?

Having looked at the requirements for self-employed as suggested by christmasoompa as a lawyer I don't qualify but would definitely under FSWP my only thing is that I wouldn't know what to submit as prove. I am a sole trader so no articles of incorporation, it may be highly impractical to ask clients for reference letters. So what else can I produce? Who else has had similar experiences and what have you produced and did it work?

Thanks.

Mr5Br0wn3.

Reference letters from clients are usually pretty essential. But it will depend on what else you can provide, the key thing to remember is that you need to prove you do the 'main duties' listed under your NOC code, so it would be things like contracts, emails discussing work, job descriptions, invoices, a reference from your accountant etc.

What's your CRS score?

What type of lawyer are you? If a litigation solicitor, would you be able to get letters from Barristers you had instructed? What about letters from other lawyers you have dealt with?
