When asked to recommend a professional advisor you must make sure that their credentials will stand scrutiny. Your own credibility is used as a guide as to the validity of any claims made by your recommended advisor. Recommendations are to be discouraged to avoid potential liability for poor quality advice or service.
Where a recommendation is made, the association with your organisation may lead to loss of credibility in general and possible legal liability.
Avoid making such recommendation unless there are sound commercial reasons for so doing.
Always ensure that the credentials of any professional advisers you recommend are verified.
