Civil and commercial disagreements:
when is it time to contact an attorney?
There are numerous situations leading to civil or commercial litigation for which you need an attorney. To defend your rights and help you understand or interpret various regulations or laws, it is important to find a specialized litigation attorney.
Below, we discuss in more detail the practice areas in which our teams work on a daily basis.
An unpaid debt, a letter of formal notice or hidden defects can lead to civil proceedings. With the expertise of a lawyer, these issues can be addressed in a variety of ways, such as mediation, negotiation or judgment on merits. Regardless of the situation, we will pay attention to the smallest details, protect your rights and do everything possible to ensure that you have a positive outcome.
Bérard Avocat’s response to this situation
Judgment on merits is a last resort. Before arriving at that stage, the lawyer will attempt to discuss and negotiate with the opposing party. Mediation is a win-win situation for both parties. And mediation is a good way to save time, money and reduce the overall cost of the case. If mediation is not chosen or is unsuccessful, Bérard Avocat will represent you in court.
Commercial disputes, which are generally related to the business and commerce fields, have a direct and systematic impact on the people affected. Although they vary considerably, commercial disputes may be related to business transactions, a disagreement between shareholders or unpaid debts. In fact, beyond the figures and amounts involved in these matters, the people concerned are the first to suffer the consequences.
