Dear Tajom,
Before providing your consulting services, did you acquire Purchase Order (PO) from the client? Secondly, do you have evidence for providing your consulting services?
If you have proper PO and proper record for providing your services, then you may send the lawyer's notice. If the client fails to pay you then you may file a police complaint or take action as advised by your lawyer.
Thanks,
Dinesh Divekar

Dear RM Consulting: The case is of breach of contract. As per Contract Act 1872, you are entitled to the agreed upon consideration (the price) agreed for your services alongwith damages (compensation) with interest. First of all see what your agreement provides and that gives what you all you can claim. If it is silent, then the Contract Act applies and a good lawyer can help you. Anyhow your recourse lies in the civil court having jurisdiction.
Dear Trapti,
In the above matter Mr. Divakar has rightly suggested you the future course of action. But always mind that before going for legal, it needs to check at your end that nothing wrong is on your part. Did you check why your client is not making the payment? Did they addressed to any of querry for release of payment?
You check-up with the nearest consumer redressal forum, if they can take-up the matter.
The best way possible is to initiate a dialogue by third parties and if no impeccable solution is sorted then the best alternative is to seek the help from the local Police station.
Legal notices will only drag the matter and money and time spent will be valuable factor here..
Police station can be helpful if your closer with the authorities and a small gesture of gifts is a must to have matters of concern in your favor.
In fact we have enough experience of this sort to give this answer.
We had sorted the below if ever we ever smell trouble with the client
Sort out the matter with a dialogiue
Splitting the amount in installments for easy payment.
We learnt the hard way not to flare or trigger the anger of the client in the process.
Good luck
Dear All, This is a problem that I am facing too.
Bangalore Secretary -Can you explain what do you mean by Third Party? And how will the police help? I am in Kolkata and I need help to recover payment from a client in Bangalore.
