Can a Law Department of a Company issue legal Notices and/or issue Reply Notices on behalf of its employer Company or should the said Notices be issued by a Practising Advocate only?riven

Nowhere in law is prescribed that legal notice can be issued only by the practicing lawyer. It can even be filed by the individual himself. Matter is contents in right prospective. If legal department of any company is competent enough, it can do so.riven

Mr. Arvind,
yes law department of company can issue notices and reply notices.I think law department of company officers are well educated and they are welknown all legal procedures some of or all are law graduates. In law any indvidual/company can issue notices and reply notices.They can also represent legal matters in courts of law if company give them power of attorny.It is not neccesary notice/reply notices give through practing Lawyers.In my opinion law departmen of company is well known of cimpanies matters they will issue notices /reply notices better.riven

The question is issuance of 'Legal' Notice and not mere Notice. For example certain statutes like Section 138 of NI Act stipulates only Notice and not Legal Notice. But there are other Sections in other Acts which stipulate issuance of Legal Notice. In such cases is the Law Department competent in Law to issue Legal Notices when the Law Officers of the said Department have suspended their License to Practise?riven
