Introduction of Systems for Rapid and Effective Debt Relief
Failure to fulfil obligations by contractors is one of the most common problems in business. Upon concluding a contract, without sufficient foresight, it might become impossible to recover troubled debts by enforcement (by going to the court and enforcement instruments). Companies are involved in lawsuits for years in order to get money back, spending extra finances on state fees and legal services, and finally, at the enforcement stage, still do not get their money back. For this reason, some companies refuse to start relationships with partners at all without prior payment, thus reducing the sale of goods / services and their profits get drained too. Some companies, hoping for counterparts’ good faith and considering human factors, attempt to run businesses, although this approach does not work either and may drive a company to the bankruptcy.
Nexia TA offers to introduce a system that will substantially decrease your money losses and enable you to raise sales at minimal risks. We will accomplish the above by creating contract templates, securing commitments at the stage of signing a contract, simplifying dispute resolution, developing internal regulations and introducing internal monitoring tools. As a result, you will be able to significantly reduce time from problematic debt status to enforcement stage and then actually get back the money owed. The system, we offer, implies handling legal formalities with counterparts (concluding agreements, etc.), as well as elements of risk management and other non-legal activities that will ensure proper operations of the system.
Processing / Management of Troubled Assets, Representation in Court and Arbitration
Nexia TA offers processing of troubled assets, which includes recommendations on your perspective to win in court and / or the perspective of withdrawing money from a debtor during enforcement. If it is evident that you will not get the desired result in court, and / or you will not be able to get back the money from the debtor during the enforcement, you will know about it before the dispute starts and will be spared from spending extra time and money. We also offer troubled assets management service, implying communication with your creditors, conducting negotiations regarding covering the credit, periodic monitoring of the creditor’s assets and providing recommendations on the method of working on the troubled assets. Using this service will allow you to accomplish maximum results in terms of debt relief at minimal costs. Nexia TA also offers representation in the court and arbitration for the settlement of problem debts, as well as in any other property or non-property dispute, in the area of civil and administrative law.
There are frequent cases when the state bodies violate legal rights and interests of the persons carrying out entrepreneurial activities. Nexia TA legal team offers lobbying service in such cases, which aims to restore the violated rights of the business. While providing the lobbying service, our team undertakes legal analysis of the issue, cooperates closely with the apparatus of Business Ombudsman of Georgia, plans strategic negotiations with the representatives of state bodies and, through public negotiation, eliminates the problem without putting the dispute into action. As of today, the Nexia TA legal team has provided a number of successful lobbying services to a variety of businesses.
Processing Contracts from Counterparts
Any company has an obligation of concluding contracts in accordance with the contractors’ templates, e.g.: when acquiring a loan in a bank, or signing contracts with insurance agencies, etc. As a rule, the contract templates of big companies are quite large and contain many articles that may be incomprehensible to a person without legal education. Nexia TA offers services that include drafting contracts, making recommendations for amendments / additions to it, preparing the text of amendments, negotiating with the representatives of the contractor. As a result, when you sign the contract you will be sure that the text of the contract exactly matches your verbal agreement with the contractor, the contract does not contain any clauses that you are unfamiliar with and / or impose undesirable obligations.
Preparation of Contract Templates and Their Further Processing
Implementation of business transactions in a timely and safe manner is important for any company. Delaying the signing of the contract at the beginning of the relationship may lead to the loss of the client and / or partner, and starting a relationship without a contract may leave you relying only on the good faith of your partners / clients and, upon necessity, you will no longer be able to protect your rights through coercive mechanisms. In the end, your business will undergo financial losses. In order for the settlement of legal formalities to have a minimal impact on your business, it is necessary to have pre-prepared contract templates where all your requirements will be considered and you will be insured as much as possible from possible risks. Having contract templates drafted in advance, will enable you to commence and undertake business operations with partners quickly and safely. Certainly, it is impossible to take into account all the details in the contract. Over time, problems may arise that were not addressed at the template development phase, or changes in legislation may occur. Accordingly, the prepared templates need constant processing and improvement. Our company offers services for the preparation of templates and their periodic processing.
Legal Support in the Field of Criminal Law
The service provides legal assistance in criminal cases in the field of economic, entrepreneurial, financial, tax and monetary –credit system. Due to the vague regulation of Georgian law, it is often difficult for investigative bodies to draw the line between civil or administrative relations and the sphere of criminal law. Consequently, in a number of cases, an investigation is launched without grounds and failure to respond this fact properly leads to an indefinite delay in the investigation process.The ongoing criminal case against the company or its employee even prevents the company from carrying out economic activities. To handle this, Nexia TA legal team offers full service package. Our client does not need to find lawyers in different fields of law to get a positive result in this or that particular case. Our team is staffed with highly competent professionals in any field of law. Therefore, the team is much more aware of the needs of the company than a lawyer hired for a particular case. Thanks to this principle, a number of controversial cases have been successfully completed by our team.
Legal Support in the Proceedings of Administrative Offenses
In the process of carrying out economic activities, it is actually impossible for a company to completely avoid the proceedings of the case of administrative offenses. In the frame of administrative proceedings, in some cases, the company is unlawfully imposed by government agencies to pay a fine; hiring a lawyer for a specific case only is in most cases unprofitable. This is why Nexia TA legal team has the ambition and ability to fully cover the fields of law that our client-companies deal with. Our goal, based on the principle of one window, is to provide a client with comprehensive legal support during its activity and to offer a full range of legal services for more comfort. In line with our practice, a number of administrative penalties have been waived when a lawyer has been involved in litigation where the client company was ready to pay an illegally imposed fine.
