Pressure, constant checks, fines, administrative and criminal cases – all these factors constitute the reality that every businessman is faced with.
One can succeed in defending their legal rights and legitimate interests and save business provided all legal tools, nonstandard decisions and unique skills and possibilities are used.
The Law Firm Aspect offers the following services in this sphere:
– Preparation for checks and legal support while inspections and checks by state and municipal authorities are being conducted.
– Defense in administrative offence cases.
– Legal support in disputes with state and administrative bodies, among which
– appealing illicit decisions and actions (failure to act) of state and municipal bodies, as well as recovering losses caused by illicit actions.
To protect business from any illicit actions you should exploit the following measures:
– Change the inner attitude. According to the current tendencies, the State guarantees protection for entrepreneurs and demands to stop “scaring” the business leaving separate tools and possibilities. Unfair or far too scrupulous officials fear competent legal responses, they fear being liable for their illegal actions. This position should be taken into consideration protecting your rights.
– Realize your legal rights and opportunities in a competent and consistent way, get prepared for the checks in advance, attract experienced professionals who can assist you in creating the right interaction and actively appeal all illegal actions. For instance, at the initial stage it is vital to conduct competent and confident correspondence with the inspecting authorities based on personal positive experience and judicial practice. In this case the inspecting officials may retreat and start searching for a “weaker victim” to avoid arguing the legitimacy of their actions before court in response to the complaints and compensating court expenses.
– Act in an original, nonstandard way and know the right course of actions when filing a complaint to achieve the result.
Increase of criminal risks is getting more and more actual for businesses. Every big transaction or “scheme of work” can be inspected. The more successful the businessman is the more possible it is that he may attract the attention of law-enforcement agencies. New trends are targeting at high-profile cases in the sphere of corruption. As a result of such criminal cases the businessman may become a witness or even a criminal participant within the framework of the prosecution of one of the contractors, and thus lose his reputation and lose his business.
Such prosecutions contradict the latest public initiatives of the State on protecting business (liberalization of penalties, criminal liability for illegally initiated cases against businessmen etc).
