I offer the following services relating to company representation:
1. Company changes
During the life of a company it is normal for members to change, the head office to be relocated, and for members to establish new branch offices etc.
I provide the necessary information and advice regarding legal aspects of making the desired changes and inform clients about the conditions and necessary documentation required for the procedures in question. I also prepare the necessary documents and represent the company before the Company Registry Court throughout the process.
2. Ongoing issues
I you’re currently running a company, it is crucial to take care of outstanding debt. Unfortunately, it often happens that one of the contracting parties or partners is not able or willing to pay when monies are due.
If the company has requested payment without success, it is advisable to send a formal letter to the debtor. In most cases – especially if the debtor company is unwilling to pay the amounts due but would be capable of doing so, they must voluntarily make the necessary payment following receipt of the legal letter of formal notice in order to avoid the liquidation of their debtor company.
If the debtor still doesn’t make the payment, the company may have access to further legal measures to ensure that the debtor pay their dues. Such procedures could include an order of payment, winding-up (liquidation) or litigious proceedings.
3. Contractual disputes
In the running of a company, a contractual partner, or the company itself may commit a breach of contract. In this case, the first important thing is to approach the case from a legal prospective and find the best solution for the company.
Generally speaking, I try to resolve disputes without having to resort a legal proceedings. This is often the most effective approach in terms of saving time and money, and possibly maintaining the business relationship. If the parties to the dispute succeed in reaching an agreement, it is important that the agreement cover all important points, represent faithfully the parties’ wishes, be compliant with the law and be legally enforceable.
If it isn’t possible to avoid litigation, I bring a high level of expertise to representing the company before court throughout the proceedings. Court representation consists of drafting, editing, filing court documents, negotiating possible settlements with the opposing party, and maintaining ongoing communication related to the case.
4. Employment Law Issues
It is important that the company’s employment contracts be clear and legally sound. I prepare company employment contract templates and provide advice related to them. Legal representing is especially important if the employee breaches it’s employment contract or its duties. A sound employment contract can avoid the company many disputes. In the case of disputes arising from an employment relationship, I represent my clients before the court and for out of court resolution.
