Negotiations in or out of courtWe assist the client to hold negotiations for dispute resolution out of court or in court.
Out of court negotiation
We assist the client to collect money, to claim for damages or to get in touch with the counter party or parties on account of any other reasons by out of court negotiation, usually start from sending a claim letter or a notice by contents certified registered mail ("Naiyo shomei yubin") under the name of an attorney on behalf of the client.
If the counter party or parties respond to any of the client's demands, comply with a request from the client, or anyway agree to hold negotiations with the client, we assist the client by advising as to how and what to negotiate with the counter party or parties, what to decide for a final solution to resolve the disputes among the related parties. If the related parties reached an agreement to settle the disputes among them, then we assist the client to execute an agreement on such a solution to confirm the promise by the counter party or parties to do or not to do anything that the client requested them and/or to make a lump sum or future installment payments by the counter party or parties. In some cases, we also assist to execute a notarial deed at a notary public office in order to make the agreement enforceable without a court judgment.
If the counter party or parties failed to respond to any of the client's demands, or the related parties failed to reach an agreement to settle the disputes among them, then the out of court negotiation will end in failure. In such cases, we ask the client to decide whether or not further legal action should be taken in court.
