• False claims against me and my wife

I received a notice from legal advisor and solicitors on behalf of their client who is also their relative demanding Rs 11 lac for services offered by their client to our company for past 5 years. They haven't sent any proof of documents or agreement  in notice. They have asked us to pay the amount based on 10% of the total sales turnover of the company for past 5 years. There is no contract or agreement signed between us and the client even though the client has worked in our company and cash has been paid to her for which we have no proof. They have threatened us with criminal case. Please advise how to respond to the notice.

1. Since the legal notice has been issued you ought to reply to it. Failure to reply thereto will be construed as acceptance of the allegations.

2. State specifically that no contract was made between you and their client. Refuse to pay the amount demanded from you.

3. If a criminal or civil case is instituted against you then contest it on merits.

4. In the event a criminal case is filed you shall have to seek bail.
