Everything started from our need for assistance with interpreting some old, ambiguous and badly written agreements. The situation was also a bit sensitive, as the parties had previously been in serious disagreement with each other. That is when Fondia stepped into the picture and created a strategy for us to help us develop the rights that we believe were granted to us by a badly written agreement from over 20 years ago. Fondia’s work exceeded my wildest expectations and we have continued to work together since then. It is also worth mentioning that this was a well-known project, where many renowned lawyers had tried and failed.
We primarily require legal advice on contract law for our operations. As we do a lot of work with books, fairy tales, theatre and music, there is a lot to be interpreted. Contract forms express various rights that are often difficult for a layperson to understand. They are often poorly written and incomplete, which can lead to disputes. Fondia is extremely skilled in clarifying the reasons behind a contract in such situations. To find a solution, Fondia utilises their practices to create space between the parties – they are truly skilful.
I have 20 years of experience of various lawyers. Putting the customer at the centre has never been the purpose of the operation, which is why the customer often feels like they are on the outside of an already difficult situation. This in turn causes misunderstandings and frustration, which rarely results in a mutually acceptable solution. However, I think Fondia is a very modern and professional company that prioritises my needs: I am always the most important. They put in the effort to understand my situation and the need behind my work. This is the first time I feel like this with a lawyer. I feel like they spend their time efficiently and that I get a lot of value for my money. In my opinion, we understand each other, which creates security for me in the long run.
