Overview of Commercial Litigation and Dispute Services
We pride ourselves in creating a comprehensive range of services that handle all types of commercial litigation and dispute cases.
Here is a rundown of everything we offer:
Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) – Mediation Arbitration Negotiation
Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is an alternative for traditional court settlements. Your commercial litigation lawyer will take this out-of-court route whenever it is more feasible. The key benefits of these proceedings are its time-efficiency and negotiation choices. Main types of ADR include:
Standard negotiations are a straightforward way to diffuse commercial disputes. It requires you to meet with the other party multiple times during a designated period. Your lawyers will create a plan to resolve the pestering problem and legal issues that benefit both sides. With the right lawyer, this route is the ideal way to gain control over the final decision.
Mediation proceedings make the presence of licensed mediators mandatory. Like a judge, the appointed mediator listens to arguments presented by legal representatives (i.e. commercial litigation and dispute lawyers) from both sides. They then sanction a non-bias solution to resolve the problem.
It is vital to note that these decisions are non-binding.
If you are interested in an official negotiation solution, arbitration is the right choice for you. We consider it as a formal way to reach the final verdict. Here you will hire an arbitrator to supervise the arguments put forward by each lawyer. These statements are often presented via evidence and paperwork that gets submitted during the meetings.
In the end, the arbitrator assesses the situation based on the evidence to form a conclusive decision.
Contract Insolvency and Liquidation
Insolvency disputes and liquidation occur when one partner owes money that was taken as a loan from their associates. We evaluate the situation before outlining the best way to approach this situation. Most of the time, you have only two options in front of you.
You can either choose insolvency and sell off your assets to return the outstanding debt. Or, you can close your business by opting for the liquidation route. We prefer to use liquidation when no other option is available. That is because the chances of recovery are low compared to other alternatives.
Shareholders and Partnership Disputes
Shareholder and partnership disputes occur if one of the parties suspects foul play. There are several factors that cause this problem. The most common ones include conflict of interest, misguided use of company funds and a breach from the contract. An unauthorized shift in business plans and corporate strategies are other reasons for corporate disputes.
The Polish law allows minority parties/primary stakeholders to file a claim against their partner if these instances are repeated despite warnings from their end. It is especially essential for instances where there is a direct breach of contract.
With our legal assistance, you can file the complaint or defend it with proper evidence. We do this to verify the wrongdoings, in case your opposition misrepresents facts. You also have a higher chance of winning the settlement when you build a stronger case to support your actions.
Everything from corporate fraud, breach of contract, and minor contractual issues fall under the category of corporate disputes. You can seek consultation from our experienced lawyers to handle the situation discreetly.
We begin by running a careful assessment of the situation. Then use investigative research, collection of tangible evidence to create argumentative statements. Our systematic approach makes it possible for us to form a concrete plan to protect your rights. These disputes are resolved through trial or ADR depending on feasibility, convenience, and profitable gains.
Injunctions are official warnings sent by the court to withhold actions and unjustified operations. Associates generally request injunctions when their partner does something to jeopardise their reputation or status. Misdemeanours include corporate slander, sale of assets and other harmful actions that put the individual at a disadvantage.
The official intervention ensures that both parties collaborate on an equal level. Associates also use it as a sign to tell partners to stop before they file a lawsuit. Our commercial litigation lawyers handle injunctions by carefully assessing the situation. That way, you can leverage their legal advice to protect your rights.
