You Only Pay a Legal Fee if Your Debt is Reduced or Removed
There are three potential remedies for victims of fraud and theft: Criminal (prosecution), civil (litigation), financial (remediation). We use a variety of tools and laws in the “financial remediation” process following fraud or theft to identify culprits, resolve claims and debts, pursue return of money or property, cancel illegal contracts, and help to repair negative credit information.
Our fees are contingent on recovery of monies or reduction or removal of debts and claims, where litigation is avoided. Put 25 years of negotiations, operations, and business law experience in your corner.
Debts (including judgments) and obligations (including loans) can be bought and sold in the free market just like any other right or asset. Sellers have to receive payment and be released from obligations upon sale. They have to be certain of their right to transfer the debt, loan, or judgment, without restriction. They have to deliver the documents that prove the debt or loan and that fully transfer the rights to the buyer/investor. Buyers/investors have to conduct due diligence to ascertain the rights they are getting for their money and understand the level of risk they are undertaking.
We can help with negotiations, risk assessments, due diligence, purchase, sale, and assignment documents, and with ensuring that our client gets what is necessary to effectively transfer or acquire an obligation.
Lagal fees for these services are billed hourly.
Put 25 years of negotiations, operations, and business law experience across a multitude of industries in your corner to defend against, sell rights to, or invest in debts and obligations.
Business or Commercial Debts: Debts Owed from Business Matters
When do business partnerships go awry?
When economies turn down, or when partners steal, or when success goes to the partners’ heads.
In other words- there are many ways for partnerships to head south.
Sometimes there are written partnership/operating agreements- many times there aren’t.
In either case, the partners may point fingers at eachother about who owes what to whom.
A lawyer or lawyers can get involved in two ways: To settle the matter and dissolve the relationship; or to file and/or answer a lawsuit.
If you have a problem with a partner involving money- one partner alleged to be owing money to another- we may be able to work it out, possibly and preferably without litgation.
If you are the one who is owed money, if there is potential to get it resolved without litgation, you will only pay a legal fee if we get you the money that is allegedly owed.
If your business partner is looking for you to re-pay money wrongly taken, if you have a true defense, and we can resolve it or settle it without litigation, you only pay a legal fee if the matter is settled to your satisfaction and as we agree upon your retaining our services, and where litigation is avoided.
We collect business debts from a breach in a business transaction on a contingency-fee basis, meaning that we only get paid if we collect what is owed, or only on the portion of the debt that we are able to secure, where litigation is avoided.
Sometimes, business disputes over money can be settled amicably and/or with compromise before the effort and cost of litigation becomes necessary. We can use whatever we, together, determine to be the best approach to a given situation.
Call us if you’d like to discuss a situation where you are owed money that was loaned by you or that was agreed to be paid under a contract for services or for the sale of products to another company or arising out of a partnership dispute to see how we can help obtain the monies owed from your business transaction, with or without litigation.
Business Law: Trademark Licensing and Product Distribution
Product-based businesses need an attorney who understands the market risks, Intellectual Property protection issues, distribution chain challenges, and enormous risk-investments of their clients. Providing effective trademark licensing counsel requires an understanding of brand equity, manufacturing processes, royalty structures, payment terms, distribution channels, and advertising obligations and standards, among other things. Providing good product distribution counsel requires a solid background working with manufacturers and retailers, and understanding those logistics and practices.
Neil Siskind is an attorney who has experience in all of the above gained in law firm and in-house counsel positions and can walk you through your analysis in licensing or distribution transactions so as to minimize risk and maximize results with well-structured deals.
