Ask a Business Lawyer. Get Business Law Questions Answered ASAP.
I answered mutliple questions when you posted this on 5/13. Did you not get them. If not, I can summarize here. Please let me know.
My prior post:
High likelihood of suit. Unless there is something totally unacceptable in their notice, publish it in return for a general release that they NOT bring suit. Your lawyer, I think, is PERHAPS looking to make legal fees representing you in the suit.
Why? Because you sent a flyer with misinformation to begin with.
Your lawyer has a different strategy. He says "sit back and wait and maybe they won't bother to sue" It simply is different from my take as a trial lawyer for over 30 years. I would tell you to do the deed.(new flyer)...and get the general release. Then you won't have to worry about "maybe they'll sue anyway". Your attorney is not as aggressive as I. I am NOT passive.
