This is not the kind of question that can be answered publically.
weeks of moving in. January came around, I noticed there was a major frost all over my ceilings. Even though I have home insurance, it does not cover this issue so I reached out to the seller about this problem and he will not respond back to me. Then I started having a leaking problem under the... Read more »

I think you will need permission from the court in order to sell your shares post filing.
Should the company list the full details of the guarantee?
answered on Oct 9, 2020
A Wisconsin attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a month. As a GENERAL matter, it might depend on what the rest of the terms of the guarantee outline as remedies for a consumer in the event of less-than-full satisfaction. Since Wisconsin law could govern consumer... Read more »
Basically, I want to purchase on-demand liability insurance for independent contractors that get jobs through my site and I want to know if it is illegal to make this purchase as if I am them if I have their consent in signature form.

A Wisconsin attorney could answer best, but your question remains open for three weeks. Insurance is generally governed by state laws, but as a general matter, if information falls through the cracks and the carrier raises a defense that they were not provided with accurate information as to a...

This must be a trick question or extreme boredom. The product is yours when you pay the money and get a receipt.
I have a contract with my employer, but every time I ask for a copy of it I just get an excuse why he can’t do it. Are employees allowed by law to see his/her contract whenever they choose?
answered on Sep 13, 2019
You posted this in Business Law, a logical choice, but that might be why it hadn't been picked up by an employment law attorney, who is really the person you want input from. You could repost and add Employment Law as a category. As a general legal premise for all areas of law, the practice of... Read more »
Is it fraud if an owner of a company advertises merchandise at a certain percentage off, but then tells the sales team not to let customers know of these sales?

It's possible. It depends on the state of mind with which it's done.
Signed an advertising deal with Wisconsin based company which I am now in the process of terminating by way of paying an early termination fee. My question is since they failed to inform me of my right to terminate and no where on the contract does it state it, do I have grounds for a complaint?... Read more »
answered on Apr 4, 2019
Unfortunately, not every written contract is required to have a free "I've got second thoughts and want an early out" clause. In fact, you should be glad the contract even has an "early termination fee" clause, because that is not required everywhere either.
IMO,... Read more »
I signed contract in Ga with representative from a Wisconsin company. I am 22 and representative took me to fancy place and offered food/drinks I got caught up and signed a pretty bad deal. I will pay their early termination fee if have to but seems a little unfair. The salesperson told me that if... Read more »

Unless you signed the contract less than a week or ten days ago the "cooling off" clause has probably expired. Claiming to have been taken advantage of because the sales guy plied you with fancy food and expensive booze while he was convincing you to sign the "bad deal" will... Read more »

Yes, the lien against the vehicle is not discharged. You should probably hire an attorney to handle this for you, though.
In Sept, we got a rough estimate from a local tree trimmer to remove 3 branches from a tree overhanging our home. He was too busy for such work at the time. We agreed to wait until he was free, then we would revisit the estimate and specify the specific work we were looking at. 5 months later,... Read more »

Based on your facts, it does not seem that you had a contract. A contract requires a meeting of the minds (i.e. exactly what work would be done, when and the cost). As I understand your situation, you wanted 3 limbs removed, which did not include one containing a woodpecker nest. You asked to... Read more »

This business owner owes me over $10,000. I texted him and emailed him asking him to pay me back but he just ignore me. I can mail a demand letter to him but my guess is he won't read it. I just want to start this process. How should I start? Thanks!

You should consider filing a lawsuit. If the contract is between two businesses, you will need to hire a lawyer because only a lawyer can represent a business in court.
