Representation in courts

Representation in the courts

Legal process of dispute resolution has been for many years and remains to be one of the most effective methods of protection, since other legal methods and mechanisms do not guarantee the resolution of legal problems without fail, and some issues cannot be settled out of court at all.

At the same time, this method will be effective only when the problem is tackled by experienced specialists. It often happens that while trying to save on the services of professional lawyers, or making a decision to maintain your rights without assistance, you can only worsen the initial situation in the relevant dispute.

There are unfortunately numerous drawbacks in the modern judicial system of Ukraine. Imperfect current legislation, the lack of a unified practice and interpretation of law (diametrically opposite judgments can be passed concerning the same case), and finally corruption – all these factors can ultimately become a serious problem if it is not a professional who takes up the case.

If you go to court, you may also encounter other difficulties: access to justice is rather complicated; the time limits for the consideration of a case are not observed; there are all kinds of pressure on the court, including by public authorities; the process is deliberately delayed by the other party – all these factors can result in a long-term wiggery when it is a fairly simple dispute, and you have to permanently pay to lawyers.

These and other problems can be avoided by entrusting the work to professionals. We strive for best results!
