Right to resolve

Recommended Posts

Sellers right to resolve prior to attorney interference
 

The buyer deposited $20,000 toward the purchase of a business but then abruptly disappeared and failed to return the seller's numerous phone calls or make any effort to retrieve buyer's funds. 

Then, 11 months later, the seller received a demand letter with draft complaint alleging numerous false allegations and mischaracterization of facts and circumstances.

 

Is the buyer legally obligated to resolve their grievances prior to retaining legal counsel? 

Are attorneys legally or ethically obligated to encourage potential client to resolve his grievances with the seller prior to retaining legal counsel?



Best Regards

The answer to both of those is no. A person is always free to consult an attorney any time he/she believes it worthwhile to do so and the attorney is free to render advice to that client.

 

In some circumstances a party may be obligated to make demand or take some other action before filing a claim in court, but that’s quite distinct from the issue when an attorney may be consulted.
