Every year the global market grows, thousands of companies providing identical services appear and, of course, the competition only gets tougher. In an environment of equally good quality or equally low prices, the reputation of one company or another becomes an important factor for the consumer. When choosing between two or three, the consumer will definitely prefer the one whose reputation inspires more confidence.

An indirect guarantee of quality, for which the client is willing to pay extra, is what a company’s reputation is all about today.

The AR Civil Code and a number of rulings of the AR Constitutional Court enshrine the right of legal entities to protect business reputation.  Despite the fact that this area of disputes is considered relatively young, and court practice is ambiguous, it has already developed its own requirements and features that need to be known in order to avoid complications and delays in the process.

So, for example, the question of the protection of business reputation in court proceedings can only be raised if three elements are present at the same time:

  • There has been dissemination of false information;
  • The information disseminated is damaging to the business reputation of the company;
  • The information disseminated is untrue.

It is important to remember that goodwill takes years to build but can be damaged in an instant, so you should make every effort to preserve it by reacting quickly to any attempts to devalue your unique intangible asset.

Relations between people concerning money and property very often give rise to conflicts, often overt struggles. Financial conflicts make up a large part of all disputes between citizens in the courts of general jurisdiction.

  • recognition of ownership of property
  • property division
  • separation of ownership
  • for recovery of property from other persons
  • determination of the order for use of the property
  • removal of obstacles to the use of property
  • easement 
  • declaration of nullity of transactions

The most common disputes over immovable property are: 

on the recognition of ownership of an apartment, a residential building on the basis of participation in its construction, on the recognition of ownership of an attached part of the house, etc.

However, property disputes are not just disputes over rights in rem. It also includes disputes over rights of obligation in property. The types of disputes in this category are very different. Most of them are claims for invalidation or vice versa.

This category of disputes is very complex and requires special skills and knowledge. The specialists at Expert SM have extensive skills and knowledge of property disputes and will be able to intervene at any stage of the dispute. Our lawyers will be able to give you a thorough consultation if you have any questions. 

The specialists at Expert SM are very experienced in resolving property disputes. We know exactly what arguments work for the fastest possible resolution of a proceeding in court.

Entering into an inheritance is a rather complicated process that requires a lot of time and certain legal knowledge, and there is also a legally limited period for accepting an inheritance, which is why it is preferable to have all the formalities handled by a specialist.

When dividing an inheritance between heirs, who are usually close relatives, disputes often arise that can only be resolved in court, and here qualified legal assistance is essential.

There are several grounds for accepting an inheritance:

  • by law
  • by testament

The period of acceptance of inheritance does not depend on whether it is accepted by law or by testament. As a general rule, the time limit for accepting an inheritance is six months from the opening date of the inheritance.

When accepting an inheritance by law, there is an order of inheritance that is determined depending on the degree of relationship to the testator.

When accepting an inheritance by testament, the deceased’s opinion on the transfer of certain property to a certain person after his or her death is taken into account.

Expert SM inheritance lawyers have extensive experience in inheritance matters and participation in inheritance disputes, which is why contacting Expert SM will save you time and unpleasant emotions when registering an inheritance as well as in the case of legal proceedings.

By opting for Expert SM specialists, our private clients can be assured of choosing the right legal position at any stage of the proceedings, from negotiations to dispute resolution (which is usually the most emotional phase), and ending with appeals against judgments already rendered in the courts of the second and higher instances.

The experts of our company are ready to offer our clients the following services in the area of inheritance law:

  • Representing the client’s interests in claims to determine the degree of kinship, contesting a testament, establishing the fact of acceptance of an inheritance, recognition as an heir and division of inherited property, etc.

During a divorce, spouses often resort to judicial assistance in dividing the property they have acquired during the marriage, determining the place of residence and the order of communication with their children (which parent the child will live with and how the child will communicate with the other parent).

A prenuptial agreement and an agreement on division of property.

More and more people getting married think about the consequences if living together suddenly comes to an end for one reason or another. From a legal point of view, it is certainly right to talk to your other half about the responsibility of dissolving the marriage in order to avoid hostility after the divorce.

For a good lawyer, the best case is the one that does not go to court, which is why we strongly recommend that our private clients enter into a prenuptial agreement when getting married, which sets out the consequences for the parties if it fails. Also, when a marriage is dissolved, we strongly recommend that you enter into an amicable property division agreement without going to court.
