Demand Letters

What is a demand letter?

Generally speaking, a demand letter is a letter, usually written by an attorney on a client’s behalf, demanding that the recipient take or cease a certain action. The purpose of a demand letter is give the other side proper notice of an action they must take; and sets the tone for legal negotiation between opposing parties.

Demand letters can also be used to establish a paper trial in the event that a lawsuit is filed and may use it to support your case or argument.

What to include in demand letters:

  • The action/inaction the other side was required to do or not do;
  • Why you have been harmed by the other side’s actions/inactions (i.e.: as a result of your action/inaction, you have breached the Agreement);
  • The relief you are requesting the other party to do (i.e.: make payment pursuant to Paragraph 1 of the Agreement); and
  • The consequences if the other party does not respond accordingly.
