FAQ About Commercial Law

Our customer has not paid for goods or services our company provided. What can we do to recover our money and how do we prevent this happening in the future?

There are various options available, but the most common approach is to sue for the outstanding amount. The litigation process is complex and technical. Ensure that your case is in the hands of an attorney who understands your business and can offer the best advice for your unique business circumstances. Our approach is to consider the practical as well as legal circumstances of the case to resolve the issue in the most cost-effective way possible.

In many cases, the situation of unpaid amounts could have been foreseen and avoided with the right legal advice at the outset. It is vital to ensure that your business cash flow is always optimal. The best way to achieve this is to put in place various legal measures to ensure that risk of non-payment is kept to a minimum.

We offer advisory services to ensure that your business remains profitable and that risk of non-payment is kept to a minimum. Contact us to ensure that your unique business risks are covered with the right legal policies and procedures.

Is it advisable to use a contract template from sources such as the internet for my contracts?

A contract template may seem tempting as a cheap way for a layman to reduce an agreement to writing. However, there are many reasons why the use of contact templates is not advised.

Firstly, there is no such thing as a contract template that will adequately provide for all circumstances that are unique to your needs. In fact, there may be provisions in the contract template which will unintentionally place you at great risk!

Secondly, the contract template may be based on foreign law which does not apply in our country with obvious consequences.

Thirdly, and most importantly, why would you bind yourself or your business to a contract that you do not understand the consequences of? The costs of doing so will far outweigh the potential ‘savings’ of using a contract template.

Contract templates should be avoided at all costs as the risks involved in using them far outweigh any potential ‘savings’ they may seem to offer.
