GENTLEMEN, WE WANT OUR MONEY BACK!

HOW CAN ACCREDITED SECURITIES LAW FIRMS BE TRUSTED?
GENTLEMEN, WE WANT OUR MONEY BACK! *** The BCSC and the Accredited Securities Law firms that deal with the BCSC on a daily basis have relationships with the BCSC investigators and litigators resulting in an obvious pattern of organized collusion, which destroys small start-up companies being railroaded by these law firms that charge exorbitant fees with no fair and satisfactory results other than ending up with exorbitant BCSC fines...

Gentlemen,

We are contacting you today to express our complete dissatisfaction in regards to the legal services that both of your firms provided to U-GO Brands and its Directors. We will not point the finger at anyone directly. However, we will site the various areas of discontent that resulted in a substandard legal representation on the part of both of your firms. Our experience has left us with complete distrust of lawyers and the Canadian Legal System. We have discovered over the last two years, much to our dismay, that the Regulatory Securities Enforcement System is completely corrupt and needs to be severely revamped, and new reforms need to be set in place to allow all Canadian Entrepreneurs fair and equal legal rights under the Securities Act of Canada and protect them all regardless of their financial status.

As a result of dealing with your firms and looking back at the substandard services rendered to us by your firms, we can only conclude that your firms have very close and established relationships with the BC Securities Commission investigators and litigators; this kind of relationship with a Government Securities Regulator can only result in collusion and conspiracies. How can you properly defend a client and have his/her best interest as your top priority when your firm’s billable hours are dependent upon your working relationships with the Commission?

For the record, we would like to point out and extend our appreciation to Mr. Greg Allen of Hunter Litigation and Mr. Trevor Scott of Farris Law, as they have demonstrated professionalism, unlike their senior partners who just took our money and were never to be heard from again. 

Gentleman, all we want is our money back; we are not going to accept the lip service of being dragged through the legal system… We just want our money!

WORKING RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN
ACCREDITED SECURITIES ATTORNEYS
and
THE BC SECURITIES COMMISSION
**********************************************************
U-GO Brands paid out to Farris Law and Hunter Litigations
over $200,000 in legal fees

GENTLEMEN, WE WANT OUR MONEY BACK!

After seven months of willingly cooperating with the Commission investigators, Mr. Ting, Ms. Mitchell-Banks and Ms. Donders, Peter Harris was advised by Mr. Ting that U-GO Brands should retain the services of an Accredited Securities law firm since the U-GO Brands Directors had violated “serious” Securities rules and regulations and were facing serious fines. Included in the message, Mr. Ting suggested to Harris to no longer contact him directly. In fact, every email message we received from the investigators always had a closing comment stating, and I quote: “We strongly recommend that you retain legal counsel”. This strongly suggests that the Commission investigators are acting as sales agents for the Securities law firms.
 
In seeking legal counsel, we met with five Accredited Securities law firms in Vancouver. After having met with these firms, what came to the surface was that these firms all had the same sales pitch. The below text is almost exactly to the letter in all five introduction meetings we had.

SCARE THEM INTO SUBMISSION “101”
Smoke and Mirrors * Paint a catastrophic state of affairs
We will paraphrase some of the comments made by the attorneys we visited.

1   We have reviewed the Commission’s allegations against U-GO Brands and the Directors.
    You, people, are in serious trouble, and the Commission has extraordinary powers.
 
    It’s going to cost you people a lot of money to defend this case.
 
    You're looking at serious fines and lifetime bans from dealing in Securities.
 
    This case “should cost you about” $45,000, and we need a $10,000 retainer now.

 
ATTORNEY PASS-DOWN
When one visits a medical surgeon and is told surgery is required, the patient expects to see his elected surgeon in the operating room. The same applies in criminal law; when one retains an attorney, one expects not to be passed over to a junior attorney that is unknown and has not been personally chosen. This was forced upon us by both of your firms.

PARALEGAL PREPARATION
Our preparing the classification and categorization of exhibits saved your firms countless hours of paralegal work and also wages; we submitted over 1,000 records and submitted six large 6” binders for legal counsel to review and consider. Not to brag, but I was told by one of the senior partners that my “paralegal work” was and I quote “You do better work than some of our paralegals”

In closing, Mr. Mitchell and Mr. Hunter, because of your honored reputations, we expect that you will not resort to the usual smoke and mirrors tactics while you run us around the block endlessly. We are wise to these tactics as we have experienced them all for the last two and one-half years.

Please be honorable and do what you know to be right.

HOW CAN ACCREDITED SECURITIES LAW FIRMS BE TRUSTED?

 
Respectfully,
Peter Harris
U-GO Brands
