Amazon Attorney: Why work with a Lawyer?
Suspension to an Amazon Seller Account happens due to various reasons. What should you do?
Reinstatement of your account as quickly as possible is your first priority. Whether or not account suspension is an issue you’ve dealt with in the past as an Amazon Seller. You can seek help online from a variety of resources – firsthand accounts of other sellers who have experienced account suspension, forums, blogs, and more.
You will likely consider enlisting the help of a professional to get your account back as soon as possible yet there are some important factors to consider before seeking the help of anyone other than a lawyer:
Non-Lawyers Have No Obligation to Keep Your Information Private.
If you reveal any information about your business practices, a non-lawyer is under no obligation to keep this confidential. This includes mistakes as a seller or violations on your account that you know are your fault. As a result, they can even flip the switch on you and use the information you provide against you. When you work with a licensed attorney, you have the benefit of attorney client privilege – that means any information you disclose must be kept 100% confidential by law.
Non-Lawyers Lack the Legal Expertise to Help You Get Your Account Back.
Common reasons for account suspensions involve buyer complaints, trademark violations, and much more. Unlike non-lawyers or “consultants” who may be available to help you get your account back, a licensed attorney is able to use the law to find the best ways to approach buyers and get them to remove complaints, as well as utilize the law to deal with trademark and copyright issues.
Non-Lawyers Cannot Seek Lost Profits.
Attorneys can gain back profits that were lost from listings that were removed or sales that would have been made. Licensed attorneys have the ability to use the law to help you get back the profits you deserve.
