We are a -haul trucking company with our own semi-truck

We are a long-haul trucking company with our own semi-truck repair shop. We make repairs to the owner operators' semi-trucks for thousands of dollars at a time. Little by little they pay us back. However, sometimes they leave our trucking company and they don't pay their repair bills. We currently have several such truck owners. The amounts they owe us range between $15K and $40K per truck. I know that filing liens against their trucks would be a complex process involving submitting complicated paperwork and closely following various deadlines. I need to find a reputable company whose employees would follow all rules and regulations and file proper IL Labor and Storage liens on the trucks. I found numerous Commercial Debt Collection companies online (attorneys), however they all said they didn't file liens.

I recently started my own social science research company.

I recently started my own social science research company. So far, it is just me. I have recently been registered with SAM and have a CAGE number, so I can bid on contracts, apply for grants, and do business with the federal government. This process takes awhile, and most researchers either work for an agency with this access, or if they are alone, they are very limited to individual grant postings. My proposed business model is to invite other research scientists to work with me, and use my SAM and Grants.gov access. I add them as authorized users to my SAM and Grants.gov accounts, and they in turn share a percentage of their grants with my company.My question is, is this legal? Can I contract with other researchers, allow them to use my access, and contract for a percentage of their awarded funds? What would such a legal contract look like? Would I need a business lawyer to write such contracts?

A vendor overbilled us charges. Those charges, per our Terms

A vendor overbilled us for certain charges. Those charges, per our Terms of Service, require prior written consent to be valid, which the vendor did not obtain in these instances. However, we paid the charges in error not noticing them until after the fact. Our Terms of Service do not have any provisions on offsetting overcharges against subsequent invoices.Are we legally entitled to offset the unauthorized charges against future invoices from the vendor?Thanks.

I had a case where the cooperative that I own two apartments

I had a case where the cooperative that I own two apartments sought a non judicial foreclosure against me. They sent notices to myself and the underlying secured party. The bank (secured party) contacted me to see if I knew about the foreclosure and wanted to know what I was doing about it. I informed them that I was filing a OSC/TRO with supreme court in Bronx NY. I asked them if they were going to get involved. The said no. They told me to let them know if there were any changes. I filed the OSC/TRO and it was signed by the judge after a short conference with myself and the defendant Cooperatives attorneys. The judge saw that the true underlying issue was for approx $500 for two different unis which I disputed. He advised myself and the defendant to get together before the next appearance and the defendant to show proof of money owed. They agreed. I called them, faxed them, and email them and their attorneys. No reply. When we reappeared in court the attorneys stated that the sale had been cancelled because the bank paid off the money. Over $6000 for each unit. I could not believe they did this after they told me they were not going to get involved. Furthermore I owe less than $6000 for both loans. There was no reason for this. I contacted them and for a week or so they were not aware of what had happened but now they are. I informed them and sent them proof of the stay and I am concerned that they will come after me for that money. They interfered with my legal due process.
