Hi, My name is advocate Dror Harel, and alongside my legal expertise I gained experience and a special expertise in drafting particularly efficient caution letters that help my clients achieve their goals, often with no need for a lawsuit.
A well-crafted caution letter contributes to achieving the commercial-legal goal quickly and efficiently while saving significant amounts of money compared with costly official legal procedures in court – that take up a lot of time as well.
Therefore, it is always better to try and achieve the legal goal through a caution letter before filing a suit.
A major rule is that you know how you enter the court, but you have no way of knowing how you’ll leave it.
In addition, as part of filing a suit it is highly desirable to show the court that before proceeding to the legal procedure at hand, which takes up precious judicial time from the state treasury and Ministry of Justice, we tried to resolve the differences ourselves using every means and especially through a formulated letter from a business law office in Israel.
Prior to drafting a caution letter, you have to be well acquainted with the case’s facts and then present the recipient with their legal defaults and your demands of them.
Furthermore, you have to support the legal arguments with references to relevant legislation and sometimes with case law examples as well.
That is coupled with arguments based on legal doctrines such as bona fides, damage mitigation etc.
In order to write a persuasive caution letter that will achieve the desired goal, you should reason your arguments and demands in an original, unique fashion to motivate the recipient to act as required and avoid handling the differences in court.
In a caution letter, the battle takes on a mental aspect too and often it is our job to persuade the recipient that they will not have the upper hand in court, but rather the other way around.
Adv. Dror Harel’s Israeli law firm specializes in writing and sending caution letters before filing suits in the following cases:
A caution letter prior to a lawsuit is a common legal service that serves various purposes.
A professional caution letter could nip a legal dispute in the bud.
A seasoned attorney drafting a good caution letter reviews the legal situation, describes the facts and circumstances, provides legislation and case law references and requires the recipient to act as demanded in order to avoid a lawsuit that as mentioned will only entail additional expenses and inconveniencies for both parties.
As mentioned, a caution letter prior to a lawsuit is usually sent as a last resort before filing a suit with the relevant court.
Of course, you should take into account that sending a caution letter from an attorney puts an end to private communications between the parties and the case takes on a professional legal character.
If you are on the receiving end of the caution letter, it is highly recommended not to respond on your own but rather seek legal counsel from an attorney that will draft an appropriate response letter.
Without suitable legal training, corresponding with the other party that already hired a lawyer could damage the case, since there are professional legal ways of handling the correspondence that will most likely be presented as evidence in court later on, should you get there.
One cannot predict how each recipient will react to a caution letter, since we each respond differently.
Some recipients are quick to respond and comply with demands, others negotiate and reach a settlement shortly thereafter, and still others fail to respond at all – which necessitates procedures and lawsuits.
However, our firm’s legal experience shows that in most cases, when the caution letter is well-put the recipient understands what’s required of them and the ramifications in case they refuse to cooperate, which leads to quick, efficient negotiations that eventually prove beyond any reasonable doubt that the caution letter strategy proved it worth and saved the client a great deal of expenses.
Adv. Dror Harel’s Israeli law firm is highly experienced in drafting special, efficient caution letters for individuals and corporations.
