Sometimes, a lawyer’s letter is all you need to get a company, partner, vendor or person’s full and focused attention. Businesses don’t always go as planned. And when this happens, a legal settlement may be necessary. Things don’t always have to go to court. Sometimes, legal teams can settle matters quicker than a lengthy legal process can or will. So how we can avoid courting disaster?
Platinum Lawyers has both cases and experience on its side
As Lawyers, we have fought and won 99% of all cases we have undertaken in the last 10 years we’ve been in business.
If you believe you have to a right to a claim in any of the areas below – personal injury, defamation, commercial or business dispute, debt recovery, insolvency, contract disputes, intellectual property rights or others – we can help you understand if you have a case and if you should proceed with it.
Both professionally and academically qualified
Having an academic only qualification in business is rarely adequate to make the difference clients seek. But having both professional and academic qualifications means we can provide our clients with backup few others can.
Who is liable if you slip up?
Let’s look at a case to understand this better. Let’s say ‘you’re a business and you have an employee who is different to the way your other employees are and are subject to bullying and ridicule and as a business owner, you did not intervene to stop the bullying. In this country, your business could be liable to pay the employee a reasonable sum in damages. This could be $10,000 or more.
The duty of care – a concept all employers need to be aware of
The duty of care is a legal concept to employees regardless of whether they are full time or not. In airline travel, for example, even a person is a consultant and sent on official business, the company they are consulting to is responsible for their safety. So, even your travel and other internal policies are something you should get a legal company like ours to review and certify as ‘above board’ by us.
