Do you operate a business? Whether your case involves a contractual dispute or issues within your organization, our attorneys will do everything possible to protect what you have built. Below is a summary of the areas in which Le Palier Juridique can assist and represent you:
DISPUTE WITH A CREDITOR
Disputes with creditors are common. In most cases, you will be able to come to an agreement in such a way that doesn’t negatively affect your business relations. Unfortunately, some conflicts cannot seem to be resolved. This is usually the case with one-time vendors or when the amount of the transaction is significant.
It is important in such cases to consult an attorney who will be able to provide you with legal advice on your rights and obligations based on the particular facts of your case.
Inaction is rarely the best course of action. Even if your creditor does not follow-up with you, you must be aware that they have three years to do so and that if they obtain a favourable ruling, they may very well claim the interest that has accrued since the default. It is therefore recommended to be well informed about your rights as quickly as possible.
For the treasury of a corporation, account collection can become a real issue that must sometimes be resolved through a more formal procedure.
Many elements must be assessed with one of our attorneys: the grounds of your request, the limitation, the solvency of your debtor, etc.
During the first meeting, one of our attorneys will usually be able to provide you with the best course of action that is available to you based on your situation, such as a formal demand, a legal action and/or the proposition to your debtor to settle the conflict amicably.
Account collection is an essential component of any healthy corporation. Do not hesitate to contact us so that we may work on finding a solution.
DISPUTE BETWEEN OWNERS
Disputes between owners can sometimes have major consequences for the parties involved and can even lead to the complete paralysis of the business.
The issue will be treated differently depending on the existence or not of an agreement between the business owners. If there is such an agreement, the next question is to determine if this document can help resolve the conflict. Unfortunately, in some cases, we are faced with a boilerplate agreement that omits many elements.
In any case, inaction can have irreparable consequences. It is always best to obtain legal advice before the situation becomes irreversible.
CONFLICT WITH AN EMPLOYEE
Conflicts with employees can occur in any organization. In most cases, upon meeting with an attorney, the procedures will already have been started, as the employee will have taken formal actions.
The best course of action at that point will be to assess the issue and the employee’s chances of success. It is important to determine, at this step, the best position to adopt. It is not always preferable for an organization to thoroughly argue a case brought up by the employee, as it would be best in certain situations to try to come to an amicable agreement. In other cases, it is important to be adequately prepared for the upcoming hearing.
We understand that such situations can have a significant impact on your organization, which is why we will work toward providing you with the best solution.
