Law firm holding original documents and trying to take advantage for their good;

Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]


Arresto Menor
We are now asking law firm to arrange the documentary requirements for the transfer of ownership between the former members and present members.

Then, we have observed their work is not smooth enough to finish the order we asked. Because the process took almost a year without any updates from them.

So we try to withdraw our order, because we found out that urgently we need to change also the representative for Business Permit since the board resolution for appointing new officers has been executed. And that Board Resolution is kept with the law firm will be needed for the amendment of Business Permit.

However, the law firm said, instead of returning the documents, they will be the one processing it and there will be another charge on it.

Even though, we said if the process for the ownership transfer takes more time, we will be the one process for the amendment of Business Permit. And they do not give the documents back. 

The law firm has been introduced by the former owners and we did not have any choices upon the transition of the ownership.

Then now my points are;

1. What can we do with this situation except for the idea that we just negotiate with them?

2. What if they lost the documents signed by all of the related persons, what would be the liability?

Thank you so much.
