Pre trial settlement agreement

Our main and first task will be not to communicate with your counterparty, but to assess the situation and answer the question: what will be more favorable for you - pre-trial settlement or court? We will take into account all aspects of the situation and our practical experience to give you the most effective advice.

If the best solution is the agreement, we will proceed to draft a document that will take into account the interests of both parties. This may require several negotiation sessions with the other party to the conflict.

As for the form of the agreement, of course, it must be signed by both parties. In most cases, the contract does not need to be notarized. But if the dispute concerns, for example, real estate, you will have to visit a notary. We will help with the organization of such a visit, as well as provide an interpreter, if you do not understand Ukrainian - this is a prerequisite for the conclusion of agreements at the notary.

One of the main rules when drawing up such a document is clarity. There should not be any provisions that can be interpreted in different ways. If you agree, from the text of the agreement should be immediately clear for what, and on what terms.

Remember that the settlement agreement and pre-trial settlement - are still little different things. Although, the result of a pre-trial settlement should be a settlement agreement.

Why is it important to try to resolve the problem in pre-trial?

Are you and your counterparty ready to settle? This is great, because in this way, you will save both money and time considerably. The court can go extremely long, and if you are ready to come to a consensus in your disputed relations, and the law of Ukraine allows you to do this - it is always worth working in this direction.

By the way, you can conclude a settlement agreement at different stages of your dispute, but we advise pre-trial settlement specifically.

The advantages of such a solution are many, here is just a small list of them:

  • Speed;

  • Both parties will feel satisfied with the decision;

  • Less stress and more efficiency;

  • No costs for court fees and other mandatory fees.

Pre-trial settlement, as a procedure, begins with the fact that you determine what your rights have been violated by the other party, and send it a claim specifying the violation and proposing a solution to this problem. Of course, it is important to draft such a claim correctly, because on its basis you will negotiate and conclude a further contract.

Important to know

Pre trial financial settlement

Both individuals and legal entities can submit a claim to start the pre-trial settlement process. If there is a financial issue at stake, it is not worth risking the possibility of settling it faster and easier.

But many clients ask us the following question: what happens if the counterparty goes to the conclusion of a settlement agreement, but then does not fulfill it? If the case concerns a court decision, he will be obliged to fulfill it, especially since the enforcement service will step in. And what to do if, having signed an amicable agreement, the second party violates it?

It's very simple - to appeal to the court. The lawsuit will call on the defendant to fulfill the obligations that you have agreed on.

Of course, we will always be in touch, and we can help with such a situation as well.

You want to try to resolve the situation in the conflict that has arisen? Contact us! We will help to find a simple way out of any complex legal problem.
